Phil: I've had this happen before and had written Dale about it. One offer was blind, offering to buy my collection and pay via wire, and a second one for a particular bike either listed to the CR or Ebay. The buyer offers to pay through a second party, since the buyer lives overseas. A money order is sent for $5000, which the seller is supposeto cash and keep the diffrence for the sale price of the bike and return the difference to the middle man. I had this second scam proposed to me atleast three or four times. i
