Looking into buying this road bike

This is a new $5,000 +/- road bike selling for about $350.
Has anyone purchased a bike from this website? It is a BMC Pro Machine Road Bicycle Full Campy Record 11. Maybe it's a scam.

You know what they say about too good to be true...

There is no way to manufacture that bike for $300...Campy doesn't have that for its parts wholesale. It doesn't make sense and I think it's safe to assume it's a scam.

I thought so after giving them my credit card number, then cancelled the transaction with my bank. Too good to be true!!
They also have other top of the lines road bikes for about the same price.

well it's not exactly classic & vintage .

They do show a Pinarello Prince full campy for $405.
now that's a steal (of your money).
if a site advertises with Western Union as a payment method, I'm
staying away from it.

I looked at aliexpress a while back as a source for wholesale bike products but it was supper scketchy and I have heard nothing but headaches from people who have bought stuff through them.

You're better off taking your $350 to a casino in hopes to win enough to buy a BMC.
That way you actually have a chance of ending up with the bike.
