Re: Cycle Trader

I know I posted about this a week or two ago, but I'm still mad to find so many scammers on the site.

One
Two
Three

The phone-numbers, of course, are bogus. *Hell, two of the scams have the same bogus number. *I know most people would have an alarm going off after seeing a 1000 or R1 advertised for $4000, but for those of you who don't...just be careful.

Re: Cycle Trader

Any chance that the 929/954 low priced ads are rip-offs also?

Would be nice to know that is why they are appearing to sell so cheap.

Re: Cycle Trader

Yeap. CycleTrader needs to implement some anti-fraud scraping software. It's not that freaking hard!!!!!

It wouldn't surprise me. Really, any bike that is supposed to be in great condition and is priced at half of what it should be raises a concern to me. I guess I'm just careful with things like this, given the fact that there are so many scams and farces out there (check your email lately?).

I'm surfing Cycle Trader to possibly find a 600 for the track. When I see one of these supposed 'deals', I call the phone-number listed. Every time it comes back bogus. I guess I call because I'd like to find one dumb enough to list a working number.

Damn dude. Be carefull! Some of those area codes are in the Carribean and you can get socked with a $25.00 per min. phone call!

That's common tactic of those porn-dialers that get installed from some websites.

I'd never call an area code without knowing where it is first. yikes!

I've seen a number of those scan on Cycletrader. It's all just going to crap. I used to scan Monster.com for jobs and keep track of the market.. now I found that about 1/2 of the postings that come back are 'Work-at-Home' scams. I contacted Monster and they couldn't seem to care less and in fact *defeneded* the postings.

Hopefully CycleTrader will stepup and try to ferret out bad ads. All it does is marginalize their service. Not that I've had any success with it in the last couple of years. Pffft.

The local paper they put in the bars seems to get me a lot more response when I want to sell something.
