Hey guys,

I bought a wheel from lucass a North Van local on Buy and sell last Tuesday. It doesn't fit my bike. Partially my fault for not checking when I picked up the wheel that it was 148mm rear hub. But in my search I filtered for 148mm and his listing came up. I should have double checked but its 157mm. I'm pretty sure he lied in his listing but I'd really like to double check that detail.

I want to see the listing but he deleted it as soon as deal was done.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO SEE A DELETED LISTING??

His pictures are still up but listing gone. If I can see the listing then I can confirm he was scamming with a BS hub width that is 10X more sellable than the 157mm width. It could be my fault entirely though and maybe he had the correct width listed?!? Need to see the Listing to be sure.


But Im pretty sure he had it in as 148mm.
Also wanted to meet at neutral site despite the fact we live in the same neighborhood.
Wanted cash only, which is understandable.
Had a bit of a sketchy look about him and since this experiance I looked him up in this thread and he has a reputation of transactions with negative experiances. He has sold LOTS of stuff so a few bad transactions may be perfectly reasonable but I really want to know if he purposely lied.

Thanks in advance!!

No need to shout, this isn't exactly the most popular thread out there and people aren't on here all the time Mate (still too much traffic though Razz )

No, you can't. And some people use rulers for their measurements and he may have just got it wrong although with everything he's sold I doubt it.. But it is strange he deleted it instead of marked it 'Sold'. Which user?

Thanks for the response man, sorry about the yelling!

I mad at myself and him. Seems like he's had a few people who weren't happy with their transactions.

Does PB ever look at this stuff? I'm sure the page is cached away somewhere?

Cheers mate

Again thanks for responding. Any thoughts on this transaction and on the seller in general?

Cheers,

I didn't really think you were yelling Razz No worries. Since he actually deleted the ad I would say he was up to no good, but since it's really doubtful the mods would think (I wouldn't think so either to be honest) that it would be worth looking up that ad just to the hub size I would sell the wheelset and buy another one. Is it in decent condition?

If so it's either a huge coincidence and he made the wrong ad and accidentally deleted it, ...or he just needs to admit he F'ed up and trade you back *ahem*

And Damn he's been on there a long time, since I was born and no followers?

. Pay attention to the shipping address.

Google reviews of the business I was going to ship the bike to.
What was the scam? Did they not actually pay you into your paypal account?

Read the google reviews about the address I was going to ship the bike too, they collect the items then try to say it wasn't the product they received and or they say it was never received. 10 plus reviews of that stuff happening off ebay, so yes its a scam.

Cool, I'll check outbtje reviews. I wasnt questioning whether it was a scam, just how. As i am seeling my bike here and i have a biyer in Bulgaria (im in uk) , it could be legit, but some things making me nervous.

I have learned to google addresses and phone numbers before shipping.
