damages, no hidden defects, ready for ride, it has only 2,000 original km on it price : 120.000 .This Yamaha YZF , wide tire kit, extended swing arm is spotless in every way: no
scratches, no dents, no rust, never been laid down.I have all the keys and original manuals.My name is Travelier Hapian and i'm a Spanish architect.
I bought this bike from India this year when I work there to make some project with a big big Indian company from New Delhi.You have a wonderful country.The bike is registered on me name in India has indian number plates , insurance finish in 04.01.2013. you will have no problem to register the bike .

After that I made a reply with few questions and then got a reply the next day, this is reply below : -

2. eBay Motors as usual has done to my bike a general inspection to be sure that the bike is in very good condition, has no problem and can be transported to your address in India without no problem .
3. At this point you'll have make a security deposit 120.000 Rs(BANCK DEPOSIT ). to eBay Motors,the company have to be sure that you have the money for the bike according to the instructions from the invoice. This will be a guarantee that they don't send an agent all the way to India for nothing.

I will explain you ...

General rule of thumb...
Whenever the deal needs an explanation it's a scam.

Is this an honest-to-God scammer posting on a scam exposure site? Wow, now that takes some brass.

To the OP, yes, it's a scam through and through. There is no "E-Bay Motors" that works that way, they don't escrow money. Look for a real deal that's local to you.

I usually stop reading when they state it's "free and clear". When they start off saying that everyting is good, no dings, dents, or in this case "aesthetically intact", click delete and move on.

Scam.

Re: Olx.in scam, nothing to do with eBay at all.

If you are not buying on the eBay Motors Web Site »www.ebay.com/motors then eBay is not involved at all and you are talking to a scammer. Period, no chance that it is real.

Alert: Auto scams on Craigslist and other online classified ad sites

eBay's Vehicle Purchase Protection covers only certain vehicle transactions that are completed ON eBay.com. If a Craigslist seller "promises" you eBay protection programs, walk away. It is fraudulent. Learn more.

Common warning signs:

•A great deal that sounds too good to pass up
•Seller can't meet in person because of a number of reasons (i.e., they are a soldier in Iraq or they left the vehicle in a "local shipping company")
•Seller claims to have made arrangements with eBay's Vehicle Purchase Protection or Finance Centers
•Seller requests payment by money wire via Western Union or MoneyGram

Public place?

He has no intention of ever meeting you. You deposit the money, he takes it. Game over.
