    meet in a public place like a coffee shop

    also bring a friend or two

    if there is a lot of money involved I would bring a weapon just in case

    I usually bring my friend who has a concealed weapons licenses in case the buyer/seller wants to try something

    You should bring protection just in case. Bring something to defend yourself with too.

    Bring at least three other cars. Set up a perimeter around your sells area. Triangle sweep would probably be the most effective. If you can, bring some snipercover fire to put on couple other buildings. Wear gloves and a mask cause airborne attacks can be a factor. Ask the guy to pay you in all ones. This gives youenough time to count the money and have your surrounding men to write down his license plate number. Once the extraction has been made, make sure you leavewithout a follower. This is where it is vital to have three other cars, preferably ones that look completely identical to your car. Find the nearest parkinggarage, this is where you and your twin dumb are to switch vehicles. From there you should be safe from any threat.

    But why are you laughing? It's cold out this time of year, and a vest could come in handy and keep you from getting a cold.

    the only thing you should be worried about is not giving the man a strong handshake
    once you establish your dominance, they wont even think about jacking you.

    my buddy handed over 275 cash to a guy at wendys and dude told him he was gonna go check back with his uncle.

    dude mobs it out of the parking lot in his f350 and my friend said he called the cops took his report, and gave him the license dude gave him as collaterol.

    never exchange money until product is in your hands (lesson learned from SCAMMED jordan XI thread, and dudes who be gettin the fast ones)


    better safe than srry and best rule is to always expect the worst so that no matter what happens, it can only benefit ya... i live and breathe by this so im aborn mother %!#%%+% natural survivalist.... eat me

    take a sharpened pencil or a pen for stabbing encase you get attacked...self defense

    money is always more important than the product.
