Well guy's what do you think should I just jump right into this sale Yeah right I guess that's what you get from Craigs list I sure would like to seel my 95 but I dont think I want to give it away.

I am writing in respect of your advert posted on Craiglist.com. l would like to know if the Motorbike is still available for sale, the condition, and the method of payment. Also I’ll be contacting a shipping agent who will be handling the shipment effectively after purchase. Do not expect me to send you Western Union or any cash transfers, otherwise my method of payment shall be issueing a certified local bank cheque for your bank to endorse and item will be picked up after payment has been cleared by your bank. I am presently here in Malaysia and my phone number here is +601 0212 8449
Your earliest response to this mail will be well appreciated as I would like to make arrangement for payment ASAP.
Looking forward,
M Salim

More then likely the check will be bogus. But as long as you stipulate that you will hold the MC until the check clears the bank, what's the harm in playing along??

Just don't give them any account numbers, SS# etc... Full name and mailing address only. If you want to roll the dice...

Good luck!

Safe & happy riding! :action:

The fee for that "check" reverting to your bank will not be pleasant. I would forgo that experience.

That's exactly what I thought too but I am sure that they sometimes get a sucker.

NO WAY!!! Everytime I advertise I get something similar to this. It doesn't matter what it is. Don't do it.

Hmm, perhaps you should reply that you've just recently been notified that you've won the Nigerian lottery, but are unable to collectthe $5,000,000due to certain citizenship and tax restrictions.



You could then offer him your bike AND you rights to your Nigerianlottery proceeds for roughly $50,000 more than the price that you are asking for your bike... Once his funds have fully cleared any/all banks, you would be happy to discuss shipping of his purchases.

It's bait.

I posted the ad

"If you know motorcycles then you know exactly what kind of treasure I am selling".
