2009 Cervelo R3 with only 10-15 miles as the seller states, for only $1300? Yeah right...

I just bought a bike yesterday. I saw this bike today and told my wife what a deal that was. Yea, it must be stolen. Thank God I didn't go buy this bike. What should that thing really go for?

Cervelo's website says retail is $4900. Theres no way in hell this bike could be legitimately selling for $1300. The seller just copy pasted some stuff from Cervelo's website to make it look like he was a legitimate roadie.
I emailed the guy to see if I could get his location. We'll see what happens.

Ahhh just got an automated reply back from the seller. Craigslist scam heh. Never seen it done this way before. Usually when I post something up on CL, I'll get robotic responses from guys that say they will send me a personal check through a third party.
Heres the response that was sent back to me lol:
hi,the bike is available,perfect condition ,this bike will come with the original receipt,i work with eBay for this deal because I'm now out of country with my job so if you want to buy this bike please send your full name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org for registering as my customer and ask them to send you an invoice for this transaction,i tell you from the start that you will have the bike first and inspect it and only after you finish the inspection period if you agree i will receive the money,let me know thanks

I saw a couple of bikes this weekend that were REAL cheap. I just couldn't draw myself to call or email them because the prices were suspect. Yea, let us know what happens.
