The guy told me he was gonna buy my bike. Low balled me for a deal. Had verbal agreement two weeks ago, lots of emails stating the fact, said he put the check in the mail a week ago. I pulled the ad thinking it was sold. I emailed him wondering where the check was today. emailed back saying his "financial situation changed" and bailed out. Obviously he never sent the check. I know this isn't necessary illegal. but it sure shows how irresponsable and jerky some people can be. Watch out.

I agree with you, guys that promises to buy then bails out
is like riding a metric century on a Huffy.

He did the same thing to me. Stay away from this guy. He called me several time to make arrangements to buy the bike. Now SIX weeks later and various unreplied emails, and four or five phone calls later he tells me that he can't afford to do anything at this time. After making other arrangements and promises of several checks that he said he had already sent out buy obviously never sent. I don't understand why someone would waste our time with these kinds of actions or shading intentions. Watch Out for sure. Do not waste your time with him!
