Looks like scam

Postby ogri211 » Sat Mar 31, 2018 9:35 pm

This bike has came up again https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SUZUKI-GT750 ... Swki1avTg8 The same Bike came up in Stirling just before Christmas and caused my pal to lose another bike as it was just down the road and we held off on a deal with a boy down south which we lost out on., We offered to come and see the bike with cash ,but the so called seller was reluctant to deal with us, refused to give us his phone number which is a but unusual when someone with good feedback that lives 30 miles away offers to come through with cash and a trailer that night. it is now for sale in Stranraer, with exactly the same wording and a new ebay user with 3 feedback both purchases from companies with high feedback IE: cheap sellers, When we asked him for his phone number he said he was too busy working he was too busy to even take a call, so beware if you buy it and he asks for a deposit, I would ask for a phone number. Here is the site where he got the pictures http://www.bikesrestored.com/13243/suzu ... 0a-1976-2/

They are popping up a dozen times a day now. I report every one I see but I'm bleeding worn out. Surely Ebay can design an algorithm that knocks these out before they are listed

Is it becoming that common? Damn, that sucks. I use eBay all the time. Luckily, everything checked out every time so far. I guess you can never let your guard down.
