Mods: sorry if I put this in the wrong place. Feel free to move or edit. I am about to make my first FTF transaction with a forum member. Can anyone recommend a location for the transaction? Not a specific location, but a type of area. For example, should we meet in a public area or stay out of the way? Should we be alone or have a friend come along? What papers, if any, should we exchange other than FA-10? (Copy of LTC, drivers license, etc.) Is it required to provide a lock or just generous? What about "safe transport" procedures during the actual exchange? I'm not expressing any mistrust, just common sense safety when dealing with a forum member who is otherwise a total stranger. Regards, Chris The FA-10 form referred to in this thread is for Massachusetts transfers only.
