Scammer makes offer to buy motor bike without viewing, pretends to work off shore. Received three emails from people claiming they all work offshore and will get a courier to pick up motorbike. All three had basically the same sort of story. None could make phone contact due to the weather.

Subject: RE: motor bike
Thanks for your mail... Due to nature of my job inspection will not be possible for me ,cus am very busy, as i work for long hours almost everyday, i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with the condition and price of it.
As for the payment.. i will be paying you via one of the fastest and secure way to pay online (PayPal).
My private courier agent will come for the pick up on my behalf after the payment have been made, as they will also be coming with all the information needed.
You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply. If you don\'t have a paypal account, you can easily set up one... just log on to www.paypal.com and sign up. its very easy. I await your reply asap.
