THIEF = Logamito@aol.com aka. Adrian J. CroomeJekyll 2000

Adrian J. Croome is a thief. He was selling three brand new Cannondale Jekyll 2000 s on eBay, and I worked out a private deal with him for one of his bikes. He scammed me for $740 (first half of payment) through Western Union. He bought some extra time by saying that he was in a car accident, and although I was prompt to wire him the cash, he never delivered the bike. If you are buying from someone you don't know, ask for a scanned copy of their drivers license, and ask them technical questions about the bike that you are interested in. In retrospect, he met all of the characteristics: multiple bikes for sale in different sizes, 50-60% less than retail for a brand new bike, only willing to use Western Union, and advertising to an overseas market. Buyers beware!!!

His alleged contact info is:

8,000 posts on this sight about overseas sales and/or Western Union and another one gets reeled in. Sorry about your loss, but there is little sympathy.
I agree. There's even a header on this board about it...Dave Hickey
