    Trek Session 8 Scam!!!

    Just want to send a tip out to anyone who may be in the hunt for a 2011 Trek Session 8 on Ebay or Craigslist. This bike seems to be listed in a couple different places that I have found. Who knows how many other listings are out there?! Beware! Looks like a scam to me!

    Someone put the word out on Ridemonkey and Pinkbike too. We can help keep the community safe.

    the usual way these scams operate: a) someone legit posts an ad on site X b) some scammer copies the photos and description on to site Y, and posts a low price that is too good to be true.

    Yup, when I was looking to buy a used Nomad I found one on eBay (legit ad) being sold from the US, for, well, outside of my pricerange, but found a seller on PinkBike with the same pictures and description, being sold from Canada for about 1/4 the price.
    The ad on eBay you posted is from the UK, and the CL ad is from Cleveland.....weird.

    The other thing of interest is the Ebay ad...the lister has zero feedback points and his ID is "GARD.D." I think that's a kinda ironic username (GUARDED) for what could potentially be a fraudulent listing. Nice play on words and probably somebody's bank account. Looks like he has had a couple offers too.
