2000 Hayabusa -- seemed too cheap

|Sport Bike Lover said 2007-01-10 03:56|
Just thought I\īd help some prospective buyers, thinking about getting a Suzuki Hayabusa. Seems they are quite the target for scammers. I just got done with a string of emails between myself and a \īseller\ī of a 2000 Hayabusa that was being advertised on this site.
Long story short, he wanted to ship it to me, even though I was only about a 6 hour drive from where the bike supposedly was. When I asked to drive up to look at the bike and test drive it, he had the excuse that it was already packed for shipping. I had a feeling it was a scam from the beginning, but I want to let others know that there are people out there, like this guy, that claim to be working through a shipping company (in this case www.forwarders-pvt-ltd.com), and expect you to send the money through the shipping company, and they supposedly in turn will send the bike. Well, I\īm just not that trusting!!!
So, whenever someone tries to convince you that your bike will be \īin the mail\ī as soon as you send money, I\īd run away from that person as fast as I could!!!
p.s. I\īm not sure if that shipping company is legitimate or not, but I\īm betting not, since there\īs nothing on their website to indicate where they physically exist -- no phone number or address. I think it\īs a scam as well.
