MY BIKE LIVES - being used in a ebay scam again

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Takamii, Oct 3, 2010.

  1. Okay - many of you remember my bike ( 1999 R1)

    you also know that it was sold then stolen from new owner and then recovered and auctioned as a repairable write off.

    You also know it was sold once to a guy who got ripped off and scammed as they used the pictures in an advert on gum tree in Melbourne and the guys money ( $3700 ) went to a scammer in UK via western union

    Well the scam is happening again on ebay and they are using the same pictures of my bike as well as my exact wording in the advert - basically they are running my advert again


    I have reported it to ebay as "Stolen goods "
  2. I think we should all send questions and ask stuff about it see what the scammer replies with
  3. $90,000 BID ANYONE? hehehehe

  7. You must just troll the net looking for your bike ML :p.
    I wouldnt donkey bid, never know whether ebay will listen or not (95% not).
  8. I sent an email

    HI there

    I have a few questions

    Has this bike ever been dropped or in an accident ?
    Are the carbies re-jetted to match the exhaust ?
    Does it have an aftermarket air filter ?
    Can you tell me what city you are in so I can see and inspect the bike.
    Thank you

    Maybe we should all SPAM this guy with nonsense questions

    and Messy -- I was looking on ebay for a replacement R1 as off my restrictions in 17 days
  9. jjust sent them this question

    Hi, I'm very interested in your bike. Can you please let me know if there is any finance owing on the bike and has the bike ever been involved in an accident.
    Can you also give me the rego number or VIN number so I can do an online check.
    Where are you located??

    Lets see what they come back with.

    Another question I want to ask

    Is this Casey Stoners old bike ?
