Hi you have been contacted because you have a classified advertisement on our website Cyber Cyclery.

We have been advised by some of Cyber Cyclery members with bike classifieds of a fraud scam when contacted about their advert. Please take care and do not be taken by this activity. Basically you are contacted by a person interested in you bike, the offer is to pay you by cashiers check by some one in your country that owes them money. The check is sent to you and you are ask to deduct the price of the bike and transfer the rest of the money to them asap. The idea being you will transfer money to them before you find out the cashiers check is a forgery.

For full incident report please see our news article. http://www.cybercyclery.com/Members/steve/1057047527/1057239094

Thank you and happy riding.
