    Wow what a suprise

    Dumb people,

    They want Euro's, the item is located in China and they only take Western Union, and you think this is a scam. You just want to win it yourself. It is just a really good deal. So disregard all of the warnings posted in red on the classified section of MTBR and place a bid. Just kidding. All of the overseas stuff is a little suspicious.

    The guy could have lifted it from the plant (mabey an employee who needs extra $$), and is selling on ebay????

    More than likely not, but who knows???? I wouldn't put my $ on it...

    if it looks like fish, smells like fish, and tastes like fish.....

    When they don't offer paypal, then it is definitely shady otherwise you could risk it and have paypal fix ****

    Look at the previous items sold. Nothing even closely related to a bike there, which is the first give away. The account has been stolen in a phishing scam, and is now being used to scam people. I just wish there was a report scam button on Ebay.

    They've got a whole boatload of bike listed in their other items section. A bunch of the previous items sold have been removed by Ebay with a warning not to pay by wire transfer. Maybe the guy bought a cargo container full of bikes, like just out of the blue.
    Or better yet got a deal on unclaimed freight, lol. Jeez I wish I could get a legit deal like that on a couple of IH Sundays, lol.

    No it is an actual account.....doubt it is hijacked. Looked at the other auctions that he had. Check out all the feedback he has recieved. All on the same date. Pictures of random items with no descriptions.....just "??????".

    Most of the buyers/others that have left feedback are no longer registered.

    IT is just one large circle jerk. He uses a bunch of different accounts and creates fake auctions, fake feedback to make himself look like a legit seller.

    I say fraud.

    The warning is a general warning that ebay puts on all auctions that get shut down.
