There's an auction for a Schwinn 4 banger. The seller has a 100% feedback rating since april 2005. 2/3 of his transactions have been from a seller named Sasquach3737. That part I understand - high risk. But if you see what Sasquach3737 is actually selling, it has been about 455 pennies, one at a time since March 05.

So is this an "elaborate" set up in advance for the one big take? My assumtion is Sasquach3737 is the main I.D. and he creates a few new ones here and there to steal money then, closes the new accounts and so on. Or maybe I watch too much T.V.

Here's the link anyway.

Report it

I'd report it to ebay. Give them the item number and explain the situation and they will investigate it and shut it down. I do this frequently, as I'm looking for a good deal on a DEAN hardtail to build up as a back up bike. About once a month or so a guy puts up the same ad for DEAN bikes all sizes all flavors, well since I ride for them, I called them up and they have never sold bikes on ebay and have never heard of this "bike shop". When the ads show up, I report them, and within a day they are gone.

It's funny for a older Bike company that has been bought out... ala Schwinn... and not much internet hype about those old bikes anymore (homegrowns, 4 Bangers, Straight 6 & 8's..) the still get some good money for nice ones!

I've been looking for a large 4 banger frameset since I sold my Homegrown Bass Boat Blue Dually... wish I still had it - but I know someday that sweet bass boat 4 banger will fall in my lap... or a straight 6 if I have too...lol

Good luck finding one!
