Was scanning the Buy & Sell and thought that this ad was interesting (yet obviously very flawed) so I fired off an email to him to see what kind of response I'd get.
My original message:
"Are you selling the bike, or the paint job? If you are selling the bike, please reply - thanks."
Got this (below) response this morning - smells like your typical scam...
Thank you for your interest regarding my bike. Here are the details that you have to know about this deal. Firstly, I have to let you know that I am located in Slovakia along with the bike. I am trying to make a new life here because my wife wants to be closer to her family.
The bike is presenting in a very good condition, never involved in accidents, no need for additional repairs. It has always been garage kept. It comes with all the documents needed for registration, it has a clear title and it can be anytime registered into your name without a problem. The original receipt and all remained warranty information packet with enrollment number is included for you. If necessary I will even assist you in getting warranty help, most people just dump it on you with a useless warranty.
The price I want to obtain for it is $ 2,400 and if you agree with it we can start to complete the transaction. I realize that is a cheap price for such a product but my special situation makes me do things that I wouldn’t do in normal circumstances and believe me it is not easy at all for me to sell a thing which was one of my dreams during last years. I've wanted to register the bike here and keep it for me. Unfortunately import taxes and european regulations made me change my mind. Now I am trying to sell it back for such a low price because next week I have a deadline term for paying those taxes.
If you are serious interested please let me know as soon as possible so we can move forward with this deal. Hope to hear from you soon.
WTF? Slovakia? you REALLY think those pics are from Slovakia? Gimme a break... ugh... and the heart wrenching 'make a new life for my family' line makes me ill...
It's typical of the many B&S scam ads pointed out before, but I've been feelin' crappy from all this shitty weather and had to vent...
