There was an add on craigslist for a 2004 Honda VTX 1300 for $2900. I knew it seemed too good to be true, but I thought I'd look into it. With the economy being the way it is and considering that the bike was supposedly located in an economically depressed area, I was really hoping that someone was just hard up for cash and the deal was legit. So I sent an email and this is the reply I got:


"The price is $2850.
This bike is a real 'head turner' and it will make you proud, it is in excellent condition,never been involved in accidents,1300cc ,only 4,500 miles, VIN:1HFSC55094A004432 clean and clear title,no mechanical problems,no scratches,flaws or any kind of damage,all functional and it will need nothing in the near future.
I have the bike sealed at DAS terminal in Whittier,CA ready to be shipped out will take 4-5 days through DAS and it will be free,my previous buyer(his loan did not get approved)already paid for it and DAS didn't want to refund him the shipping fee.
I cannot meet face2face I have a new job in Tucson, AZ I would like to use Autotrader Vehicle Purchase to take care of this deal, smooth and safe. Let me know if you have any other questions, hope i didn't miss anything.

Thank you,Brandon."


At this point I knew it was bogus, so I did a little research and apparently this scam has been going on for some months now and has been listed all over the country. The bike, pictures, and email responses are all the same, but the name and email address changes every time.
