stupid scammers selling bikes

Of course the price was too good to be true so I clicked on the link to hear more.

Here is the best part, he also had the same add listed under the IL sales. Scroll down and look at the big picture of the bike.....when was the last time you saw palm trees and stucco homes with clay roofs in IL or IN. Hope nobody wired this "Anonymous" user money.............

Damn, is that why he wanted my SS# and bank routing number? He said he was going to cut me in for 40% of the transfer and addressed me as dear sir.

Do we really need to assume that something at that price is real??? If I didn't see that same price get used over n over again maybe I would pursue it more if it had a name,number and a reason of desperation explaining the rediculously low price.

I vow not to give up my winter time six pack for summer time 12 packs.

They use a simple formula in this type of situation -
