To everyone shopping on general marketplace, please do not purchase anything from ramon111, its a scam account out to scam people's money, i have been scammed before by this kind of ads. Its clearly a scam as it is using the same method before on Facebook. They will ask you to transfer money to a POSB account and then you will not get your stuff. They will come up with stupid reasons to extort more money from you like its stuck at the custom or something then asking you to pay additional $250 or so.
P.S. Its pretty much the same people out to scam again. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE.

There is a scammer neoyourlan account deleted staying in Bishan postal code 570190 tel 98368831 his profile says around 26yrs old. I have his picture if any bros want it. he is selling fake enve forks 1.0 at $250.  These are the text in his ad.

good review on this fork
original not oem
$250 nego
original and brand new uncut unmounted

etc etc

when approached he will confirm item is from US and will provide receipt , he will post it as he needs to find it.
he really makes it like it is genuine and there are people queuing for it ie. pressure sell.

after selling any further efforts to contact him , he will cut off your call. does not provide reciept as promised

he is also looking for cracked carbon frames and selling stripped and repainted frames no need to guess what he is up too, here is a list of items he is selling some look very dubious on second look : selling/trade 2 zipp 404 wheels one with silver spokes and strange looking silver hub whth a large black stripe in the middle and the other with black spokes, shimano c24, caad 8, cannondale super six, ahamba wheel, something called a rodie carbon repainted black, a silver frame stripped title says giant , a small size 46 full bike, aksium wheels in a box.

those who unfortunately got scammed pls pm me 

i have screen shots of all his ads and his whatsapp profile and picture, i know where he stays.

Hi all,

Has anyone see some seller selling Mondraker at too good to be true prices lately?
They will say items at warehouse. Then ask to meet, then you have to transfer 50% of the price. I have been monitoring. They keep changing IDs, but selling the same type of bikes.
The minute you start to nego, you check Togoparts for the ads again and it will disappear. NO MORE ADS from the seeler ID. Does anyone has this experience? Please share. Think its a big scam.
Can we reveal scammers here btw? What can Togoparts do about it?

Hi Zyko! 


 


Yes we are looking into them. Please at the moment, do not transact with those that will need deposit of 50% and be mindful of how they negotiate with you. Lately, there has been a lot of scam users that we had to ban, they come in multiple times on different times. We are looking to limit the number of ads, and will require unique account details pretty soon to avoid these scammers posting and posting again.

The standard scammer tactics when:


  1. Requires deposit before bike can be delivered FOC

  2. Will post pictures of NRIC (no guarentee it belongs to the seller)

  3. Show pictures of similar bikes in other sellers’ advertisements (look at the background)

  4. Unbelievably low price

  5. Telling ridiculous life story

  6. etc


If in doubt, post questions in the forum for any feedback.

Hi, has anyone bought any bike from 

Muhammadsiddiqui
?

He has a number of mtb of different brands for sales and among them a small n large size apparently brand new 2017 Santa Cruz Bronson cc with fairly good parts. He apparently use another person to transaction and this person is Shiju Joel. He send his ic pic on WhatsApp to proof he is real but you have to send deposit before u can see the bike. 

That's a very strange practice... anyone come across this? Price agreed is too good to be true. Can Togoparts look into this?
