Watch out for Christian Lupen! Don't respond to below add.

You gotta love this exchange:

Christian,

Western Union has informed me that you have a been targeted as a person with
a "poor reputation". This means that they have received negative feedback
from people that have done business with you in the past.

Therefore, in order to complete a transaction with you, we must either use
an escrow service (Paypal), or you must ship me the bike prior to me paying
you.

Let me know how you would like to proceed if at all) as I am eager to
complete transaction, but am cousious of a potential problem.

I hope you understand and I look forwrd to hearing back from you

I had been looking at that ad, but it looked a bit too good to be true.

I sent an email seeing if he'd be willing to use an escrow service, but I haven't heard back. If I do, I'll ignore it either way.

Thanks for the posting!
C'mon you guys!!!!! Spell it out, it's a S-C-A-M! Wake up!davet

No one is going to sell a $4700 bike for $1800 on some bike classified ad. With that Trek being a pretty hot seller, if he was legitimate, he would have sold it instantly for that price. Hell the dealer would have bought it back at that price.
