Someone posted this ridiculous listing for the "Ironman Triathlon Bike" and I followed up with questions to the seller. Here's the email exchange. What a snake! Feel free to let the boy have it now that you have his email addy. Details about the fraud can be accessed by the hyperlink at the bottom of the emails.

This is an ASR Maximum Performance Bycycle. It's basic retail is from 1500. to 2300. dollars Thanks for your interest.

Lets just say that anyone that outbids the current bid deserves the bike.

heck does this idot get a bid up to $600 on this piece of crap and I can't get 850 for a beautiful rigid ti mountain bike that I listed 2x!!! It's just not fair. It's ok I'd rather have someone buy it off the classifieds anyway.

Captain Justice is the high bidder. This bike will never be sold for $600. I emailed this guy and told him he was committing fraud and I was going to report him to Ebay. He sent back a very nasty email saying "go ahead and report me, I don't care". He'll gets what he deserves......
