Okay, OTF... talk some consumer sense into me, will you?

Have any of you heard anything about this site?

I just chanced across an ad for a bike and followed the links back to the first site. Now, the price of this (and the rest of the ads on that site) just seem too good to be true. So it is, right? Got to be a scam of some kind, surely? Notable that they don't accept Paypal, when that's generally accepted as quick, efficient and safe.

I just wondered if OTF's collective consciousness had links to prove or disprove the scam-ness of this?

That looks well dodgy. No credit card payment and no PayPal.

And a URL like www.ebay118.com is dead suspect.

They're in Beijing.
So...yeah...send 'em some money and they'll send you a Burgman.
Nice bike, though.

Yep - it's the kind of thing we'll be seeing tales of on consumer programmes/websites soon, isn't it?

Shame, though - I could do with a bike at those prices! :-)
