|These pictures have been taken off of a website, it was on here in the past... but this time someone is bidding on the bike, someone notify ebay (I dont know how to), I'm about 99% sure this is a scam, registered in canada, no feedback, and im sure you'll agree if you've seen the pictures in the past. Just wanted to help.

|There is so much of this going on with bikes lately. I think its the same guy who keeps changing his identity. Bottom line is, if you are going to bid on E-Bay, especially with this kind of money, you are a fool to do so with someone who has NO FEEDBACK. If they get taken because they are greedy, and not being careful, then they are in for a painful lesson!|

|Why would someone in Spain register in Canada? Of course this makes no sense and is bogus.
I have in the past sent e-mails to E-bay about this kind of stuff. They respond saying e-bay is safe, everything is ok....
Very frustrating. The old adage, Buyer beware is very appropriate for the current e-bay.

|Why not just email the potential victim? I have in the past alerting them to a possible ripoff. About a month ago a guy was using pictures off a web site that I frequent to rip people off.|

|Thats right the same bike being sold by 4 different sellers! This scam artist lists the same items several times a week. Usually he has no feedback, sometimes he manages to steal someones ebay identity. One his sellers today is a stolen identity called snoopyspongebob12. If you check his other auctions he's also selling c40's, serotta's, litespeeds, Maverick's, Ellsworth, laptop computers, digital camera's. Over 300 items, worth over a million dollars!!!!!!|| |
