Someone will offer to send you "extra" under the auspices of covering shipping. Normally it will be a LOT extra (the more extra, the more screwed you are). They then send you a cashier's check drawn on a foreign bank.
The cashier's check is a forgery... but it actually takes your bank as long as 4 weeks to receive the chargeback from the clearing house.
In the mean time, you've shipped the bike AND send the "change" via Western Union or written a check, which has been cashed. Bang... $5-$10,000 leaves your account, and you have no bike, and there is no way to recover it.
