Well, as some of you may know, I listed my bike up for sale for a one week special price of $4000.
After a ton of texts/calls/emails, I decided to work with this guy, Dustin (600BonesRR). I sent him my personal infomation (name, numbers, address, a picture of my license) for verification.
I went out of my way to hold the bike for him for a few days while he got the money order set up, and also to hold the bike for him while he saved up for shipping. He showed serious interest in the bike, so I said why not. The bike was to be kept stored in my garage until he got the money for shipping, and I would send him a bill of sale and the title when I received payment.
Everything was set in stone, and he claimed that he sent the money order, but then "lost" the receipt with the tracking numbers on it. Red flag number one.
He said he'd go back to the store and request the tracking numbers and get back to me that night. Few hours later and still no response.
After texting him a few times, I finally got a response and he said he didn't get a chance to go get the tracking numbers. Hm...
Wednesday he said that the money order will arrive by Friday.
Friday came and went, and no payment. I texted him multiple times with no response. Emailed him, and nothing. Called, and no answer. I left a voicemail, but never got a call back.
The next morning I get an email saying this;
My parents have access to my bank account because I'm a part of theirs or something. They didn't want me sending the money unsafely so they cancelled it. They said that you can send me pictures and everything you want but that doesn't guarentee anything. I wasn't aware that it was cancelled till this morning.
I was never updated after he found this out.
I have serious doubts that he ever even sent the money order in the first place. Considering he is 19 years old, I should have expected such immature actions.
Oh well, the bike is back up for sale, but I assure you all that I will never do business with Dustin again.
