update: this was my plan all along, the pics aren't of the same wheels or I've opened them and smashed them up (obviously found a way to rust the internals within an hour of receiving them too) and I'm attempting to scam him - particularly as I told him to always make sure goods and services go the PayPal registered address as a common scam is to get people to send stuff to a different one. I've done a PayPal claim with the pics(luckily although he's wiped the advert I screen-shotted the description of 'good conditon' and 'used - like new') and added the same pics as on here....I take it they'll tell me to send them back (i can claim return postage through PayPal) and they'll take the money off him - or he'll also somehow keep is money!
Did you get your money back in the end?
yeah, very straightforward tbh and within a couple of weeks....He asked me to send them to a random address to which I obviously said no but I was happy to post them back to his registered at my cost which PayPal 'returns on us' would have reimbursed anyway. He literally just went quiet and I donated the rims to the LBS which I think they used for a trainee to rebuild.
Is this looking a bit dodgy? I had a search of the bike registry But couldn’t see any definitive matches. It was listed at £100 yesterday but they’ve upped it to £400 now.
That looks extremely stolen.
https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/370892628390773/ nothing particularly suspicious apart from the typo in vigorelli and the lack of details.
52cm vigorelli with “fast as fuck” written on the front wheel if that ring a bell?
More wrong than there is right about this one 🤷🏻♂️
I see quite a lot of people riding about with upside-down drop bars. Never understand how/why? Surely you'd look at other bikes and think 'something's wrong here'?
Does this seem legit?
