Let's just hope he learned a lesson from this.
At least be up front with it.

"Hey, I'm trying to sell my bike because I want to upgrade, but I've neglected it a little and it doesn't run anymore. Can someone assist me in getting it going, I can't really afford to take it to a shop, and I'd like to get as much as I can out of it"

I know they say it's easier to ask for forgiveness, than ask for permission, but really, in a case like this, laying all your cards out up front is the way to go.

The fact that after he got caught, he had his name changed, that is what irks me, cause that just proves he knew exactly what he did, but probably didn't understand that it also changes all posts you've posted in to the new name...

Really good on you for helping him out, and good on your for not letting this prevent you for helping people in the future.

I musta missed the whole name changed thing.....for me it still says JoshHolland90. What'd I miss?

Did he get canned and make an alt account or something? I was at my buddy's drinking last night and riding a 5 HP chinese scooter all over his neighborhood. Fun times!

Don't want money. I don't like using money for transactions like this. For srsly IRL money is a nuisance and I would prefer it wasn't ever needed but such is life.

It was changed back.

He had it changed to "TheGunShoj" after he put the bike up for sale and got called out on it.
