    Sounds too good to be true.

    Since you are in Singapore maybe you can tell me if yopisuyudi.com is a real company.
    They have some deals that look too good to be true also.
    They also have something against salesgirls.

    "We don't own a physical shop, don't own a sales or pickup center, don't hire any salesgirl. Due to this , we sometimes can sell cheaper than physical shops simply because we can save money on paying rental, electricity bill , salesgirl's salary and etc. We started in Jan 2006, and the response has been growing in line with Indonesia growing netizens and broadband. Until 2008, we have sold to more than 1,000 customers in and outside Indonesia . we have more than 200 items at this time in our webstore, our current product lines are mainly Sport and Health products. Our Believe We believe Internet shopping is very convenient and cost saving to you. Not only you can sometimes buy at lower price, you can also save money on petrol and parking fee. You will be free from traffic jam hassle, snatch thieves and pick pocketing threats. Our Vision We want to be a one of the largest internet shopping business in the world"

    I hate it when someone steals my snatch by the way.

    That mission statement or whatever that was, is a huge red flag. Scammers strangely tend to have the same broken English style to them, be it 419scams or whatever.

    Simple, if it sounds too good to be true, walk away..

    Actually, broken English just means they speak another language. Trust me, there are plenty of scammers that have perfect English.

    That guy probably has some bank and I am just a mechanic in the states.
    Mr. Doom is a fictional character created by Bill Hicks for his movie "Ninja Bachelor Party" and is too busy reforming Robitussin addicts to sell bikes online.

    I've been working in Houston, Tx as a hot shot courier driver for years and I know every inch of downtown. 315 Capitol St does not have a bike shop located anywhere near it. In fact it's called Bayou Place which includes a few restaurants and a movie theatre. No retail stores nor office space. As mentioned earlier 503 is not a Houston area code. 281, 713, and 832 are the only area codes for Houston. This guy is a fake!
