C40HP on Ebay(8 posts)

C40HP on EbayVelojon

I'd be beware of this seller on Ebay (Item # 271548533). He will only ship the frame (from Spain) once paid by Western Union wire transfer. He won't do a UPS or FEDEX COD transaction
Scam. (nm)Alexx

to think they're going to actually get a bike. That one is just sad.

Can someone registered with eBay not ask him the usuall questions about size etc and catch him out?

I did. I fact I asked him if he could build a bike with Campy Record/Ksyrium. He immediately emailed me back and said he'd sell me the built bike for 2500 Euros (about $2500). I told him I'd be in Europe next week and would bring the money/pick it up from him then, but he said Western Union wire transfer was the only way he'd deal. This is a scam and I'm going to try and warn the others. Hopefully the winning bidder will realize this and not actually wire money.

The bike was sold to a guy named "c40dreamin " for US $2,225.00.

There's a sucker born every minute.

I wrote the guy that bought the bike to warn him about a possible scam. He emailed me back that he and others had already lost money to the "seller" on other bikes, so they now outbid everybody else whenever this guy tries to sell another item to protect other potential buyers. Pretty cool.
