Wondering if I should trust this...been trying to sell the Aprilia 125 for a while but why would he be so keen to ship it to the us? and his grammar isn't very good either. I can't figure out if he is wanting to purchase the bike himself or for someone else...


Comments: Greetings,My name is Dr jonny,I hail from US and i am highly
interested in
buying your (BIKE )from you ,I will like you to
give me the ASKING price
and also scan the pics for me for proper verifycation . As for the
shipping,I have a liable shipper that takes goods care of all my
shipping .Cashiers check is the payment method.
So pls email me back so that we can
conclude about it. and i will like you to feed me out
of this info...

A friend sold his bike to a fellow via cashiers check and the buyer evidently beat him to the bank and reported the cashiers check lost (the bank promptly stopped payment).

I say all this to say, there is a level of trust that goes both ways and you already have doubts. :headshake

Some one from America should have a better grasp of the English language. A "liable" shipper?

Sorry man, but avoid that like the plague. Sounds just like one of the South African scams. Not only will he bone you if you try to send the bike, but the more personal info you give up to him, the more you're susceptible to identity theft.

Stay away!

I vote no go.

But you can always enlist the aid of your fellow forum members to try to check him out in advance. What city is he in? Find a forum member who lives there. Etc.

yea- pass.

Sounds like the he gets your bike and you get a cancelled or fake check.

Even if you cash the check 1st and it later turns out to be fake you may be liable for the $$$.

Sounds like he should be called Doctor Proctor because he is trying to screw you with both hands on your shoulders.
Dont do it there are too many Lepers in this world. :rolleyes:

BTW, last I knew I could buy a RS125 Aprilia here.
Used to toy with the idea for a kickaround toy/playbike.
They sell Aprilia and had a RS125 where I bought my 10.

Okay just that the AF-1 (aprilia) forum has a section on the 125 with -NOT A US MODEL next to it???? And then even more reason to suspect this guy...

Great fun bikes, so small and light but absolutely gutless power wise...

maybe it was a gray market, different year or slightly different rs125.
Still that deal is shady. Cash only around here.

It's a ripp off. Ive seen this on EBAY before. They sell it to a third party at the same time and end up taking the third parties money.

I could be wrong but it sure smells of BS.


Its not like there is a shortage of those bikes here that u would pay up to 2000 dollars to have it shipped over here...
