If you see one of these..

There are 4 or 5 ads right now on eBay trying to sell liners as jackets!! One seller said that this is the perfect lightweight jacket for protection! If you see one of these ask a question and see if you can educate the idiot..

Already been flagged for removal.

If it sounds too good to be true (especially with sidecars) it usually is.

I think I remember seeing that one on eBay a while back. I bid $11k on it but seem to recall being beat out by a couple of thousand.

Based on the e-mail response that sh1bby69 posted above, this is OBVIOUSLY a Nigerian-style scam.

Here is the response I got from "consignment-services.com" on the GS with the sidecar. Quite an elaborate scam.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for contacting Consignment Services. Our records shows that we have a customer Henry Valentine (hvalentine6@gmail.com) selling a 2004 BMW R1150GSA With Ural Sidecar for $6,300.00 on Craigslist.

We also confirm that the above specified item is in our possession and we are handling the shipping, payment and title transfer for this transaction.

You can view the item at www.consignment-services.com click the inventory tab and user the stock number: 66543LIY

Items sold on Craigslist are not available for pick up from our stores. Large items like vehicles, RV's, boats, etc, are being held at our warehouses and will be shipped anywhere in the United States for the price listed on Craigslist or the final price negotiated with the seller.

You have to send a Down Payment of %25 from the sale price prior shipping. As soon as we have the Down Payment confirmation we will start the shipping procedure. The payment must be made using Money Gram to one of Amazon Payment agents. For more informations please visit: Amazon Payments.
If you would like to start a transaction to purchase the above specified item, you must first Register on our website. After the registration is complete and all the information are verified with the seller, we will start the shipping process then we will send you an invoice with the transaction details and payment instructions. In your invoice you will find specific instructions on how to send the payment to one of our Consignment Services Agents. The payment will be made ONLY after the item is received and verified by our customers. You will have a 10 Day Money Back Guarantee available from the day you receive the item and you can decide if the item is exactly as described by the seller. If you find anything wrong with the item, you can return it with no questions asked.

Along with the invoice, you will receive a Transaction ID# which you can use to verify your transaction status here. You can also find important information about your transaction by checking your transaction online.

We hope this answers your query. For other questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,

Eric J. Harwell

Address on Web Site

There is a physical address on their web site:

Consignment Services Headquarters
601 N Highway 175,
Seagoville, TX 75159

It would be interesting to have someone check that address to see what is not there!

Google shows several business at that address. Most telling is the UPS drop box business. prolly just one of those places where anyone can get a street address and pickup mail in thier private mailbox for a fee. Don't you want to deposit your money in the bank at the same address?

    That sidecar was for sale last summer on craigslist Spokane for months . I think he had it listed for $15000. I contacted him about it and he told me he bought a Ural because of the snow and ice during the winters. If you really want to buy it go to the wharehouse location and check it out. The only way this is legit is if it was a repo. Sounds like a scam and I wouldn't get my panties in a bunch over the add.

    This guy has been listing this one for a while now. It's a pretty sidecar, but I think he's asking a bit much. After about 6 months of listing it, he might be ready to move on his price now.

    If anybody is interested, I'll be in Greensboro next weekend and could take a look for you.
