Ok so i bid and won this auction even though the seller has 0 feedback
and is brand new (scary already) because it says in his profile that he
was located in canada.
So i will just copy and paste the emails that have gone back and forth
and let you decide if this is borderline fraud or not.
his first email to me
Like you see in the picture the bike is in excellent condition.The title
is clear and i`m the owner of the bike.The bike is in perfect working
condition. It has only 310 miles.Curently i`m in USA with some bussines.The
bike is in Chicago and is ready to ship.I will pay all the shipping
taxes and insurance.The buy it now price is US$3600. If you want to
start the deal you will have to wire me firstĀ US$1300 to my full name
and address via MoneyGram.After you make the payment the bike will be
shipped to you and you will receive it in 2 days.After you will receive
the bike you will have 1 week to inspect it and to wire me the rest of
the money.The bike will be insured against damages, and I will pay 100%
for 1-2 days shipping so you can have it as soon as posible.You will
receive the title and a bill of sale with the bike.
Let me know if you are interested.
Reply me ASAP.
thanks for the prompt reply, i am very eager to take possesion of what i
won, unfortunately there are a few problems. As you are a new member
as of 6 days ago, are selling a bike for half of its MSRP, are offering
to ship it for free (who ships in 2 days?) and are asking for a
untraceable way of sending money i propose this.
A: We will work through escrow.com, i send them the money, they confirm
it to you and you send the product, as soon as product is recieved you
B: You provide me with a secure pick up location, and i will pick it up,
it has to be in canada, in your username it says you are from meadow
lake SK, i can pick it up there, or anywhere close to there and trailer
it back here. I will pay you cash upon pickup.
Let me know how this will work
sir i am located in USA (NY) and the bike is in Chicago !!
i don't use escrow !
reply me soon
Why dont you use escrow?
who does 2 day shipping, how much does it cost, and why will you do it
you realize this sounds like a total scam right?
sir i am not a scammer ...i accept only MoneyGram beacuse my company
have contract with MoneyGram...I am very sorry.
What is your company? who is doing the 1-2 day shipping? how much will
it cost? why dont you do escrow? what garauntee do i have that you wont
just dissapear with my money?
your not making me feel very safe about this.

legally liable to provide said service, where is my motorcycle.
