I just bought a pair of sunglasses(cheap ones) from an user, 2015 old account, I am praying that all goes well, reading all the posts here is scary to buy anything here this days.

https://m.pinkbike.com/u/crystalseth/ can you guys run a background check on this one? Small purchase, sunglasses, wrong tracking number so far, looks suspicious to me, but maybe I am wrong, I never been scammed here "yet".

There's a phone number listed which doesn't match the area but that's not a definite proof of scam. Send a text and see the response, you will get a feel if it's legit or not. Shipping numbers can go wrong if he typed it rather than copying it from somewhere. Not saying it's not a problem but worth doing some legwork. The account seems to have a lot "sold" items too dating back years ago.

Thank you sr. At the end the tracking worked but like I said before, reading this forum makes you distrust anybody. That is a sad feeling honestly

Been DMing with someone for a bike for my daughter and, as recommended, I asked for a quick zoom call to verify legitimacy. Seller said they don't want to do a zoom but will send me videos of herself riding it. Sounds fishy to me, or am I overreacting? Maybe the seller is worried I'm a scammer creep lol. Thoughts?

I've bought and sold successfully on Pinkbike for years and it's more difficult than ever with the amount of scams one needs to weed through. That said, I'm not going to jump into Zoom meetings, Facetime calls, etc. just to prove I'm legitimate - just my two cents on the matter.

I'm not telling anyone to not request these forms of verification, or not to take part in them, but I'd like to think there are other ways to identify whether someone is a turd or not.

Sus to say the least. Is there a way to be sure though?
