as some of you would've seen i'd advertised my shitheap gpx on both netrider and ebay leaving my phone number in the description for people to contact me as my internet connection at home is generally ratshit so i dont bother with going online much anymore - i get a message from a guy asking how much i want to unlist the bike and sell it and he asks to reply via e-mail From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: GPX 250 Date: Wed, 30 Nov 2011 18:22:03 -0800 Thanks for getting back to me on here,i will take it for $1300 including PayPal surcharges since i am interested in the immediate purchase.I just moved to the Malaysia,where this is needed and i will be making use of a shipping company to have this picked up from you and have it delivered to me.Further arrangements will be made with you in regards to the pickup once i have paid you. I would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) too since i won't be able to see this in person,what's the PayPal email to send funds to in order for me to pay you ASAP. I hope to read from you soon. Thanks and then received this after apologising for taking so long in the reply and kind of being evasive in my reply yet still stupid enough to be keen on this being legit at the time ... Don't worry about the pick up,my shipping agent will be coming to pick it up.I'll like you to send me your address so that my shipping agent can figure it out and come for the pick up and other necessary things....more so,send me your PayPal details(PayPal email) so i can pay in. Await your response. so after a call to one or two people and they are kind of under the general impression i am that it's paypal and is safe permitting i get the money first before i cough up the wheels....and then i call a old netrider member friend mr loki of which i hear abruptly thru the phone "ohhh shit no no no don't you dare **** with that bro it's a scam" and proceeded to explain how they use stolen credit cards to make the purchase then once the bike is picked up and not long after the card is found to be stolen the amount placed in my account considered stolen funds would be deducted from my account so seller beware...figured i'd put this up as my personal experience and something for people to keep an eye out for....granted most of you aren't as mind numbingly stupid as i am but it's still good to get it out there and known.
