I have not been scammed but would like to know what to do about a likely scam. some guy offers a mountainbike ($5000 retail) for $2000 on craigslist. he has pics of it in front of a garage. however with everything that looks too good to be true this MTB is listed in ten cities. i responded from my yahoo spam email account saying im interested. now the guy writes back saying he is a army sargent and the bike is in california and he does the deal through ebay's vehicle purchase program because it's safe for me. i would pay ebay and he ships the bike and I have five days to look at it before ebay releases the funds. obviously bicyles are not covered in the ebay vehicle purchase program and I don't think ebay holds my money for five days. the guy just takes the money while I wait for the bike. so here are my questions: how does the guy get to the money without leaving a paper trail/address? how do I report this to ebay because I thing he is using a fake or hacked account? right now I have no real ebay ID from him so I can't report him. is there a way to make this guy's live miserable? let's say pretending to have sent the money to reno nevada so that he drives all the way up there for nothing or such?
