    At tips on buyer from private parties on eBay?


    seller doesn't have pink slip so not sure how transaction would work if buyer isn't paying in cash.
    how to prevent seller from taking money once money is transferred from bank and personal funds?

    I've sold a lot of cars with liens on them. The easiest way is to bring cash (yes I've done cash transactions for $100K before). If the car you are buying still has a lien, your bank can set up a power of attorney to secure the title during the transaction, virtually eliminating the risk of a person trying to take money and run. The bank is held liable for the transaction at that point. It's a little bit longer process but it's not that bad.
