    Among other cues: the deal is too good to be true, they can't get you real pictures of the item, they have a long drawn out explanation regarding shipment/product/payment (i.e., the bike is in the states but they are abroad in Europe and can only accept payment by check, etc.), and they do not use PayPal and only take escrow/check/money order/wire transfer.

    Eh, I money ordered for a pair of unused shorts, and they've delayed the shipping for a whole month now. Freakin' pissed off at the guy. He's said "I'll ship it out tomorrow" at least 5 times already.
