I have always been careful with ebay and PayPal because of scams, however I have bought and sold without problems so far and so may it continue. In fact I bought my V-Strom off ebay and all went well. Just be very careful, have those discussions and check their feedback and details before parting with your hard earned cash!! :thumb:

I have had no trouble buying off ebay but I always go and look at the bike first and collect and pay at the same time if I like it, but I never say I have the cash with me and it is never on my person, you can normally smell a rat if something is wrong, just walk away.

The very same thing happened to me on a BMW forum. Sound advice indeed, nothing worse than paying and not receiving.

The only thing these scam ads work on is greed so, if something is too good to be true it usually is.

There's been a DL650 on Gumtree around these parts that comes and goes under a different name, great pics, seamless history, should be 3k all day long, listing is £1,700.....you just know.
