You can see the pics of my bike using the following link:
The bike is presently stored at a shipping company in Italy waiting for a buyer. I want to use an escrow service and I am willing to pay the shipping and insurance fees.
If you are SERIOUSLY interested reply ASAP as I am overwhelmed with offers (please don't waste my time).
Have a great day and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
so then i ask the guy if the funds are canadian and how much the shipping is because quite frankly is sounds TGTBT
and he sends this:
First of all, I want to clarify something: These are my terms and this is the ONLY way I will do business.
Here is how I want to close this deal, in the best and safest way for the both of us: for shipping we will use World Cargo Express, a local shipping company here. I have used them in the past and I am fully satisfied with their service. I will store the bike under your name and address, also the title and all documents I have, and you will receive a tracking number and all the storage details. Once they contact you and you confirm that the bike is indeed there, I want a downpayment of 2,000.00 USD USD transferred to the third party who will intermediate out transaction, which is Square Trade. SquareTrade will insure the funds and hold them until you receive and inspect the bike. Once the transfer is made and SquareTrade confirms me that the funds are secured with them, I will instruct the shipping company to proceed with the delivery process. Please don`t feel offended in any way, you must understand that I am only requesting this downpayment secured with SquareTrade so I can feel confident enough about sending you the bike. Shipping will take approximately 7 working days, and will be done door-to-door, to your exact location, so you will not have to pick the bike up yourself. All shipping fees will be paid by me as agreed. Once you receive the bike, I will allow you 72 Hrs for inspecting it. And if you find it unsatisfactory in any way other than described, I agree to have it shipped back on my expense, and SquareTrade will fully refund the payment. The downpayment of 2,000.00 USD USD will ONLY be realeased to me after you have the bike there and you instruct SquareTrade to give me the money. Also, you will have to send me the rest of the payment at that moment. So if you agree with my terms above, I see no reason for which we shouldn`t complete the transaction as soon as possible. Please reply with your full name and address where you want the bike shipped, so I can proceed and store it at the shipping company for you. I also need your details so I can forward them to SquareTrade and start the process.
what do you guys think...smells a little too fishy for me, I think im gonna pass it u p although it looks like a fun bike.
