    After several consideration over the advert placed on the website, my client who has really shown interest in it and would want to issue the payment.

    But before I proceed on this transaction I will like to ask some question as follows.

    1. Is the condition of the MOTORCYCLE what you have describe it to be ?

    3. Do you accept a certified check as a mode of payment ?


    4,Can the picture send to me via email for proper view?


    Also I would like to restate clearly that this item will be shipped to Australia and I have a shipping agent who would take good care of this. You are to cash the Check you will recieve and deduct the funds for the sales of your item and please have the excess funds sent to the shipping agent in order to schedule the pick up of the item.

    All neccesary transfer papers will be dully signed by the shipper on behalf of my client when the shipping agents comes for the pick up of the item .

    Bob.....isn't that how everyone tries to purchase an old motorcycle? I responded to an auto type trader add awhile back on an unbelievably cheap knuckle, just to see what came back. According to the e-mail I received, I could get a cherry '46 shipped to me from Texas for $5800. That price included trucking! The single picture that was sent of the bike was a pic I'd seen sell on e-bay a few months before! They didn't even crop the little e-bay symbol out! There's all kinds out there........

    I got the same email today myself. The guy who sent it has no clue even whan an Antique Motorcycle is. It isn't just Antique Motorcycles. I have a friend who collects, buys, sells and trades high end Pool Cues. He gets the same emails from the chat line he monitors and advertises on.

    It never ceases to amaze me how much effort some crooks will put into a larcenous deal. You could probably do better at a 9 to 5 job, but I guess that's not the point. For some people being evil is what it's all about.

    I remember a few years ago seeing a special on TV about all this crap. They were showing some third world country in Africa where some of this stuff originates. There was a mud hut with dirt floors that had numerous computers in one room if that is what you might call it? The local natives of this country reported to work at this hut daily. Their full time job was nothing more than phishing the internet with these emails hoping they would catch someone who was gullable enough to let themselves be scammed. And it happens day in and day out. Some of these countries have no economy, no jobs, no nothing. Nail some person who does not know better for a couple a hundred or a few thousand bucks and it is like one of us hitting the lottery for a hundrerd grand. Jp

    Hello, My name is Sir Reilly Philips. While on safari I happened to come across a couriers pack lying on the jungle floor. Upon inspection I found this letter address to you. If you fall for this you are one dumb ****! Mean while back at the trailer park Jim Bob hits the frig for another brewski between Jerry Springer reruns. He rests ashored that the BA’s promise to reopen the Delphi points plant is a shore thing. Bob L

    Dear Sir Reilly,

    That was a self-addressed envelope....... is there anyway you could send me the whole courier pack? The pack is so valuable to me that if you do manage to return it safely I will send you 1 Beeelion dollars! I will do this via a bank wire transfer and will need your full name, social insurance number and the guarantee of your first born........

    Regards and hope to hear from you soon........

    Sheister.

    I have recently found several rip off listings on Craigs List. If it sounds too good, it is. Like it says on ebay, NEVER use moneygram, or western union. That is like sending cash. Also, if they mention using a certified agent to handle it, run away. Fast!
