I accused a guy of stealing on ebay...
Ok, so I'm an avid cyclist, and bikes get stolen all the time, and I see suspicious auctions on ebay constantly. Anyways, there was this rather shady looking auction, the guy didn't know ANYTHING about the bike(it was a fixed gear, btw), and didn't disclose where he originally got it. The bike was built at a store in my state, not to far from where I live, and his auction was taking place on the west coast. He said the bike was made in his state, which is a total lie because I know it was made in my state(even had the LBS logo on the bike lol). So I told the guy I had the exact same bike stolen, just to see if he'd open up a little more. He just kept feeding me lines like "I have the original receipt" blah blah blah. Yet he couldn't tell me where it was purchased from, and he could barely speak English. Now he has pulled the auction off of ebay. Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't stolen, but was it really wrong of me to investigate using this method?
