Got to be a way to get back at a scammer.

Can you tell him to ship it, and refuse the COD when it arrives since it will probably be a crated skid of rocks?

Lighten up, Francis. If you can't take some sarcasm, an Internet forum is the last place you should be.

Was thinking getting it shipped to the neighbours house. If bike shows up score if not watch the fun unfold.

The scammers all seem to come up with a new angle all the time.
I just brushed off a couple scammers responding to a craigslist ad I put in to sell a camera and lenses I have.

The fun part is that they make it so obvious.

These things are frustrating. What's even more frustrating is being stuck on the desk on light duty having to take reports from suckers who fall for this crap.
