Person said, they were in the military and had to sell the motorcycle fast for they were about to deploy over seas.The ad was for 1500, so I offered to meet and they said they were on base with the bike.

They told me they would set shipping and payment up on ebay, and would perfer to take payment in itunes card. Sounds legit. They sent pics and the ebay info over. I did my part and received confirmation that everything was good to go.

Today ,I get a email from ebay saying that thay need 1000 more dollars to continue shipping. Sounds like a scam. The number that they are claiming is ebay support is 408-890-2276, which is in California, but ebay customer service number starts with 866. Sounds like I've been had.

Sucks cause now im out of 1500. Will never do this again.

Not to mention they said that their husband passed away 4 months ago.The name they used was Adelle Mountuy.

This comment just saved me so much. I iniquired about a Range Rover and got a veryyyyy similar message to the one you got. Husband passed away 4 months ago, she's selling it cheap because she's going away to another country for a year with her team and doesn't want to pay for it to be in storage. Sorry for what happened to you! People suck

Same thing happened to me and when I reported it to OfferUp they blamed me for my 'mistake'. They refuse to take the ads down saying they can't monitor everything and some stuff just slips through. Apparently a lot slips through and they don't care as long as they get paid. A total rip off. Avoid them.

Same EXACT thing happened to us but for a vehicle. They used the military story, but their loved one died and they couldn't bare to look at his car any more! $2k is what they got us for. And we were so proud we were getting a descent car for our daughter. Shame on them!!
