How can you recognize a scam?

How can you recognize a scam? We were offered full asking price, no contingencies by people who have never even been to see the business or ask to see any paperwork. And, it supposedly it's a cash offer.

You have the right to be suspiscious. But the key is to question, without insulting them and turning them off! Ask for references; ask for the name of the bank; ask for them to show you a copy of their bank account that shows they have that much on deposit. Do not assume that someone coming from BizBuySell is automatically for real.
