A few weeks ago I decided to sell my bicycle. It was a really sweet ride, that I bought when I was living out in Calgary. I just wasn’t getting enough use out of it here, and I’ve moved to a place where I have to store it outside uncovered. And for occasional bicycling, BIXI came along this summer. I posted this ad on Craigslist.
This was the first response I got:
Thinking it was a sincere inquiry, I wrote back:
And what follows is our ongoing conversation:
I guess she’s a fan of CCR or Three Dog Night.
I then received this e-mail with very official looking shipping company graphics (click to enlarge):
Wow, that’s easy…I send all the money to you, before shipping my bicycle. More after the jump…
More from “Maria”
Wow…surprise! She likes it. I didn’t write back for a day.
Uh-oh! Now she’s gonna report me to PayPal for fraud.
I Finally sold my bicycle, but not to Maria. And I’ve hired an expensive team of lawyers, while I wait to be served with official lawsuit papers.
