He paid cash and I checked every bill. They are real. I do not trust anyone. Drives my husband nuts since I don't totally trust him either, even after 11 years together.

How does that scam works - the one with the offer to pay you twice as much for the bike?

Ever since I put up my bike for sale, I've got two offers to buy just like that. I mean - I realized it's a scam, but am curious about how it actually works...

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.

There is a high demand in Russia for Kawaskai. They can sell them for a lot more than they pay in the US.

It is Kawasaki. I paid $224 plus an additional $82 for the support plates. Wht sucked is I bought it last November and installed it. Then sold the bike and never even rode with it on.
