Why would they send you a check. I thought you were buying something from them? Do people really fall for that? It makes no sense.

P.S. what do you think they were going to do with your name and adress?
That was an old email. But ...I'll buy anything if the price is right!

hehe... and the reply from the 'busa' seller...

Quote:

Hello,

Miles:2669
VIN# JS1GW71A862111612

I am very glad you are interested in my offer.The bike is like new, comes with cover, manual and the original documentation,it has been kept in my own garage, no scratches, never been into mud, more than excellent. Awesome condition , only few hours on it.
As a shipping career I will use DHL insured which I think it's a mutually satisfactory service, all the shipping/handling and insurance charges are included in the sale price of $4900 US.
The unit is being shipped from Miramar,FL and you won't have to pay any additional taxes when it arrives in your town, will take 3-4 working days to be delivered.
You will get the package with proper papers, clear title, bill of sale signed by me as well.

I realise that is a cheap price for such a Bike but my special situation makes me do things that i would't do in normal circumstances and belive me it is not easy at all for me to sell a thing which was one of my dreams during last years.Look forward to hear from you to discuss about payment and details...

Waiting for your reply,
Best regards.

John White
