Should you sell digital files? (instead prints)

Hi all.

Many people ask to the photographer his digital files (i.e. sent via e-mail) instead prints (because the shipping cost is too expensive etc.).

Sale of digital files is an established practice now, and many photographers do it. I think releasing photos in digital form is fraught with danger... What do you think about it?

In the last month two people asked me to buy my photos. This request was refused by me because they asked me the file, and I think if I send the file they can sell my photo or to use it in many different ways...
What are your recommendations about this problem?
