I was thinking about selling my 2005 888vf fork. I just decided to post it. I then get an e-mail from this guy saying that he would give me $1500us:eek::skep: :shocked: :yikes: . Now you can buy them for brand new for half of the price of that. Its either he has absolutely no clue about bikes. Or he another one of those idiots that scam. I definetly think its a scam. Just wanted to be safe and ask you guys.

it might be a scam
like others have said...if he sends you the legit money (and make sure you can spend that money before you continue) by all means give him the fork, but if he pulls ill clear the check when i get the fork, or uses some ******** escrow or paypal then dont...easy as that

The way to weed out these ASS ****ING SCAMMERS is to only accept pay-pay or cash money from one hand to the other.Its impossible to get scammed this way because.

1. you cant get ripped off using pay-pal
2. If he tries to scam you to your face while handing you money you can just beat the piss out of him, take his wallet, find his address and kill his family.


you see, pay-pal or cash money or no deal.

Hope this helps and good luck, N8

Email him back, I'm betting the next email will be in barely legible english saying he will send you cashiers check, for double the offer price, his agent will contact you about shipping and collecting the overage after you've cashed the check. It's a money laundering scam and you will get it almost immediatly after posting anything for sale thats worth more then a few hundred bucks. I can't count how many of these I've gotten.
