    Default Scam Buyer Alert



    Hi Everyone, I was messaged by a guy ( Sean/ Dass) claiming to want to buy my bike and to liaise with his sister as he is overseas. the Person claiming as sister will only email and ask you for more pics, then saying satisfied with the pics and price will offer to send the money by pay pal. then will send email claiming money sent but on hold by PayPal because you have to send a shipping payment which she has included in the transaction sent to you by PayPal. she will ask you to send the money by Western Union to Qatar or other countries. you will receive email which looks like it was sent by PayPal (but it is not). DON'T FALL PREY TO THIS SCAM. i was alert as it was too good to be true and they never communicate by phone. BE ALERT.!!!!

    I got the exactly same enquiry.
    First got an SMS from "Dass".
    Then after few email exchange with his sister on further info & photos, they want to buy my bike and ship to Qatar.
    When they said they can only make PayPal payment, I was alarmed and did some searching.
    Lucky that fellow rider brothers here shared their experience.

    Brothers, be alert of this scam, especially when the deal is too good to be true.
