Indeed, this is true.  I'm pretty sure neighbor paid by personal check.  I
would not pay with folding green, it's too risky, as you say.

Perhaps I misunderstood the original post? Most people arrange big loans
for large expenditures, hardly anyone saves up in advance.   Pity.

Some years back I knew a doctor who put a brand new Ford Expedition on his
credit card - his other car had fallen apart during vacation and he was
disgusted, didn't want to see it again. Funny.  Dealership there had
difficulties with that as well.  :D
