  • About to sell a laptop...buyer wants signature?

    Is this uncommon? The buyer said "I just need a piece of paper saying that you Mave has sold me an Asus Laptop for . then the date and both our signatures. "



    Seems like no problem, but I'm slightly annoyed by it. Does he think I'm selling him a broken laptop and therefore I'm responsible if it malfunctions in his possession? If it did, it would merely be coincidental. I'm selling it because I bought a desktop.

        True



        I've got nothing to hide anyway. First time I've had a buyer ask for that though.

            A receipt is pretty pointless since its a private transaction and he's buying it as is.

              This^. He's probably just looking for protection in case it turns out to be stolen. He is CYA that is all.

                You never know. But I'd print one out and not sign it, but I'm weird about signing anything.

                  He wants it so that if it turns out to be stolen he can prove that he got it from you.

                    if you want to be safe, just don't use your standard signature. that way he can't forge it and use it to empty your bank acco...

                      It's just a bill of sale. If I was buying something and the seller refused , I wouldn't buy it. He's just doing it to protect himself.

                        It's about theft.



                        We caught someone out a couple of years ago selling hardware from work on ebay. We noticed laptops/desktops/servers/printers going missing a lot and eventually found an eBay account one of our employees had. We had an investigation company involved which is a legal requirement for joinder; after that was done, we did a controlled buy on a couple of his items up for auction from various accounts and paid for shipping. But we also needed a receipt from him to connect the sale. Of course, they arrived and we proved that they were actually ICT stock.



                        The whole thing got legal after that, but he wants a receipt for proof of sale but I've not heard of it happen outside an investigation of some sort.



                        Question is, is your hardware legit? If so, the buyer probably has experience of this or has read it somewhere and is being cautious/a jackass. If you nicked it from work, then I would suggest you rethink the entire sale and amend your ways.

                          He wants it maybe for a tax purpose.

                              100% legit. Bought it myself on Newegg.
