If you are looking to buy a trike - beware of scams.

I have looked at at least 3 and found the same issue, with different sellers.

Seller has 0 feedback, usually just registered with ebay.

The ad is a classified with an unbelievable price.

When you request to veiw, you will get the following reply word for word.

I have to tell you that I'm currently out of town with some major business problems so pick up/view isn't an option. Sorry about that... Hope you will understand... But, you can still buy the bike ... The selling price will be £900... For this price I will include free delivery of the bike anywhere in the UK. The selling price is so low because I need some cash asap due to some personal problems! However, before any delivery can be done we have to start the transaction on ebay so we can be both protected. In order to start the transaction on the eBay system I need to receive some details from you:
- your full name and address (for your invoice + delivery purposes)...
As soon as the above details will be provided I'll start the official transaction on eBay and they will notify you about this. You'll also receive important guidelines + instructions from them (delivery, purchase protection, payment, refund policy). Will wait to hear from you.
Thank you for your interest...

Usually these ads don't last long,


You have been warned!!!!!!!!!!! Don't part with any cash as it is unlikely you will see it again.
