    I've exchanged about 4 emails with the "suspected buyer" and it's totally a joke. First they want to issue a us check, then I tell them my bank will hold if for 45 days, so they offer to pay with Canadian funds check, plus pay around $1500 for shipping!! what a joke, my bike is not a special edition or anything like that, you can find a lot of them all over the place. Why would someone from London want my bike so bad, having not even seen it in person??

    this type of thing has been happening in the 4x4 scene for years and still some people are taken by this. I am also with the toyota landcruiser association and we see emails like this at least 5 times a month. I have over the past 4 years received 120+ emails about my truck. Just becareful and do not email these people back because as soon as you do they see you have a valid email address and then spam the shit out of it.
