does this sound fishy ?
came across this today , so i inquired about it


http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/mcd/3204779448.html

here was the reply , you tell me

Hey,

I have a low price for my 2007 Suzuki GSX-R (1,900 including delivery to your home address), because I want to sell the bike very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this bike brings me bad memories and that's the reason that I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details (name and address) for the shipping.


Thanks

Yes, if someone else is selling it for her what does it matter when it gets sold....and it's been removed. So yeah and happy to serve you on behalf of the PNWRiders external brain assistantance program. Is there anything else we can help you with today sir?

Sounds like that scam about having a storage rental holding a bike for sale that the seller can't be around to arrange cause of work abroad bullshit. Maybe legit but sounds contrived. It can't hurt to make contact though.

You should probably inquire about these two nearly identical ads as well. I mean, a scammer couldn't possibly be selling three bikes at once, could he??

Suzuki GSX-R 600 (R6) sport motorcycle 2006 - $1970 (seattle)
http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/mcy/3206267267.html

2007 Suzuki GSXR 600 - $1900 (seattle)
http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/mcd/3205787159.html

Dude, your an Idiot (JK). You should have offered her $2000 and asked her and her daughter to give you a blowjob! Then it would have been a good deal.

Yes It's a Scam! We seriously need Chris Hansen Catching a Motorcycle Predator!
