Terms of trade with dscotese

You must be the person sending the cash; Cash (USD) ONLY (NOT folded, stapled, rolled, or taped please!). NO Postal Money Orders allowed. NO third-party transactions allowed. Please also separate the denominations from each other and pack them in a way to keep them from mixing or getting bent. I use rubber bands. If you can't make the 2 hour deadline, just cancel the trade and make a new one when you can. If you don't want me to cancel, please give me an idea of when you'll send the tracking. There is no way for me distinguish between "coin lockers" and legitimate traders.

If you haven't traded with me before, please message me here with the return address that you will use on the package.

IMPORTANT!! Please include a note in the package that says "I'm username buying Monero from dscotese on (or, whichever you're using)." Also list the denominations (Ones, Fives, Tens, Twenties, Fifties, and Hundreds) and how many bills you've sent of that denomination.

Sometimes postal employees think that the PMB69 will cause a problem. Using c/o PMB69 often solves that.

Sometimes the Post Office is closed: (see Mailwerkz will also be closed on these days and often on a Friday and/or Saturday around the same time. Their website is but sometimes they don't update when they'll be closed, so if it says they'll be open, call them at 951.445.4330 to ask, and also let them know if their website is wrong. They're very nice people!

  1. Make the trade request.
  2. I recommend using a mylar bag to make it difficult for any scanner to tell postal employees that it contains cash. I use
  3. Mail your cash and the note to the address you'll get after making the trade request.
  4. Text me at (951)236-2719 or message me here on the site if you have any questions.

Please use a mailing method that has a tracking #. "Certified mail" is about $7 and has one. Priority express is faster and costs about $40.

How I mail cash: I use priority mail or priority express mail and include a signature if the seller will be available to sign for it. My mail place can sign for it. I usually divide the stack in half so I have two stacks of bills I can lay side by side like this: [ ][ ] I have a rubber band around them both when they are side by side, and I flip one over (verically) to twist the rubber band and hold them together in a squarish shape. The bulge they make in the envelope looks like a square instead of the U.S. currency rectangle, and it feels like a small book instead of a stack of cash. The cash goes in the mylar, and the mylar gets taped shut and goes into the free USPS Priority or Priority Express envelope. If you see room for improvement in this description, please let me know.
