The last time I sold a vehicle privately, I followed consumer advocate Clark Howard's advice and met the buyer at their bank branch. A bank employee notarized the bill of sale and title signatures at no charge. The bank withdrew the funds from the buyer's account and I received the cashier's check directly from the bank, so I knew it was not a counterfeit.
As mentioned above by Asquared, if you post your phone number on a Craig's list ad, the spam callers will be relentless, trying to get you to pay and list with them. I learned this the hard way a few years ago... Adjusting the phone number slightly in the ad completely stopped the spammers from calling, as they seem to use software to harvest the phone numbers. Legitimate buyers had no problem calling me. Substitute letter "O" for zero "0", lower case "L" for "1", and spell out a number or two. For example: (5 O 2) l two 3 - 4 5 six 7.
