So have advertised a motorbike for sale on Trading post. I have been in conversation with a buyer.

He is at Sea an oceanographer.

We have agreed on a price and he has tried to organise a courier. He needs a credit card to organise an online payment, however left it at home. He is including the 650 AUD COURIER FEE with the payment of the bike. Thing is, I have to then go find a western union office and pay the fee, before they will organise a pickup time.

Wife is a bit worried that what happens if we have to pay any thing extra.

Thoughts??

I would have loved to have played along with

 

my goal would have been to try and ask him to be more pacific about some of his questions, definitely used things like asking him if he wanted to sea the bike 

Hopefully he would have found our time conversing special and we would be come friends, and maybe lovers and then he can take me to his work on the ocean

yep scam

 

Golf industry had similar one last year going around a few clubs http://www.golfindus...ing-golf-clubs/

 

as well my wife was selling something on Gumtree- and same set up as yours- red flags all went off.

 

Must still get some people as they still running them.

Ha I still remember a few years back I won a lottery for $100 million pounds. However I had to pay the $1500 service fee to release the funds. And you guessed it Western Union money transfer.

As Rob said Western Union is a straight up red light Col
