Big bikes readily available in Philippines nowadays. And illegal imports not easily registered anymore. Of course if riding only out in the provinces nobody cares.

Ha Ha , yea , we wasn't 10 minutes in when that happened . The funny thing about it for me was , I sent him 2 or 3 txt a day telling him to make sure everything is tightened , looked over , etc etc , I told , I said you don't wanna be THAT GUY .
What was it , not even 10 miles from the start he earned his THAT GUY badge . I still poke him about that .

Doubtful, but I suppose it's a possibility. High risk though, and most scammers operate overseas purely remotely. More than likely after initiating contact they would eventually come up with some BS story to try and get you to paypal or otherwise send them some money.

The common one I've heard of is they will respond with a story about how they've had a huge amount of interest due to the low price, but need cash ASAP to deal with some *** story tragedy. They say for whatever reason they want to give you the chance to buy, provided you can send an immediate deposit to show you're serious since they are not available for a few days due to (insert tragedy). The hope is obviously you fall for it, send them the couple hundred bucks "deposit", and then take no action for a few days, which gives them time to transfer the money out of paypal (where you could make a fraud claim and get it back), and into remote accounts where it vanishes for good. They usually say you have to paypal the money as a "gift", not "payment", again for some BS excuse- it's because paypal doesn't pursue fraud claims if you don't pay their fees by marking it as a "payment".

Re: The Craigslist Thread

My buddy is selling this little guy - https://austin.craigslist.org/mcy/d/...301468205.html

He told me he would take several hundred dollars less than he is asking on the CL ad. Rode it today, started first kick. Needs some tlc, but could be a cheap fun little farm bike.

Lets fire up the Craigslist BS translator-
"adjustment"

Those forks on that bike are off an early 90's KX motocrosser. You can tell by the blue anodized color. This was a fairly common upgrade for the old KDX's. It does not say the year of that bike but I would guess 88 or 89. Maybe worth 500 bucks, but worth nothing to me. Just too old and too easy to buy something 20 years newer for not much more money.

93 & 94 model years has USD forks - so the year is probably accurate

if it just needs a clutch that is....

Re: The Craigslist Thread

Sorta shopping for a trailer ... saw this.

https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/tr...318377243.html

Got this response when I asked for more details ...

Quote:
Hi again ,
Thank you very much for getting back to me but I would like to clarify some things first. I am selling the trailer at this price because my husband passed away not long ago (he was very sick) and this trailer brings me bad memories and that's the reason why I want to sell it asap. Another reason for selling it is because I work in military and right now I'm on a military base. We are training and getting ready to leave the country. The trailer is already at the shipping company ready for delivery because someone agreed to buy it, but in the end he never got the loan. For this reason, the shipping is already paid for. I will use e Bay in this transaction for our protection. If you are not aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you to test and inspect the trailer before paying me. The inspection period will be set to 7 days and I think that is enough time for you to make a decision about the trailer. If you won`t like my trailer you notify e Bay and you send it back at my expense. But I assure you that won't be the case. If you want to continue the purchase, please reply with your full name, delivery address and phone number so I can start the transaction with e bay and ask them to send you the terms of this transaction. ( with no further obligation or fees).
Thank you
Poor lady ... sounds legit, right?

Right? Why else do it? I don't send anything to CL ads that only have one pict. If you take the time to post an ad, you'll have more that one. Usually.
