BSer: 133B
BSer: How far r u now?
Me: Ok are you going to meet me off the exit?
Me: I'm 13 miles away
BSer: Yeah at McDonalds right off the exit
Me: Ok
Me: Can we meet at wawa
BSer: Yeah thats fine
BSer: U almost there?
Me: On we are about to pull in
*15-20 minutes later*
Me: How long till you get here
BSer: Im here
*We ask his wife to check it out in the bed of the truck because unloading and loading is a pain. After 25 minutes he asks us to unload it to cycle through the gears and really see how heavy it is. So we unload it. After sitting on it and checking the lights turn signals and telling me how its only worth $2500 and a 2012 is for sale with the same miles with an aftermarket exhaust and flush mount turn signals for only $20 more for another 15 minutes he says ok well she wants it so let's make a deal. So I say great let's do some paperwork and payment. He then wants me to knock $200 off the price, so I remind him that we decided on $3,000 and that's why I drove it down here. Then he says a few things one of the more notable being, so let's do $2800 cause you wouldn't want to waste a trip down here for nothing. At this point Tommy and start loading the bike*
*five minutes after he leaves*
BSer: Have fun riding back
*so to have some fun on the ride back I may have sent the following to every ninja 250 Craigslist poster:

Hey I'm texting you about your bike.

If you get contacted by Andre at 540-497-2692 or his girls number (540) 369-1775, he's a bullshitter in my opinion, he agreed to $3000 for my bike had me bring it down to stafford and then tried to negotiate another $200 off because otherwise it was a waste of a trip. If you want a copy of the texts just ask. Good luck with your sale. He mentioned another bike similar to yours so just wanted to give you some heads up.

I then get a call from him 50 minutes after the last text which I promptly ignore*
BSer: Let me tell u this G if u keep talking to other selling usin my name and number I will have ur ass locked up. U must u stupid im a police officer. Though
BSer: t u should no.
BSer: Have a nice night


G (yes that is my real name)

That sucks man. I guess really the only thing to help prevent that is to get a paypal deposit up front.

I woulda been pissed too. I think it's funny you warned the other sellers.

Some people......


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.

This. When I was selling my R6 a couple weeks ago, I had some dude all hot for it. Even offered me more than the asking price to bring it down to him cuz he lived an hour and a half away. I told him that I'd be happy to but the only way I could it is with a deposit equal to what I'd spend on gas getting there and back in case he didn't want it when I got there. Long story short, deposit never came and next thing you know, he's "getting his lungs checked out cuz he's a smoker and can no longer afford it."

Trying to sell a motorcycle on Craig's list equals opening the door to the following:

Scammers, spammers, low ballers, free joy riders, tire kickers, time wasters, no shows, people that want something for nothing, people that want to make payments (like you are a bank or something), idiots that want to trade their pet gerbil, remote control toy car/truck, bag of marbles etc...

You gotta weed through all this garbage to figure out who is legite. Sorry you got screwed. That guy needed to be picking his front teeth out of his morning dump. Mark the bike up $500 or more and hopefully you will get what you're asking. GLWS

he sounded like a tire kicker starting from this:

"Me: I think it might be easier for me to come tonight.

I never waste my time with time wasters.

I use to be all for meeting up with people to save them time and encourage a purchase but now, if they really want it they can come to me.

Computer parts especially, I get every single low-baller emailing me and 98% of the time I just ignore the emails.

Fuck that. I used to be nice. Now you come to me and don't be late, I will not wait I don't care if there is traffic. I also do not make the meeting spot my house. Any BS and talking shit about this or that during the buying process and I will basically tell the buyer to fuck off and I leave. Been burned way to many times.
Guy sounds like a little bitch. Send him my way.

I get this shit with musical gear. Had a guy meet me to buy a guitar a while ago and show up with 60 bucks less than what we agreed. I packed the guitar up and fucking left.

Write him back and let him know that you will stop using his number, but there is nothing illegal about you informing other sellers about your experience with him and his girl. Also, let him know that if he contacts you again, you speaking to his supervisor and let them know that he is threatening you with arrest and that you are fearful of his "abuse of power".
