[email protected] I emailed her/him and received this back: Hello, The bike is located in Philadelphia, PA and I am selling it at this price ($7640) because i just finished the divorce with my husband. The divorce is finished and I own this bike. I work as a dealer on a cruise ship and i want to sell it because I need money for other things. This bike is in excellent working condition, no scratches, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used, in 100% working and looking conditions and comes with a clear title ready for transfer. From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using eBay services. Since i am working most of my time, and divorced I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for me and you to be 100% protected. The final price that I want for this bike is $7640. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive payment and shipping details from them. I will wait your answer very soon only if you are interested to buy because i don’t have any free time to waste. Best Regards, Michelle Wise I said: You do realize that the buyer protection program only works if the motorcycle is a sold item through ebay. You will need to list the motorcycle on ebay for sale. Also, have you checked to see how much shipping and insurance would be on a motorcycle from PA to other states? I imagine this will be quite expensive and you are already taking quite a hit on the amount you are selling the bike for. It sounds like you are a really busy person. Sorry to hear about the divorce. Also, I dont know how the title transfer works between individuals in different states, do you? He/She replied with: Hi, year :2006 – VIN: 1HD1BXB146Y027434 – 1066 miles – Engine size 1550 cc s870.photobucket.com/albums/ab270/hd1231/ The bike is already at the shipping company in Philadelphia, PA sealed and ready to be shipped. I’m very busy with my job so this is the reason why I chose to sell my bike over the internet. I have a contract with eBay so this deal must go through them. According with the eBay you have 5 days from the time you will receive the bike to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. Here is how it will work: First of all I will need the following details from you: full name and full shipping address; After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to eBay so they will process your info, and they will send you the invoice. In the invoice you will receive the details on how to make a refundable payment. eBay will contact me and release the shipping to you. After you receive the bike you will have 5 days to test it, verify and do whatever you need to the bike. If you decide to keep it, then I will receive the payment from eBay . If you will decide that you will not buy the bike, eBay will refund the money and I will have the shipping company come down to pick up my bike.Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them. I look forward to hear from you. Best Regards, Michelle Then I googled the VIN and found the entries on Ripoff Scams.
