Sorry for double posting, this is my main account, bojack97 was the one I used to message her to prove she’s scamming.

User Cyoung1678 has a posting for a small
Women’s 2018 Trek Fuel Ex 5 for $750, and it is a scam. I tired to pay over Venmo, but my account was frozen (we thought it was because I just purchased a bike and it thought my spending was unusual) so we paid on cash app. She has said she will get tracking out to me today, but never marked the bike as sold which I though was weird and then ghosted. I used another of my accounts to ask her if the bike was still available, and she responded that it was and is willing to sell again to the other account. She doesn’t know that both accounts are me. We have filed a complaint with CashApp and are reporting her here to try to recover the $810 total.

This guy did the same thing as usual... reached out about my wanted ad. Brand new account, poor grammar, lazy typing, and sent me some random email address to contact about it. Same scammer bit as usual.

Hey, I paid Cyoung1678 for that Trek Fuel on October 28th. She gave me the run around about shipping. Hasn’t shipped or is unwilling to refund my payment. Any hep is appreciated.

I thought you were supposed to use paypal G/S only to avoid scammers?

https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/3197539/ scam.

really needs to be a cool-down for making new accounts and posting ads.

This guy has been doing this for months now, saves 3 pics, female profile pic and puts his age as mid 30's.

It’s a shame a known scammer is allowed to go on here for so long

It looks like I have been scammed.

https://m.pinkbike.com/u/StepAhead/

I sent money for https://m.pinkbike.com/buysell/3189484/ last Wednesday. Seller said it would ship Friday 10/5. Responded Saturday that it didn't ship yet. He told me it shipped on Monday but never sent me the shipping details and has now ghosted me.

I started the PayPal resolution yesterday.

Only thing I dislike about Pinkbike is the fact it takes so long for them to remove these f*cking scammers from buy/sell and forums. They should recruit much more moderators in my opinion for buy/sell and forums.

I offered time and time again and each time got refused, it is without doubt a huge issue with limited support and / or commitment from the mods. All buyers can do unfortunately is be vigilant

Listed size large DeLano Peak in excellent condition. Delivered the bike "kind of as pictured." But, it was a medium and actually in poor condition.

https://m.pinkbike.com/buysell/3176707/

Forced to make PayPal case as have received no response since having sent the bike back 7-days ago. No refund either.

Actually detailed the bike and sent back as a sign of good faith. However, this seller sent a bike with no serial numbers. Maybe that's not a good sign?

Same account... just changed the username and profile pic... then sent me another copy and pasted scam message with a new email address contact. Sent the info to Isaac Schmidt several days ago and haven't heard back.

The site is getting overrun with scammers and they aren't getting banned half the time... it's a shame to see.

Was messaging a guy here to buy a tool from him. I asked him for his PayPal email, and he just gave me his PayPal username. I could not find him on PayPal with just that so I asked him for his email and he got back to me with “lol nice try. You’ve been flagged as a scammer my dude”. I was able to find the username after adding @gmail.com, but I’m not sending money without confirming his account first…

My question is, will I really be marked as a scammer and will this effect my account. Not sure how the process works, but really don’t understand why he would have reported me or how pinkbike would confirm if I am a scammer.

Thanks
