    Offered full asking price with full pick-up and pay pal deposit and just got an answer after 2 days of silence that he would take other offers ???

    I SMELL A SCAM...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Be carefull with your money here,,,
    And if you offer full asking price with an emediate deposit and seller does not want to contact you or sell I believe the add should be taken down



    user name is vpilot and he was not willing to take full asking price,,, something is up and i think his bike should be pulled

    That seems kinda fishy. Did he give you more of an explanation than he was going to look at other offers? I was just wondering if someone beat your offer, or some other offer he wanted to look at. He could have told you so if that was the case, and adjusted his ad to reflect this.

    If there is case where is it believe there is proof that someone is a scammer, their ad will be taken down, and/or feedback of what transpired may be added..."IF" is it deemed they are one.

    To me "Taking offers this week" means you arent likely to hear from the seller immediately and maybe not 'till the end of the week.

    As a seller if someone offers full asking price deposit and pickup, I may start thinking that I didn't ask enough or could maybe get more, if I play it right

    Another thing there is a PayPal scam where the buyer offers a deposit , full PayPal payment and pickup. Then when it comes time to pickup they send a friend to get the car /bike. And two days later pull the payment saying that they never got the bike... the seller will loose the money and the buyer ends up with the money and the bike. Because PayPal will want the buyers description and signature, if the buyer was " a friend" the the seller looses all.
    Everytime I put a car up for sale, I get at least one maybe 2 or 3 off these PayPal scam offers. I respond by saying I will sell it cash in person only and if they want their friend to pick it up for them , no problem just send the cash with them.
    Unfortunately many sellers pretty much ignore the I will pay full asking price with PayPal offers, unless something else tips them off that it isn't just another scam offer.

    WTF how do I keep doing that ,it's the second time I have ended up replying to a thread that is deader than my sex life. I usually read from the top ten board since I am on almost daily. Maybe it's the "similar threads that are getting me in trouble.

    Anyhow my apologies to the OP, sorry I wasn't able to bestow upon you my infinite wisdom in your time of need.
    If you don't hear back in another year or two it might be an actual scam.
