I believe that there is a frudulent element , purporting to be operating under the ebay  umbrella , involing the
 ' sales ' of  motor bikes. Yes we would all like a year old £12,000 immaculate , low mileage  machine for £2,000  but , if it is far too good to be true then , well, common sense must tell you  , that its just not going to be true. One has to register to bid and this process is not possible  but, one is rewarded with ebay's email from the customer support team  ! !  The purchase is covered under a purchase protection plan ( oh , yes it  is ! oh no it isn't  ) . Next they ask you to send the money to  their agent ( approved by ebay ! !  ) - a box no. in London .   The bike is near Dartfrd but the postcode  for the address is east of  Ipswich ? ? Small detail ..  They do not answer any questions  but push for the money to be lodged with their agent THEN you can go and pick up the bike !  No way can you see it , ride it, examine the papaerwork. NO way can you pay by  cash / bankers order the only way is a money gram . to their agent   FIRST.  The emails take on a terser turn and the grammer leaves a bit to be desired . QUOTE " As soon as you make the transfer as ebay said they will confirm me that the transfer is done you can come and take the bike .'  Every email aks if you have sent/ lodged  the money gram to the approved agent.  So , in a nutshell you  ( and maybe another 50 ) sent the moneygram  to a third party before you can be given details of where to pick up the bike  WOW
Bikers,  Please ,please  Bike scams Plus Plus be  careful this dont just smell it stinks    Thank you    Bill wilkinson
