Cash Deposit and rent payments

Posted by Rev. Marsh Hudson-Knapp on March 02, 2000 at 00:58:20:

My daughter is about to rent an apt. in Brooklyn. The landlord wants a $4,000 deposit all in cash, and monthly rent in cash. Money orders or bank checks are not accepable. Is this a standard procedure? It makes us nervous. How do we evaluate the risk of this transaction? For us Vermont people that's a lot of cash to give someone you don't know. Thanks for oyur advice.
