I did not mean to imply that all bike ads on CL were scams. I was speaking in general, not specifically about bikes. I have run into scammers all over CL. I responded to an ad about a puppy. Scam! Looking for a truck. Scam! So on and so forth. Scamming has become so bad that I have to use an anonymous burner phone number to list my stuff anymore, because the last time I used my real number the scammer used it to to track me down and contact me through my company private email address. Every time I list anything, I get offers nine scam offers for every legitimate person wanting to buy my stuff. Maybe it as not as bad up north, but in Texas, it is so bad most people won't use CL anymore and prefer to sell things through Facebook Garage Sale group. I still use CL, but extremely cautiously.
