Sent me a fake eTransfer email. It looked real but all the links take you to a website NOT FROM INTERAC!
The 'interac' email came from: JANETTE BROWN janettebrown4513@gmail.com

For example the 'view in browser' link in the email takes you to: https://clck.ru/36XBLx

Also, the user joined PB just a day before they messaged me which was suspicious.

Check the URL. Most of the links don't work.

If an E-transfer request doesn't offer you the in app option, it's a phishing scam.

Hi Craig,

I'm interested in the Yeti you have for sale. Can you tell me more about it. Why are you getting rid of it. I'm coming off a SB130 and would like to hear your impression of the 140LR. Are there any issues? I think I saw that it has not been registered yet?

Thanks

I’m selling simply because I didn’t get to ride this year due to various different reasons, and I get a new one every year regardless.I had last generations 140 LR and I loved it, it was AMAZING. This bike takes it to the next level. I’m not saying that as a selling technique, the bike is truly amazing. It handles great, it pedals over/through anything you throw at it. It goes up well, down well, all around one of the best bikes you can buy. I’ve owned Santa Cruz, Ibis, and Yeti’s and I wouldn’t go any other direction. The floating pivot system is amazing. The infinity link does a great job of keeping the bike feeling stable and centered. It allows for the bike to feel like it’s “level” while encountering any sort of terrain. The factory suspension makes a big difference as well. The Grip damper up front gives you ALL the adjustments you could want. Same with the Rear Float X. All adjustments are numbered so you can easily set the bike for different places. It works together so well. You ABSOLUTELY can’t get a better bike than a 140LR. The bike has ZERO issues. It has been ridden once. There is no ride wrap or protective film on there. On that note it looks like it is sitting on a shop floor so the frame is still so clean that you could install or have one installed and it would look perfect

It was purchased Feb 15 of this year. I bought through Yeti’s program for people who work in the industry. It was ordered through their website but was delivered as a normal bike and was built from the frame up. I have the receipt from them. It’s never been registered for warranty either. As you’re buying it second hand you won’t get a technical warranty, but I always tell people if you buy a bike from me and something ever happens if you reach back out I’ll file a claim for it as still being mine with my receipt and get you taken care of. I always extend the offer, fortunately every bike I’ve ever sold has been solid and I’ve never had to do it for someone but I would be happy to help if it’s needed down the line. It has upgraded XO1 cassette and shifter as the stock is GX. It has an extra 15mm of steerer tube cut on top of the stock 25mm (40mm total) to use as an adjustment. The bike is currently at my work and the manual packet is rubber banded to the seat which has the serial numbers. I’d be happy to send if you’re a serious buyer once I get back to work tomorrow.

Hi Craig,

Thanks for the thorough reply. I would appreciate the serial #s as I would like to register it with Yeti if possible. As stated, I am coming off a SB130. Its just time to get into a new bike. Are looking at replacing this SB140LR with another one. What is the bike shop that you are working at/through. How have sold previous bikes? Pinkbike? Definitely interested! Thanks again for the info.

Thanks again,
Travis

tried to work with two accounts that seemed legit to buy an aethos frameset. Both sent me paypal links that ended up in invoices from PIPO - TikTok. Looking through reddit, looks like its a pretty widespread scam. Working with PP to get a refund. Both seemed like normal humans in our interactions and then ghosted me after paying.

Hello I am having a similar experience. No replies since pmt made. Same exact format as you had mentioned. Did you just file a PP or did you also contacted your CC? thank you.

How is PP handling this for you?

Just found out that the seller "deluxe bikes" has been marked as verified scammer?

I bought 2 groupsets, other smalls bits etc and they were all shipped fast, packaged well and great prices too.

What changed? His website is still on and you can order stuff directly from there. I'm confused why he got banned from here.

It’s been 5 days and the seller has now deleted the sale/ad listing.
Any suggestions? I don’t want others to become the next victim

Did not want to do this.

Seller: heptipa89 still has an ad listed.

Hit the "REPORT" button on the seller to alert PB moderators.
