Bicycle e-bay scam?

This guy has 10 top road bikes for cheap but his feedback is suspect and then he wants to make the deal off e-bay? Should I report him?

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Well, it is a violation of ebay policy to use an auction to advertise a non-auction item... Plus it looks shady as hell...

Re: Bicycle e-bay scam?

I'm not so much into pedaling so I took a 3rd person perspective and this is what I see that makes me cringe.

- I want to do legit buisness through ebay, but "Please do not bid on the auction!!!

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

I'm also banning you for posting links to fraudulent auctions

Re: Bicycle e-bay scam?

It's gone, must have been a scam:

Quote:
his listing (#7215567168) has been removed or is no longer available. Please make sure you entered the right item number.

If the listing was removed by eBay, consider it canceled. Note: Listings that have ended more than 90 days ago will no longer appear on eBay.

Try searching for another item now.
