you may have read on ebay about an online scam but ive recently found it on other sites. an overseas seller offers a bike (a blue r1 in this case) below market price and later claims that he is overseas and that the bike is in custody of a delivery company. they say that payment to the company is required prior to delivery and that company will confirm the bikes status, condition and delivery date on the phone. they claim that you can be fully refunded if the bike is not to your satisfaction on delivery. ofcorse there is no bike or company at all and you have just given out your credit card details to a complete stranger. you would have to be pretty dum to fall for this and pay for something without seeing it in person, but it did take up a fair slice of my time and energy. i emailed them leaving my phone number and couldnt believe my luck. (ive been looking for a used bike for a couple of weeks) about an hour after i emailed them i got an sms saying no worries, come and see the bike. a 2 hour drive later i get to the address. WTF. this is a different bike. the sms i got was from another seller i had emailed a week prior. lol. the bike i was now standing in front of was in an absolute mess of a condition. dissappiontment plus!! then to top the day off driving on unfarmiliar roads on my way home, i overtake a bunch of cars that were slowing down for no apparent reason to look back in my rear view mirror and see 3 asshat boxes pointing at me. so ive got a speeding fine to look forward to as well. i guess the moral of the story is that if you see something too good to be true then it probably is eh?
