Hmm...odd

I figured this was a scam right away, but then I noticed the guy has a lot of positive feedbacks. Then I see the no pickup writing so I can only assume he's going to charge $3000 to ship the bike. I emailed him to see how much it would cost to ship it to me so we'll find out.

Looks like Identity Theft to me. Look at his history. Never been a seller and he/she never dealt with anything even remotely related to a motorcycle.

Well he just told me he'll pay for the shipping charges. I'm waiting to see him explain why he's only listing it for 4k.

allready saw this on the XX Forum - only difference was that the bike was a Blackbird. The members also sent the seller an e-mail and discussed how these scams work. Enjoy

Here's the E-bay deal
XX for $3000 - no shipping

And here is the corresponding thread
WTF? 2003 XX for $3800

internet crime is getting huge.


FBI and ebay better work together to stop it. I know fbi has computer crime program. They prob need more funding to make it bigger. There has to be tons more stuff besides ebay.
