Hello, Thank you for your message. The bike is available and is in perfect shape,no mechanical issues, no scratches, no dents. 2011 model, Kawasaki Ninja 250,only 1.800 miles, 250cc engine. clear title, free of any liens or loans on it, under my name.. Was garaged all the time at home, no kind of problems!. The price is $1.000, final price! Anyway, if the price is good, let me know. I can send you pictures if you want.
Thank you, Kathryn
Hi again, the thing is I'm selling this bike because my husband passed away not long ago (he was very sick) and this bike brings me bad memories and that's the reason why I want to sell it asap...I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my parents in Topeka,KS trying to start a new life. The bike is already at the shipping company in the container, sealed and ready for delivery.. The bike is there already because someone agreed to buy it, but in the end he never got the loan. For this reason, the shipping is already paid. I will use Google Wallet in this transaction for our protection. If you are not aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the bike before paying me. The inspection period will be set to 5 days and I think is enough for you to make a decision about the bike.If you won`t like my bike, you notify Google Wallet and you send the bike back on my expense. But I assure you it won't be the case. If you want to continue the purchase, please reply with your full name, delivery address and phone number so I can start the transaction with Google Wallet and ask them to send you the terms of this transaction. ( with no further obligation or fees).

It was just a craigslist add for a 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 250r for $1000. The scammer uses google wallet as their transaction. Gave scammer delivery address and phone number. Scammer sent a google wallet invoice. After looking at it knew it was phony and just didn't look legit. Did not send money cause I knew something was phishy. Also reported this person on the BBB as a scam.

Sob story about a dead husband and wants to sell the motorcycle to move on. The bike is "already" at a shipping container ready to ship. I don't know how "she" happens to afford to pay for the bike to sit at a container!!! Oh I forgot to mention, she has three motorcycles up for sale all with different backgrounds in the photos (obviously from different houses), but she can afford to keep all three at a shipping container. What a badly planned scam, I wonder if she's really a "she"!
