i came across an auction for a 2005 gsxr 1000 being sold for $4000 with a clean title, $3,000 in mods, ect ect... i knew this was a scam, so i emailed the guy and got this from his reply:

Thank you for your interest in purchasing my bike.I know that are numerous offers on eBay and I'm glad that you choose to contact me regarding your willingness to purchase.
I am the first owner of the bike. You will receive your bike by FedEx Freight International at your home address. It is insured in case of damage and it takes 5 days to be delivered at your door. I will send you the bike with all the papers you need to register it under your name. No damages, no scratches or dents, never touched the ground, no hidden defects, the engine doesn't smoke, runs and sounds awesome, the engine has never been repaired
or something like that,never been into accidents. The bike is an US model with US specs (the speedomeeter is in miles), comes with all the documents you need to register the bike (manual,clear title in my hand, bill of sale signed by me).
I recently moved to Spain and I have to let you know that the bike is here with me.I didn't paid for Spain import taxes and if I'll keep the bike like that I'm going to lose it. Time is really an issue and we have to move fast.
The price I hope to obtain is $4,000US (this price includes the shipping and insurance) and if you agree with this price we can start to complete the transaction.
Price is good cause if I pay taxes here and sell it here would get the same price if I sell it in US from here. You will not have to pay additional taxes cause the bike is registered in US, just only the price for it.
For the payment we will use eBay Square Trade as a trusted, licensed third party mediator. The most important thing in all my activity here is that I am affiliated at eBay Square Trade. I have a purchase protection account for $10,000 and I assume you know what this mean.In case we will close this deal, you are protected by Square Trade. How you are protected by Square Trade, well, in case you will not receive the bike as I described to you, Square Trade will refund you with 100% from the whole amount which you paid.

If you are interested in this deal email me with your name and address where you want me to ship the bike,so I can open a case with them. You don't have to worry because I'm in Spain because I'll get paid only after you receive and inspect the bike and only if the bike is just as you expect it.If you decide to go further let me know asap.

Best regards,



Soooooo.... i decided to have a little fun and replied with this :toothy6: :

Im a spy if you would call it for the FBI, and a part of an organization that cracks down on online fraud. we have recieved an email from you and now have your personal information, and you have 24 hours from right now too pull your ad off ebay until we press charges, incase you are not fimiliar, its a $250,000 and up to 25 years in prision. have a good day.

cant wait to get the reply, i wonder if he takes the auction down, lol

You may want to be careful what you admit to doing. Representing yourself as a Federal Agent when you aren't isn't exactly legal.

yeah, i've ran into a few of these bikes when I was in the market 2 years ago (then I found the RR). There's no insurance at all when you send them the money.

Your writing doesn't seem professional/proper at all. I'm sure he's laughing at you.

Pretty sure if you were an officer/fbi agent you'd at least know how to capitalize letters and have basic grammar skills.

oh Manny, I'm just giving you a hard time.


just pointing out i don't think he's going to take it too seriously. I personally like sneaky Pete's approach telling them to die of cancer and all.

I'm not giving you a hard time, I think it's funny myself.
I just wanted to point that out to you for your own thoughts and protection.
