I need advise on selling bike

Recommended Posts

I received the offer by email, but I am a little weary of his terms of the transaction. Does this sound like it's on the up-and-up?

Dude comon...... Did you really think that was a legit deal?? The only thing you need to send that guy is a letter bomb.

let me guess.....your bike is on craigslist? That is the oldest scam and I don't know how anyone can believe that. Tell him to send you $1,000,000.00 and you will throw in a tank full of gas.

Bigtime scam.

Sell locally to people you can meet face to face, and accept only cash.

And get the buyer to sign a receipt that states the price and indicates that it is SOLD AS IS, NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES> That will prevent the buyer from filing a claim later which alleges that you made false representations about the bike.

here is the deal on this. An out of country check takes a month to clear. YOu think he paid you 9k and you are super happy and send you bike out, The bank gives you the 9k, a month later the check bounces and they bank comes after YOU for the money back. Now you are out 9k and a bike! that is how they scam you!

Yep and as a general rule, meet them somewhere besides your home to show the bike.

Wow your real sketchy aren’t you? You wont even let them come to your house? Not a bad idea but I have never had a problem with people coming over.

I had a friend get the same offer on an old truck he was selling. He (being an idiot) sold it thinking it was a sweet deal...He ended up loosing the truck and the extra money he sent back to the buyer. The check took over a month to finally bounce and the bank came asking for the total amount.

DON'T DO IT...YOU'LL REGRET IT FOR SURE.:censored:
