I assume others are getting these too. I saw them for 4 wheeled vehicles as long ago as 2013 but only recently have I seen them pop up for motorcycles as well. For those not familiar, it works like this: You post your bike for sale and you get a response. If they're stupid or lazy, they'll hit you with the pitch in the first reply, something like this: "Hi, I saw your bike for sale on Craigslist. It looks exactly like what I am looking for. One thing, though, I really need to make sure the bike has a clean history and has never been wrecked. I recommend you run a report at [insert no-name VIN history web site here]. It only costs $20 which is half the cost of the more popular VIN history reports (they mean Carfax but probably don't want to say it because they don't want to attract the attention of the Carfax legal team.) Most people delete these right away, so now they get a little crafty: They try to lead you on first so you'll believe it's actually a legit reply to your ad. Here's the one I just got from someone who purports to be an "Adam Tallent:" "Hello, I saw the ad about the bike, it looks really nice, and I’m interested in it. Could I maybe come to see the bike in person? Also, do you have a history report that you could send to me? Is there maybe some wiggle room on the price? Hope to hear from you soon! Adam." The part about seeing the bike in person and asking if there is "wiggle room" on the price are cleverly intended to let me believe this is a real response (since that's what a real person might ask.) The part about the "vehicle history report" is buried in between the two other comments. Slick! I knew right away that it was a scam but I was intrigued to see this level of persistence and wondered when he would hit me with the sales pitch, so I responded: "I have the service records from the previous owner but no vehicle history report but I'm not going to get a vehicle history report on a 15 year old motorcycle. It is what it is, if you're serious, then send me an email and I'll let you know when you can come look at it. " Numbnuts hit me with the sales pitch on the SECOND response: "Thanks for the additional info. The thing is I have a really long drive to you so i want to make sure everything is fine with the bike, before I come. That's why I asked for the report..Would it be possible to send me bike history report from (actual address removed).com because my mechanic told me to ask for that one" Ah, but this one has a hint of desperation: "and since I asked for it, I will repay you money for it when i come to look at the bike. If you send me the report and if everything is ok, I could come on Saturday so we can discuss about the price and get everything done. " So this dirtbag is even offering to pay for my VIN inspection - AFTER I get it, of course! MMM hmmmm.....yeah, I'll get right on that, "Adam." I would hope most people are smart enough not to fall for this. And I assume that the web site they direct you to either straight up steals your credit card info or gives you publicly available information and socks you for $20 (and then probably sells your CC information to a 3rd party to rip you off.) Still, wanted to put it out there - in this case we need to modify the old saying and say "Let the SELLER beware!" EDIT: After thinking it over I sent "adam" another email: I said "Why don't I just email you the VIN number and then you can run as many reports as you want?"
