bike scams

ok so, anyone know why people make it so painfully obvious when selling bikes?

i mean come on... they post up 'new' bikes for sell and make it like 3k...
and on ebay... they make it pre approved buyers and the same with the 'low' price... for instance...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Suzuk...23570372QQrdZ1

im just wondering why they post prices are 'too' good to be true... and not a tad below the 'actual' vaule... i guess if 10 stupid people all spend 3k on a 'fake' bike... its better then 3 people spending 5k... must be A LOT of DUMB people to pay without seeing/paying for the bike in person...

anywho... maybe too stupid beyond my reasoning... it just gets annoying when searching for bikes and having to sort through the non-sense...

the law prolly just gives a slap on the wrist when/if the seller's are ever caught... doesnt it have to be over 10k for it to be serious?

Most of it is hacked accounts by people outside the country. Not much the law can do anyways.
