If something is too good to be true it is likely not true.
The scamers will ask you for a wire transfer to Ireland after you place an order. Realize that nobody in his/her right mind would transfer to Ireland... Don't waste your time.

Here is the payment instruction I got from them, good laughs. Like the color of a medium helmet (at the end)... nice touch **LOL** Wondering how they figured it should be medium.

They stopped communicating right after I asked for VIN and the telephone number of the Sales manager... I was not going to prove my point by making the wire transfer and seeing what happens next...

this is not entirely true. I purchased a vehicle from Honda dealership before and they did ask for a wire transfer. In that case the transaction went through smoothly and i have that vehicle now...

How long ago was that? Do you have a bank account? Ppl did used to do it before it started to get abused and normally it was only if you did not have a bank account

And if its offered as a option for payment thats one thing, but if it is the only way to pay...idk about that

Maybe its the area, ppl here won't fool with them unless its a in person deal. Either way its not a wise ideal unless you actually know and have dealt with that person before. Just b/c someone has a U.S business address doesnt mean much these days as scams are becoming more indepth

That's definitely a scam... $3440 for an '09 and, of course, FREE shipping anywhere in the US!

Saw a guy on Craigslist selling a 2007 cbr 1000rr repsol for $2640. I just started talking to him to see the story. Knew it was a scam. And of course like most scams I have ever encountered, he was ready for deployment and didnt want it to "rust". Get a job.

The proof would be them asking for a wire transfer. No legit business will ask for a wire transfer.
No it isn't. Wire transfers are done all the time. I'm not saying anyone should buy from them, I have never done business with them but...The OP is making a statement with no facts.

No crime is committed until they disappear with someone's money... granted.
I just don't want to be the one explaining to police "that Marian Ghioaca dude from Crazy Wheel in Dublin took my money and I never heard from him again"... And I would not blame the police for having a good laugh at me in a situation like that.
