Thanks for the "heads up".
I got an email too, replied stating didn't know the person purporting to have what I am looking for was selling a bike. I checked out sender but couldn't find any info.
Am in UK anyway so not going to buy from abroad.
Unfortunately these arses put that many emails out I am sure they catch a few.
ignore some of my classifieds I'm hunting wabbits!
On a Positive note. Having recently experienced scammers using both my credit card and my PayPal account which were both closed now.
I have continued to both buy and sell XS parts even last week sending and receiving CASH in a envelope and card.
Yup Lol Cash in the mail.. from Canada even.
XS.com members Motorcyclists continue to look out for each other! and continue to not disappoint in the trusting either. Thank you and
Keep it up ! -RT
Just had a wee think about this and why I was sent an offer 'to contact someone'. They must target people who live a distance away from the fictitious person supposedly selling the items you are after, for example; it was a bike I am looking for, so, any bike within a reasonable distance I am going to want to go and have a look at.
I can understand however, people, not a great distance away from the fictitious seller, wanting to buy and pay for smaller items and have them posted, which may be cheaper rather than have to take time and expense to travel.
It would be very easy to get caught out, and I would imagine we all could get caught out as they seem to be getting more and more sophisticated.
In the UK you usually get a couple of calls a day from ladies and gentlemen with Asian accents telling you Amazon are going to charge you an exorbitant amount for something and to call a number or you have been in a car crash or some other crap.
I did get a call the other day to say my washing machine needed new parts as their system showed it's serial number as one which did, they asked me the name of the washing machine to which I replied 'Helen', my wife was not amused .
They are all chancing B**t^%*s and I hope they get what is coming to them..... soon!
Thanks for the heads up. Appreciated
