I recently listed my Triton Ti 29 Hardtail in the MTBR classifieds. I got an offer that was very close to asking price.

I posted the details in the 29er forum but basically the scam involves fake PayPal messages and overpayment for your item. The hook is to get you to Western Union the overpayment to release the funds.:madmax::madman::nono:

They have the PayPal logos and images just like the real thing.

I'm calling PayPal to report but want to give the heads up to forum members that scammers are working the classifieds.

Wow. The amount of work crooks put into their "profession". Surely they could do honest work instead.
you have no idea the magnitude of crime on the internet, and numbers of people working on committing fraud

quite literally, armies of them

That overpayment scam has been around for a long time.
