    Nice Heritage for 4800.00. I sent an email, got a reply, then replied back. I do not have a brother in Montana.

    Hey,

    Perfect. I have a brother that lives in Great Falls. Can I have him check it out and pick it up, if it looks good. Save you the shipping problem.

    Thanks

    Has anyone sent this scam alert to RichardS ? I think he & others were trying to compile a list of scammers trying to sell bikes, to make sure no one on the forum got burnt on a bad deal

    I believe what RichardS had polled was not a list of scammers, but a network of forum members that were willing to inspect a bike for sale in thier area for members that were far away.
    I think we dubbed the Craigslist scams "The Betty", as that was the name used several times. It has gone to a new low pretending to be a armed forces member.:newsmile055:

    I hate these scams too. I hate to admit it, but a few years ago I almost fell for one of these on eBay. I was really close to sending the money. Bad on me!!!:newsmile08:


    This one is even worse posing as an American Soldier.:bigsmiley19:

    The guy I bought my bike from got burned before he sold it to me. He seemed like a really decent guy, but needed to sell his ride for financial reasons. Be careful about wanting something too much.

    If you google these scam adds there is some really good advice on how to spot, avoid or report them. I found out that not all too good to be through deals are scams. 08 dakota, 4X4 club cab 8cyl auto, loaded low milage must sell 4,000 firm. I laughed at it, but now my buddie is driving it.A Widow called and got balance owing and sold for that amount.
