Is this for real?

yeh its legit.. the starting bid is .11cents... however im sure the reserve is near 1000

if reserve is never met... it will not be sold

EJ123 02-18-06 10:00 PM

Oh. Can they can hide the "reserve not met" thingy?

Pugdawg1 02-18-06 10:00 PM

Don't they say that there is a reserve when there is one? I'm not seeing where it says there is a reserve, or am I having a blonde moment and overlooking it?

Looks like a hacked account to me...

It's simply just another Ebay scammer, likely through a stolen account. The auctions will be shutdown and the original owner given back his account eventually. These (attempted bike scams) are ever-so-common if you're a compulsive Ebay shopper like I am :o.

Oh ok

Something stinks about that listing. That is one of those that you just walk away from because there is something just not right about it. It looks like an e-mail phishing operation.

It's a 1 day listing and I would almost guarantee that it will be pulled by E-bay before it finishes.

It could be hot also.

You are correct. I don't know what it is with the bike scams. You see them very often and they are always shut down quickly.

Check the guy's other auctions, he's got hundreds of fake bikes. I've bid on bikes like these auctions, they were shut down and I was sent a message saying so.

idleuser 02-18-06 11:14 PM

Haha... not to mention he's never sold anything before.

Well the auction is gone now. That's a pretty good indicator it was a scam.

achc 03-05-06 02:16 PM
