What do you guys think of this: A guy is selling his bike in another state at a really good price because hes going to iraq. He wants to use ebay buyer protection and he will ship it to me on his cost...

does this sound legit to you? its not a known scam is it?

Be very cautious with out of state purchases. Especially ones with stories of needing to sell because of Iraq or divorce. Combine these two with offers that are entirely too good!!!!:tard: As mentioned before, have a relative or friend in that state check it out for you. After you mention that to most shammers, they will back down all of a sudden. Just my .02. C6r

yeah thats pretty much my opinion too, i have been talking with the guy via email this weekend and have maintained a very skeptical mindset... I'm just not sure what the scam here would be... its a 2006 600rr with 1100 miles and he sent me pictures i requested. the bike is in alaska and i know a lot of AK natl guard units are being sent to iraq. im assuming its not going to work out but if it does then yay me i guess...

Let me guess. The guy claims he's from Alaska but is selling from California?

Scam. There's been some guy claiming he has a bike in Alaska and is being shipped out to Iraq so he needs to sell the bike because he doesn't want it in his garage. There's been a few threads already about it on here.

Seem very fishy coming from Alaska, just because another guy from this forum had a similar sweet deal from a guy in Alaska he posted in craigslist.

If you can have your buddy in Alaska check it out then that would be cool
If not then i would recommend you do not send any money.

at least bluff that your buddy in Alaska wants to check it out.

Just wondering, why should we have to win you over? Gixxer.com seems right for you.
