Been working at Proline the last few days, and I've had several suspicious calls on random bikes asking for me to deliver them to rough parts of Atlanta (without asking how much the bike cost).

Basically they call asking if I had a bike, then ask if I could deliver to Atlanta ASAP without bothering for little details, and hug up as soon as I told them this was a dealership they were calling and we would not let the bikes leave the showroom until the bikes were paid for. Guys calling sounded real uneducated.

Be safe out there to those selling stuff on CL. If they call back I'll try to get a name and number. ::up::

Edit: It seems like they got the friend of a fellow GOR Member -> viewtopic.php?f=33&t=54020

The bad guys are calling people on Craigslist and promising to give the seller an extra $100 if they deliver the bike to Riverwood and other parts of Atlanta, and stealing the bikes via "testrides".

Oh great. I've got two bikes listed on CL and here. Guess the model 26 will be on my hip during the transaction (just like anyother time).
