New Scam to avoid

Postby carlo » Wed Mar 15, 2017 6:21 am

I was cruising the inter web for nortons, came across a highly restored custom 750 commando, there was 2 k in custom paint , E start, all polished..etc, had to be 10-11 in this machine excluding labor, price 4350$ firm- I snickered as I played along, and was not disappointed in the twist of events to secure "said" bike- phony name, tale of woe, and since this engineer was heading back to the oil rigs in the gulf, the transaction had to go thru nmc-global.com. rather impressive that website is, really seems to address all the shipping concerns you would have if you found yourself interested in a seemingly "good deal "- for kicks I called the number, but :wink: mysteriously, all I got was a recording...and there seems to be a lot of these 4k ish Commando's on OODLE... just passing along-

EXACTLY, and in dialoguing with the "alleged" oil rig operator owner, he had a pretty good knowledge of the Commando, and there wasn't any middle eastern dialect in his writing, they are sharpening their craft-

Any chance this is where you found the "deal"? http://light-classifieds.com/
When I chased down a bike off this site, the owner wanted me to deal with this company: http://aykamtransport.com/howitworks.php
Which is a clone of nmc-global.com, with a name change.

Maybe I'm confused but it appears that Grandpauls beautifully restored JPN that sold recently on ebay is on that site for $5000.

This site contains many (or all) phoney listings. The photos are recycled from earlier bone fide listings on other sites.
This is where I found the cool Norton International with the price to be too good to be true: http://light-classifieds.com/details.php?id=1948 . After emailing the guy I was told he works on the oil rigs but just send the dough to a phoney escrow site.
I feel sorry for a real oil rig worker trying to sell a real motorcycle.

It happens world wide, scammers every where, they even contact you if your selling but wait till the auction is over, how many have been foolish enough to fall for these scum bags, they even try to send fake Paypal invoices thinking you open their attachments insread of going straight to your Paypal account, you just got to be one step ahead of them, if its to good to be true be very aware.

Tell them you want to come and collect it and pay cash then watch them try to wiggle out of it if they are not genuine :idea:
