Just this morning I emailed a person on Craigs List about a motorcycle, price seemed too good to be true, we all know how that goes. Anyway, a person emails me back and right away goes into why its so cheap and immedietely tells me that all payments will be made through ebay (apparently to make it appear legit) but they would just need my full name and address to start a "case". I became suspicious. I sent another email asking for their phone number and never got a response. I guess they are assuming that I wasn't going to pay cash by right away asking for more info? Is getting my full name and address enough to do anything w/ ebay or is that merely step 1 towards getting more account info? Does anyone know how this scam works? By the way this is the second motorcycle related sscam for me in the last couple of weeks. Another guy claimed he and the bike were in London and he would ship the bike over here and provide me with the "data" that the bike was shipped and at that point I was to send him half the money. I called his bluff and surprise, never heard from him again.
Please be careful everyone, especially if you happen to be looking for a bike.
