I would say it is possible if this was an employee at a shop, but they would have to pay 2000+ for it.
I doubt they even have the bike nmandy02

It would make sence, because you have to be placed on the pre-approved bidder list, so the person bidding obviously would have to have some connection with the seller. It seems like the bike is just a fake product, there is no way someone would bid on that, plus the seller left no info, or shipping cost.

looks like the seller got caught by the rightful owner, at least he claimed to be. Take a look a the scam item and then the updated sellers feedback. Don't know how to put in a direct link so I'll just paste the URL.

They make it so hard to get through. I tried to warn them on one fraud auction and got an automated response two day later. The response was like they never read my e-mail. You would think that a business that big would have better support. They just want their commission and screw the guy that gets the sh*t end of the stick in a fraudulent auction.
I agree, yetCrankist

no longer have the urge to contact these morons who bid - I've enjoyed a fundamental shift in my thinking on this matter, I'm a free man!
No FB, no good info, bidders ident hidden - really, seller and auction "winner" are a heavenly marriage.
