He/she is still at it, figured it was a scam after no response via text, but sent an email anyways to see what bs response I got it and it's the same as posted here. I'm surprised he/she didn't want to buy all my bikes.

Ditto - still going at it:

Thanks for your response..I'm quite satisfied with the condition and
price,and I need you to understand that i am willing and ready to
purchase it right away, end the advert, consider me as your favorite
buyer. I will be paying the PayPal charges (3.4%) from my account and
will be paying directly into your PayPal account without any delay,
and I hope you have a paypal account. If you have one already, just
send me the address to send it to, which is the email address you use
for it or you can send me a paypal money request, so once i receive
the details i will go ahead with the payment through PayPal and then I
will contact my shipping company after you get the payment. I will
need your home address for it to be Picked Up by the Shipping
Company..

Regards

Hey guys. Just got a text from someone indicating a tomasz Scot was going to email me and to send him an email. I did so and he sent the first message. Did you guys receive the email from tomaszscot@gmail.com?

Same BS received today from cell phone #
(917) 580-9418. New York area code.

Text message read as follows:
"Hello is your bike still on for sale? reply my husband via :tomaszscot@gmail.com for better discussion"

Stay safe everybody. Protect yourselves against cyber-thieving predators.

Glad to see you post on this thread. Makes me feel safer about our transaction. But here's a question: How can someone get scammed if they send money over etransfer? It would seen to me that it's a safe way.
