Is it possible for the moderators to review a conversation I am having with a seller? I think he is trying to scam me. He wants a deposit just to come look at a bike. Ostensibly because he is allowing a "stranger to visit his home". Also a scanned copy of my ID.

Why don't you both agree on a public location? No need to go to each others homes.


Edit: didn't see above comment.

Maybe it to ensure you are legitimate.
Zero info on your profile and just joined it will flag you as a possible scammer.
The seller might be hesitant just to give you his home address without proof of ID and some commitment as you could use that info to rob him.
I had a situation some time ago I was selling an MX bike, person arranged to look at my bike got my address and tried to break into my garage, 3 bikes were stolen locally that night.

That is sure a very valid argument. But why not meet somewhere public? =/ just saying
Best advice, That's what I took to.

This ad https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2145542 is a scammer. They have copied my genuine ad, pics and description and similar seller name and are trying to sell a Mondraker Foxy XR for £1000. AVOID

Has anyone else noticed that even if ho banned Scamanda Batt has still been able to post her ride logs?
Thought you couldn't post anything if you were banned?

Could be linked to Trailforks automatically or something. I have never used it so don't know but it would make sense.

Hey, I purchased a set of bolts and grips from nazmi back on January 19th. He neglected to inform me that he was sending the order to the manufacturer in Taiwan and that they would be shipped from their. I only paid more to have them more quickly... It has been now 4 months, with nothing to show for the purchase. I send an email last week for a refund as I have purchased the parts I needed months ago. Is there anything you can do before I send the request to PayPal?

Thanks

I don't understand why you would send anyone that information...all you need to give someone to receive a bank transfer is their email address.

Do not buy/sell with user name Kensti, this guy is a complete Ass hat and scammer. Mods will hopefully be deleting his account soon.
