List members,

I've been contacted by someone using list a members name who is from the US, but the fellow says he's from the UK. He's offered me a complete 1950 Hetchins Magnum Opus Phase One for GBP150, and a complete 1970 Magnum Opus Phase Two for GBP200. The fellow swears he's in the UK, but the bikes are in Madrid. He insists on my full address for shipping, and will only take a bank check, or bank transfer. I tried the phone number he gave and he did answer, but no descrimination intended, but for someone who daid he was Brittish, he strangely sounded very Nigerian, plus his writing contained many spelling errors. We talked for a few minutes and he was obviously having a hard time understanding me. The prices are too good to be true so this wreaks of scam, so to list members, please be careful.
