Eh, I've come across quite a few scams, including one bike that had "such high interest" I needed to apply to see if I was the right buyer I do get quite a few more scam attempts on the selling side, though.

That said, more often than scams, are the bikes that simply are not honestly represented. They can be a big time suck, if you aren't into such buying modes.
