Hmz, looks more serious than that scam with Cristian Frisoni's bike...... but if a WW member would sell his bike he would post it here on the forum of course :)
Whow! That's a pretty damn nice garage door!

I don't really get why somebody does this - are they hoping for some sucker sending out that ammount of money wihout any assurance? That would still be trackeable in most cases, i think?

The seller says to live in London. Nino lives in Switserland!

I've reported the scam to ebay.

It's got to be a scam. No seller with 0 feedback is listing something like this; Nino is not in London; and the text is verbatim from his Light-Bikes post, with no additional info.
I suppose some people hope someone will PayPal them, and then they'll be gone, change ID again, etc. It could be traceable, I suppose, but if you spent the money do you think someone would really make the effort to track everthing down and get it back to you?
Down with fraudsters! :unbelievable:

I emailed the seller and asked if both wheelsets were included. He responded

yes.
i want to sell this bike for 700£.
Shipping included in the price.
have a nice day !

his email ends with yahoo.co.uk

I agree, I think it's a scam.

It's a scam cause Nino removed the stickers from those rims long ago.
