Been getting 'inquiries' about a bike I have for sale. Can't belive the people who write this crap are for real. Doesn't quite fit the mold of some of the other fraud's mentioned, but come-on... Ireland isn't in the UK, and "Campbridge" (spelled wrong), certainly ain't in Ireland. And who on earth is even going to want to try to get someone to ship a 300 dollar bike internationally...
