Susan,

If you need any more info on the bike, I'd be happy to provide it before the sale. I will, however, require some information from you as well, if you don't mind. I'm very fond of the bike and want to make sure it will go to the right buyer who will care for it as well as I have.

To start with, could you send a photo of yourself on a bicycle? Also, could you provide some physical information (if you don't mind - I don't mean to be personal) such as height, weight, bust size and waist size. The last bit is important to determine how the seat will fit and how comfortable you will be on the bike. As closeup picture from behind would make it easier to judge.

Thanks - I look forward to doing further business with you.

Greg

true story here:
My wife advertises in craiglist that she does piano lessons. one time, this was 2 months ago, someone contacts her, i tell her to go along with it and see if they send a check. they sent one for 6.5k no BS. she went to the bank, she was not a customer there, so they didnt know her, but they gave her the 6.5k in 100's and then she brought it home and put it away.
3 weeks later, thats how long it took them to find her, the girl remembered her name, otherwise they had no record of who Margo is or was. They called and asked if she could bring the funds back, she didnt have to, but they would prefer of course. She did. The check was a good copy of a stolen account that had funds and was an active account.
true story, weird I know.

It was an honest mistakes IF it was returned otherwise it will be turned over to the FBI. Besides, that was not one of the bad checks but there are several of them, I am sure.

she did nothing wrong, the check and emails were for music lessons for a kid paid by his dad from overseas, thats all we knew and we had emails and such to back it up. Although we knew it was a scam, I wanted to see how far they would go. They went as far as sending a check from a stolen account. She did the right thing. Legally, we are told she did not have to, she was expected to provide a service that was prepaid, if they never come for the lessons, thats their fault.

I dunno what info she left, She was told by the bank, she did not have to return the money, as from her end, she was paid for a service, she did not know it was from a stolen account. She was told the girls who were the tellers that day would lose their jobs for doing incorrectly. If she returned, they would keep their jobs. Margo had no problem returning it, thats why it was put away waiting.
