  • Obvious scam is obvious.

    Trawling the interwebs I found:

    2009 Ktm Rc8 1190 | 2009 KTM Sport Bike in Box Springs GA | 3557555567 | Used Motorcycles on Oodle Marketplace

    Intrigued I emailed this person and got the reply:

    Hello ,

    My name is Elizabeth
    ,I am emailing you regarding the 2009 KTM RC8 1190 that I have for sale. I sell at this price (US$2,500.00)because i just finished the divorce with my husband. When the divorce has finished i received this bike .Now as a women i don't need. This bike is in excellent working conditions, no scratches, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions and comes with a clear title, 3 months transferable warranty. From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request ONLY secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using Google Wallet services. We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at Google Wallet and I have a purchase protection account.The final price that I want for this bike is US$2,500.00 including shipping and handling.You will receive with the bike : keys,title, all the receipts that I have from it, owner's manual, service manual, and also a sale receipt signed at a legal attorney stating that I'm selling you this bike .Everything has been paid for ( inspections,shipping, staff, insurance, etc.) so you won't have to pay for anything else . If we reach an agreement, the bike will be delivered directly to your address.
    When it arrives, you must have your ID ( preferably 2 forms of identification ) and sign for receiving.
    If you are interested in buying it please provide me your Full Name, Address and Phone Number so I can initiate the deal through Google Wallet .

    I will wait your answer(if you are interested to buy) very soon!!
    Thank you and have a nice day

    Clearly a scam so I mail back:

    Hi Elizabeth,
    It’s OK, I’m in GA also, I’ll just come by and give you cash for the thing when I pick it up.
    Cheers,


    Then get the reply:

    Hello again ,

    Thank you for still being interested in buying mybike,I will respond your inquires, but first let me explain you how the whole process for this transaction will work:

    I'm really sorry for you but i think is to late for inspection because I'm not in the city for the moment (like you know i just finished the divorce with my husband and i have moved to my parents home inBuffalo / New York for a while.) probably you saw it in another state because i used more states to find quickly an buyer ,shipping is free anywhere in United States
    I want to tell you that we will use Google Wallet in this transaction in order for both of us to be 100% protected and insured by them, Google Wallet will supervise over our transaction. They will take care of the shipping (Thebikeis already at the shipping company in with all papers and documents ready to be shipped) and all the small details. You will get thebikeand you will have15 calendar days return-policy in which you can decide if you will buy thebikeor not.In the inspection period you can test thebike, go with thebikeat your local mechanic for inspection.After your inspection period (15 calendar days) In case you won't like thebike( not your case ) you will notify Google Wallet and you will send thebikeback on my expense, if you want to keep it you will also announce Google Wallet , you will send the funds ( payment method and all the details will be set up by Google Wallet ) and you will keep thebike.Please get back to me with yourFULL NAME & FULL ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBERso i can forward your details to Google Wallet in order for you to receive your purchase invoice and if you will agree with what will find in the invoice will go from there.

    Google Wallet will contact you with an invoice and they will explain you how to start this transaction all the details and instructions for this transaction will be found in the invoice and you will see this transaction is legit. If you will disagree with the transaction proposed by Google Wallet , you can simply refuse to continue with the transaction and would be no problem,I still have a few offers left.

    PS : Don't forget to send me your Full Name, Address and Phone Numberif you are really interested in thisbike.
    And also I will need them for further collaboration regarding the transaction and better explanation of the whole process!
    Thank you for all and if you have other questions please reply to my email.


    The email used was
    [email protected], which my guess is not spoofed.
    Thought some of you guys might get be able to some entertainment from this person.
    Yes I've reported the ad as a scam, not sure there's much else to do except have fun with it.

    It is even more amusing with the anti fraud sign placed right next to the pic warning you not to do exactly what the advertiser is asking to be done.

    Poor Elizabeth , with all her divorce issues and such...
    Sventek, being a predominantly lazy fuck can you please purchase some for me, bring me the stuff, create something I want after you think of it for me then clean my house, wash my car, dog, bike breathe for me.
