Default Scammer On Ebay!!! Yellow 2004 Cbr 1000rr Do Not Buy!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2004-...QQcmdZViewItem

Okay, this fool is selling a yellow 2004 CBR 1000RR perfect conditions with a buncha upgrades for 2900 Buy it now on Ebay. It sounded extremely weird so I emailed this fool from a phony email and he sends me this response...it would be funny except some moron might actually fall for this:

"Hello,
Thank you for your interest in purchasing my 2004 Honda CBR1000RR. I want you to know that I closed my auction earlier because someone has offered me the buy it now price, but didn't have all the money available.
Now the honda is still available. It is in perfect condition, with no scratches on it, no damage, Always garaged, Always covered. Everything about this honda functions perfectly. Incredible power, handling and reliability. If you are interested in buying, the price is $ 2,900 US.
I had to move with my family in United Kingdom where I got a new job transfer. I brought the honda here with me but when I found out about the very high import duties and all the restrictions regarding registration and emissions tests here I've decided to sell the honda. I want to sell it in US because is still registered there. It is made for US market and has US specs on it. The buyer will receive it along with all papers and receipts that he needs to register it in his name.
The transaction will be done through Ebay for our own protection, no money first to me. I am registered with their secure trader department and they will handle the trade.
Your funds will be 100% insured by Ebay until you will receive and inspect the honda, and I will be sure that I will receive the payment.
You will have 10 days from the time you receive the honda to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.
If you want to buy my honda then e-mail me:
Full name for the title,
Shipping address
As soon as I have this information I'll start the official procedure, and eBay will notify you about this. You'll also receive important guidelines + instructions from them (please go through them exactly). I'll handle the shipping, so this will be free of charge for you.
Looking forward to hearing from you."

Very funny but very sad...

I would have played with him. Gave him my name and had it shipped to a neighbors house. Told him to send the bike first as he said he would and if it was alright pay! But if not tell him to take a flying leap and tell him you never recieved it! Ive had this happend to me many time on craigslist. Just delete all the scamming emails! People will do anything these days! Just dotn understand how they get away with it!

You can tell just by the way he writes that english isn't even his first language and it's supposed to registered in the US? I remember reading about someone actually getting scamed by this exact same senario. You should notify Ebay about this guy. I bet they will shut him down.
