The more I read it looks like they changed a few things to make it new. For example it says the bike is in the united states now.

Hey,
I think It's a total scam. no phone, no address, nothing. He didn't really answer any of my questions, this just seems like a mass e-mail. Someone took over this guy's identity for sure. i might report it to Ebay... Not sure yet.
I e-mailed the seller to ask some questions and this is the reply I got:
"Dear Sir,

We are located in L.A., California

In order to be pre-approved please inform us if you ever purchased a high price item on eBay. We also need to know if you have negative feedback. We apologize for asking these questions but we had a lot of problems with non paying bidders in the past and we lost a lot of money in listing fees. All of our products are brand new (not refurbished) and comes with all the factory accessories. They are 100% insured and have a one-year warranty from the date of purchase.

Warranty card (US warranty) will be enclosed with invoice. The shipping is free only within US. All our products are available for overnight shipping (additional charge will be asked).

Regards,



Faster Motors Grp"

Watch out guys.

Normally these things are from overseas somewhere & try to get you to at least pay the shipping up front. If they're from the US, just tell them you'll pick up the bike at their earliest convience & bring cash. I did this with a guy in Florida once & immediatly got turned down. I notified the local Sheriff.

I heard about this one (actually, sent the link to a bunch of friends who told me about the scam). The scam, I've heard, is that he asks for a credit card to be pre-approved. He then walks with your card number. This guy has apparently been doing this for a while (first time w/ a Duc, supposedly) by stealing peoples' user id to post with.
