I put a bike up for sale on Faceachea marketplace, I've had this bike advertised on gumtree and no interest,
Is this a scam, Bills_10



I priced it at £200, then dropped it to £150, there was still no interest so, I put it on marketplace and within minutes, I got a reply,

I'll buy it but I'm too busy to pick up, I will send a UPS agent to pick it up, he will bring cash,

I answered, I can deliver if you are local,

I'm in Vannes, came the answer,

I asked can you pay by paypal,

She said no, The agent will bring cash, It all seems a bit iffy to me,

Its not a high end bike going cheap sp why would anyone in France buy one untried and pay a courier ????

alarm bells are ringing,,

what do you say ?

yes, I think it is because, the offer of buying came only minutes after the post, If he or she wanted it that desperately, Why not paypal or transfer ? they must have a UPS signed car/van with forged money going round to buy stuff,

beware folks, be careful out there, Crying or Very sad
