This is an obvious scam, posted on 4/05/03. Poster wants $1,900 for a c40 with record. Obviously too good to be true. exact same description of bike, this one sold for $4,750. Emailed seller wants moneygram payment- same as western union. He says he is in california wants funds sent to St Louis, Missouri. Hopefully ad will be removed.

Assuming this was too good to be true, I emailed the seller and was told he is in Europe and needs the money sent there. Don't touch this one folks.

Dear Sir,

I saw the escrow web page and i don't know...
I'm selling the bike because i need some money and i'm in Europe at this moment
I realy don't know...
Can't you make the payment through the MoneyGram Service?
I also have other customers and if they will accept MoneyGram for payment then i
will make the deal with one of them and if not then i think i will make the deal
with you but i don't know for sure.

Kindly regards and reply soon.
Thank you for your time.

Hey, i was stupid enough to go through with this same ad, in retrospect it was pretty dumb, but i thought i was getting a C-40 frame for a decent price. Is there anything i can do to investigate the guys who are putting these ads up?
