I believe this guy to be a scammer. Answered a wanted ad of mine with a 41 Schwinn. Only accepts bank transfers and won’t allow for a local pickup. If I’m wrong I’m truly sorry. Here’s the bike. 1300$ shipped next day delivery.

Hold the phone!!!!!
I just googled "1941 Schwinn blue and white bicycle" ...images...and got THIS!
Isn't that the bike? There's a site Dave's Vintage Bicycles where he shows pictures of bikes. I believe that's where "seller" got picture.
Bait him via the authorities!!!!!

Looks to be worth a lot more than $1200.00 unless I am missing something.
Why would someone sell such a nice bike for that cheap?

FYI, the fact that the same pics can be found on the internet, doesn't necessarily mean anything. I have done google image searches and found pictures of some of my bikes, that I took myself, and posted on the CABE.

Yeah, I listed a bike local c/l last evening and got 3 different responses by morning, all scammers. Two texts: 'The wife wants it, email back @gmail', 2. 'is it still for sale, reply to; @gmail' and 1 responding threw c/l. again saying "Reply to; @gmail' all within 12 hours.

Of these, U can only report scammers that use the reply via C/L email messaging system .
The text msg's from high-jacked VOIP numbers are useless, no reporting or security features. .

The criminals are out in droves at C/L.

At some point, CL will have to do what eBay has done, securing all communication strictly through their system or app. The crooks ruin everything!

I still say ,around here at least, if you know someone is a scammer and report it to police they can bait him and put a stop to it.
