He says a friend just gave it to him!!!! Should it be reported to e-bay?

I did exactly that and he replied...fasteddie

that he was actually in London now and not CA as stated in the listing, so it would have to be shipped. It would be interesting to have another person email him, indicate they "heard" he was in England, tell him they were also in that country and see what his response is. I sure hope the high bidder isn't really legit and doesn't fall for this scam. It's just seems so obvious, with so many red flags on the product, the seller, feedback, etc.....

And asked if he would ship to England. I told him I live in London and am interested in his bike, but I know some sellers in the States don't like to ship overseas and deal with customs.

I will let you know what he says in his reply.

it's over $2000, I hope some poor SOB doesn't pay him. nmDave Hickey

Ask him what the serial number is on the framespookyload

Then write back and tell him that you had that frame stolen. Ask him where you can have the police come pick up your bike at, then see how long the auction stays up!!
I kept an eye on it. Check out the bid history!!High Gear

I even looked up his feedback, that was privet too! I can't believe e-bay would let something happen like this. I guess they can't police every auction.
