Default Hmmm What do you think?

Not saying this is a scam, but this is cheap. I have been looking for a while for my son and I have not found one for less than double this? Here is the link.

Default Just a realistic price more likely

He probably purchased it in 08 three years ago. Do you think it is worth half of high MSRP? I can buy a new one in michigan today for near eight grand. This guy knows that it is not worth much used I would bet. I purchased a New honda TRX 450R this winter for 4600.00 tax title complete. The MSRP on it is 7200.00 + in some places. I would take half MSRP after just 6 months of riding much less after a possible three years of use.

They are a new member BUT the number listed does trace back to Kentucky so give it a try. If they reply that they are living overseas and the ATV is at the shipper ready to be shipped, RUN AWAY as fast as you can!

Thank you.

And I thought that the guy knew his ATV pricing!
Go figure. Glad you did not get screwed on the deal.

I went ahead and sent an email to the email he listed on his RJ account just to see if he would respond. I can't believe people would actually fall for this.... I am going to play along just to see what happens. Below is his response to the email I sent him yesterday.

Hello,

The price is $3.900 shipping included to your address. Right now i'm in England with business but my wife can manage the shipping. The atv is located in Olympia, WA. The polaris is already deposited at a shipping company in WA. I will pay for all the shipping taxes. As you can see in the description the polaris is in perfect condition.

I HAVE ATTACHED PHOTOS.

Response to his above email....

John,

I will take it, but will not pay for it until it has arrived to my location. As soon as it arrives I will wire the funds directly into you account before it is unloaded from the transport vehicle. Is this a problem?
