Fraudlient buyer: ken brownian aka email@example.com
This buyer commited to buying my motorcycle and failed to perform despite several email exchanges. See the thread below for details. I would warn anyone away from doing business with this fellow...
Today makes the 4th business day where you have failed to perform as you promised. The motorcycle is going to another buyer and I’m going to be most happy to report your name and email address to bikez.biz as fraudulent and an insincere person to do business with.
Thanks so much for wasting my time and efforts.

I’ve sent you the information you requested and have not received a payment as agreed so far. I’ll give this another 2 working days for your payment to arrive before I consider your offer faulty and commit to another buyer that has made a similar offer.

I\´ll accept either cash the day of the sale or a cashier\´s check drawn from a US bank and will release the bike 10 working days after receipt of that check to allow the check to clear. Sorry if these seem tough requirements but I\´ve heard too many horror stories of scams on the internet.

I saw your advert on the net about the sale of your Bike.I will like to know if you still have it for sale so i can make payment immediately thru direct bank transfer because i have an account with Bank Of America(BOFA) or if yu would prefer payment by check or credit card.Pls let me know the actual amount you would sell to me so i can make provision for the payment and also for shipping immediately.Although i have a shipper who handles the shipment of everything i buy and i have informed him already about the purchase of this item.So once i get the final clearance from you then i can tell him to come over for the pick up
