I have been contacted by a potential buyer of a machine that I have for sale at WOODWEB. They are from United Arab Emirates. Does anyone have any experience with this and know whether it is legitimate?

From contributor E:
Why do you think they may not be legitimate? I have sold machine parts outside of the US without any issue.
Expect the broker to not be interested in anything less than $10,000 and expect his cut to be 5 to 10%. If it is small items, (less than 10K) they should cover all brokering and you only need to get it to the nearest trucking center. They should also pay 100% before the items leave the US. My experience with UAE is they are honest businessmen with lots of cash.
