Yes. That's why cash is king. However, a wire transfer is completely safe. Every fortune-500 company does them. You can also transfer the funds at your bank. Once the money's in the bank, there is no claiming the watch/property is faulty. Once the money is yours, it's yours. Obviously, completely avoid PayPal. That's why it's good for the buyer to have the watch validated/authenticated at an authorized dealer and you can even make the cash transfer at the jewelry shop. If you can't tell if 100 Dollar bills are real, you shouldn't carry cash.
