dibs!

oh wait, scam!


This reminds me, I won an auction for some mustang rims a few years ago,, they were $3000 rims and tires for $1800... I almost sent the western union the seller wanted until i called the number on the posted ebay account and the dude that answered wasn't selling rims. We found out that someone hacked his account and posted the wheels. I even spoke to the scammer on the phone and he sounded pretty convincing. So if it's too good to be true then it's prolly a scam and never send money western union. WU told me that if I sent the money there was no way to get it back, plus no rims.

if you REALLY think a ducati is being sold for $2800 then you have to be crazy.

and no way in is that some scorned wife being off. if some woman posted that ad it would be "come get my worthless pile of husbands bike for next to nothing, its some italian job called a ducati and has 999 on the side of it
first caller with cash can have it!"

If the scammers had half a clue they would post more realistic numbers but I guess there's a sucker born every minute. They wouldn't be doing it if some stupid bastards weren't falling for it.
