    Specialized Bike Selling Scam?

    NEW 2013 SPECIALIZED S-WORKS STUMPJUMPER CARBON 29 SRAM - Buy and Sell and Review Mountain Bikes and Accessories

    I have found numerous ads like this in the MTBR Classified section. I have also seen these ads posted multiple places elsewhere.

    IMO,

    1. The prices are too good to be true
    2. The language/grammar resembles those emails that tell me I have a rich uncle in Nigeria that will give me 40 million if I send 10,000.
    3. 1 + 2 = Scam

    Are there moderators in this forum? Does anyone oversee the classified section?

    The prices definitely seem too good to be true.

    Man - maybe that's why my legit ad for a SWORKS Stumpy is not getting any bites! It's XTR though!
