BEWARE OF SCAM offering to buy for more than you ask

Postby Dave Joynson » 8 Aug 2017, 4:59pm

Hi
Beware of a scam where a person... Xavier River... wants to buy your bike for more than your asking price.
He appears to live abroad and offers to send you a cheque for a lot more than you are asking to cover a courier who will collect your bike.
This has happened twice to me on both bikes I have put up for sale over the course of 2 years. The first time he sent the cheque and repeatedly urgently requested us to cash it. We didn't and sent the cheque to the bank in France where it supposedly came from explaining our scam fears...we heard no more.

He appears to be at it again !
Beware !
