Advice for online sale?
Hey guys, I need help deciding if this is way too sketchy or not. I am selling my Honda 599 and have received some interest. These are the emails I received, minus any sensitive information. Let me know what you all think.
First email from buyer:
I WISH TO INFORM YOU THAT I AM REALLY INTERESTED TO BUY THE ABOVE ITEM.
PLEASE ET BACK TO ME THE BELOW INFORMATION:
CURRENT CONDITION OF THE ITEM
LAST PRICE, THEN THE REASON YOU DECIDE TO SELL THE ITEM .
PLEASE GET BACK TO ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO THAT WE CAN MAKE THE ARRANGEMENT FOR THE PAYMENT
The current condition is good, the same condition I bought it in last year. I am the second owner of this great bike. The first owner decided she wanted to get into motorcycle riding, but realized it wasn't for her. The bike has minor scratches on each side of the engine, but they are not noticeable unless you are squatting down looking at them up close. It has been garage kept by both the previous owner and myself. The frame is untouched, engine runs perfectly, and it is a great bike to look at. My reason for selling is I need to free up some money and am not riding this bike enough to justify owning it. I can get pictures sent out on Sunday evening showing the minor scratches on the engine. Please get back to me with other questions if you have any.
and the last message from buyer:
Thanks for the mail.
I will like to proceed with payment asap and will like to handle via
my company shipper when you must have gotten your cash at hand.I am
in no rush for pick up of the items till funds are clear at the
bank.My mode of payment will be via Bank Cashier Check drawn on US
Bank.I work with an auditing firm and will not have time to and see it
but i trust in your words and hope it in good condition.I will need
your name and address with valid phone number to send the check to
your address.Kindly delete the advert if my mode of payment is
accepted.I will await your email asap.
Does this sound right? Obviously I would wait until the check clears my bank and funds are in before shipping the bike. Anyone?
