Hi all,
just a quick posting with some info on a scammer who replied to my bike ad. (I'm selling a MTB.) Here's the email thread, with my email removed:

Yes, the bike is still available. I'm asking $1200, but open to reasonable and fair offers. What's your offer? Shipping is an additional $75. Where are you located? The bike is in Seattle, WA.


Are you a serious person or a scammer? Your poor grammar and lack of detail makes me suspect you are a scammer. You have to convince me that you're not before I'll accept any payment or ship the bike. Don't waste my time.

OK let me know the final asking price so that.i can mail a check for
it and arrange for pick up, send down your name and address so i can
go on with the payment Tomorrow.

I've ended the conversation there. Sorry, not many details to go on (not even sure what the MTBR username is). But if you get emails like this, it's almost certainly a scam.
