lmfao. a $10k~15k ebike bike for $3500? You guys kill me.


Turbo Levo SL 2022 cost 4,900 brand new, that's why I was tricked by the scammer (3,500 used)

in your original post you said "Specialized Turbo Levo SL S-Works level custom build (22)". Those are not $4,900 new.

Dude insists he will only accept cash in person and that I drive to him. Offered to do Venmo, PayPal, Zelle when in person and the bike was in hand - but he says cash only. Sketchy AF

And then see his listing has two different bikes posted as the same (different fork) - super sketchy.

Face to face for cash is "super sketchy"? Sounds like the safest way to do a transaction to me. What am I missing? And can't you communicate without using an abbreviation for the word "f*ck," trash-mouth?

Someone is making multiple accounts on Pinkbike, all based in different, small towns and cities in Canada, and posting buysell adds for MTB frames. I tried to buy one off him and eventually got the full amount refunded from PayPal. But I’m all but certain he’s made multiple accounts since then as is keeping the scams rolling. Doing a GIS of the images in his adds general finds eBay listings from overseas, often active, from which they were pulled. Feel like Pinkbike could be doing a better job of banning this guy or cross referencing images posted. Anyway, I’ll post the adds as I find them here.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/175453710600

Pretty sure this is him too but GIS doesn’t return any results:

Same story still going on!

I got ripped off from a guy selling a frame from a small town in Alberta.. He knew all the details about the frame and seemed legit. I can't believe I got scammed after using the buy/sell for decades..

In the process to get money back but not looking likely..

Be careful out there!

Scammer with multiple accounts in Canada. " Starzypher" accepted payment and then deleted account, for a road bike frame. Currently has at least one more account with similar ad details, " Jayntrix ".

https://www.pinkbike.com/u/Jayntrix/

Active now. Different locations on the accounts. Possible to notify people interacting with this account?

I'm posting to report a seller who is selling multiple frames, all as scams. This seller is reposting ebay or other listings on here as his own and selling frames he does not have. Below I have linked the frame I purchased as well as two frames he has listed as "sold" on pinkbike and their matching active ebay listings.

gex9d had a listing that the price was too good to be true. I offered to buy it and he sent me his PayPal info but when I asked more questions and for more pics he deleted his account and stopped communicating. Can you please look in to this? Thanks!

Scammer Alert!!! verified!!!
https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/3503468/
I bought this bike from user Angusaa on Sunday the 4th, paid via paypal through my wife's paypal account. He asked for proof that it was me, sent him some screen shots to prove it was me that paid him. He then says it will take 3 days to ship, all good. I start to ask him for a photo of it being boxed up, some kind of progress pics, and he refused. I then created a new account to inquire if the bike was still for sale, he replies back yes it is. At that point I called him out saying that I already paid him under my wife's account, he then replies back, please dont report me to Paypal. I have started a claim with paypal and am posting this here for other's awareness.

What other course of action do I have if he doesnt send me my money back??

You’re doing everything right, don’t back down and communicate only through PayPal, screen shot the advert too if you haven’t already for evidence, you paid goods right ?

Yes PayPal goods, have all my screen shots of all communications. He has blocked me on here, and the add is still up for sale.

Sounds like the same scam that got me, Disoute with paypal and your credit card. I would go ahead and freeze your credit now as this is all to get personal info. from you to steal identity and open credit in your name.
