    Somehow I suspect this prospective buyer may not be totally
    all the information he requests is in the ad on the GWRRA website.

    Hello Seller
    My name is Ben Bruce a resident of 45 Charles Street East,

    Suite 704 Toronto ON M4Y 1S2 in Canada I came across

    your advert and am highly interested in Purchasing your

    Goldwing which you offer for sale. and first of all i will

    like to ask u some questions about the item firstly..

    (1) Are u the first owner of the item?
    (2) How old is it?
    (3) What is the asking price of it ?
    (4)Do u have the pictures of the item?
    (5)Why do u wanna sell it?

    and i will also like to know if u will accept certified check for

    the payment and i will also like to tell u that i have my shipping

    company who takes good care of my goods so don`t bother

    yourself about the shipping arrangement so if u are alright

    with all this kindly get back to me asap.

    Total scam. He wants to give you a bogus check.

    That's exactly what I thought when I noticed that all
    the info the asked for was in the ad for the bike.
    I would have to handle that check with asbestos gloves
    and his shipper would be here before the check was
    caught as counterfeit.
    I'll wait on someone local to come along with cash. Or
    just ride it once a week to keep if from going "stale".

    Just tell him you'll commit the bike shipment once
    the certified check has been converted to USD
    cash, in your account.

    Or, he can purchase a certified check from your
    bank, via a phone call from his CDN address.

    That should raise his interest. <g>

    Yes, I understood that all-too-common angle.

    And I suppose that's probably where it's going.

    But, I chose to adhere to the simple purchase
    transaction because I've never really understood
    how anyone that walks upright could be taken
    into such a ruse.

    Personally, I think it would be interesting to
    "play along", just to see how this unfolds.
