The address given was KPRC. I called them and told them that people might be showing up. I also told them how to flag and remove the ad. - which it looks like they did.

This was my conversation with Mr. Scam: (in reverse order)
***********************
I will meet you at the address given. I will be there at 5:30pm with cash in hand.
An officer friend of mine will accompany me to insure ridability (street legal) requirements are up-to-date as I will be riding it home and don’t want to get stopped.

Retail is 5700, trade in is 3700 - at $3194 this bike appears to be a helluva deal. And it's in near perfect condition with low miles. Too good to be true. Scammers try to keep the price around 3k, it has something to do with western union's fraud claims idk. If you send the money it is gone and nothing can be done about it. This ad reeks of scam, including email addy in posting so if it gets flagged it will still be in your cache so you can still contact the "seller".

Email this guy, i can bet money he'll write back wanting some sort of western union transfer
