i think muflermufler may be a scammer. He's got an add up that is too good to be true and everytime i ask a question he doesnt know any details about the bike. He's also always responding to messages 12 hours after I ask a question which makes me think he's not in Rochester NY

OK - to followup on this. i asked for this guy to send more pictures and he called me a "stupid dog, i will F*&K your mother" so i guess i figured it out.

Well I ignored him. Then he seems to have checked the scammer thread only to find out that I posted about him potentially being a scammer. Wonder why he would look here. Now he’s messaging me calling me names for calling him out.

SCAM!

Paid via PayPal, seller said would ship next day. No response from seller. My son just messaged seller to see if bike is still available, seller replied yes!

Hasn’t been five days but this is suspect!

This entire thread is why @pinkbike should have a buyer/seller rating system like other sites.

Was your buying/selling experience good? Yes/No and Why.

Everyone gets some sort of score based on their rating and future buyers/sellers can see a little write up of all positive/negative reviews.

It would make using the buy/sell way easier. It's what a buy/sell site for firearms in Canada does it and I've never been scammed on some big ticket items.

Just a thought.

Purchased some SixC bars two weeks ago today, paid after looking at history, etc, messaging back and forth. Texted some pictures of them. Said he would ship the Wednesday after I paid, some back and forth then nothing. Seemed like a decent guy, but messages are marked read and no replies. Not a fortune but very frustrating, needed the bars and bought another pair.

So the bike24 scam is still going and i think people still fall for this. Seller had bike from april 8 and it was only listing he had, also he registered same day he put it on sale

Realy smart way to scam, he was realy friendly, offered to send it with local bike shop so i thaught it is max safe. Then the invoice came thru email, and i asked if i can order extra tyres as it was coming thru their shop, luckly they did a mistake, when i decided to get other tires wich where litle bit cheaper but probably he was in hurry so he add them as one and added price litle bit bigger, so it made me curious and i checked email - sales@bike24h.com and if you google it, some funky stuff starts to apear. I was lucky to get out from this one before they ripped me of

Hello, I was also almost scammed with the same bike 24 method as described earlier by others. Someone wanted to sell me the bike and asked me to pay in advance to the bike store close to them, and I could not check the bike in person. They wrote me from an email address which was similar to bike24's real ones.

Dont ever send money here:

Account Name: Francesca Giometti
Beneficiary address: Segelfalterweg 32, 14532 Stahnsdorf, Germany
Bank Name: N26 Bank
IBAN: DE35100110012626560528
BIC: NTSBDEB1XXX
Bank address: Klosterstraße 62 10179 Berlin
Reason for payment: 12353486

Dont ever send money who contacts with these address:
sales@bike24h.com
+4915175953805
https://www.pinkbike.com/u/domlich300/

The scammer showed me an ID, may its fake or a lost one:
Dominik Lichtenthäler or Lichtenthaeler
I also sowed them my ID so may in my name they will register a new profile. I'm Ákos Tótiván form Budapest, and PM me if someone would sell anything in my name, but most probably it will be a scam!

Regards, ad be careful!

Hi I have received a check for over 1000$ from this guy "fergusiom" it looks like he deleted his account. We have been talking via email.... who the hell sends a stranger a check for over 1000, anyway it might be a cashiers check scam. If anyone has any way of testing to see if it is I would be grateful. He wants me to break the check and give 75 to myself for a frame I am selling him and then wire the rest to some one else. Any suggestions?


I received a text message from 407 893 2420 number, no name, who told me they would send me a check without even asking for anything. i didnt give this person my info, i believe its a sacam.

Good day.

I want to clearly show you that the number of subscribers does not mean anything. I bought 2 pairs of TLD shorts from a user of slag-society. He stated that the shorts were original. One pair is new, and one is worn only once and like new. We agreed on the price and delivery. Nothing aroused my suspicions. Moreover, slag-society has a lot of subscribers. What could go wrong?

The shorts he sent me is the most substandard Chinese replica I've ever seen. It is as far from the original as Stern is far from Santacruz.

When I caught him scamming, he started acting like a bastard, look.
All correspondence, photos and video evidence are listed below.

Don't buy anything from him. slag-society is a scammer.

Now I need to send the shorts back to America, and only then will Paypal return my money. It takes a lot of time. And no one will reimburse me for the shipping cost.

P.S. I am from Russia. And Americans have some concerns about long-distance deals. But I've already made some good deals with fine Americans. I bought a frame V10, a fork RS, hubs i9 from America, and from Canada I bought a transmission kit X01.

P.S. 2. Whoever has a developed Instagram channel, I ask you to respond in order to spread information about this user there as well.

Information about this scammer:
slag-society - https://www.pinkbike.com/u/slag-society/
http://slagsociety.com
slagsociety@yahoo.com
The name specified as the sender. And also the address of the scammer:

Thanks for attention. Be careful.
