So I put an ad on pinkbike for my Kona Cowan right, this guy emails:

I am Mr.CALNON.I mailed you in response to your advert placed on the internet that you want to sell your kona cowan 04.I would like to let you know that i am quite pleased to express my interest and satisfaction in it.Please if it is still available, kindly let me know...
1.The current condition (tell if negotiable)
2.Your asking price
3.The items picture
4.Payment through a cheque or money order that can be drawn in any CANADA bank.
You can contact me via email:
Best Regards,

translation= I am going to scam you by "mailing"(WINK WINK) the money and you will have shipped your bike off. By the time you realise your money isn't coming, it's too late to get your bike back and my name/account is fake.

Just letting you know that this can happen a lot and watch out for it. I've heard of this happening a lot on pinkbike too.

BTW: if he really wants it he should realise its an 05 not 04...
