|+1 David Robin at it Again! |
As reported here, If you look him up on this site or many others dealing with online scams, you'll see David Robin. He/they try to run a scam on anyone selling a motorcycle. Posted my bike for sale. Within 10 mins, I got a text asking if the motorcycle was still available and its condition. I responded and instantly got a "I'll take it, but I have to pay via PayPal and I'll have a mover pick it up" Its the same scam that's been documented here. They try to "buy" motorcycles via paypal, they don't try to bargain, they ask the bike's condition and then say I'll take it. They/He of course has to pay you via paypal and of course they are across the country from you. In my case he was at Hanscom AFB in Bedford, MA. As soon as I asked for an address and his air force specialist code(I was in the Air Force), they bailed out of the scam and never responded with another text. I never got him to send me the phony paypal email.
IF someone is willing to buy a motorcycle sight unseen from across the country at full price and can only pay via paypal. Its a scam!
