Just for fun, I sent an email to the guy to see what the default response would be (and how bad the english would be).
Like most of these scams, the english was bad, but there was a section that said you can come to amsterdam to pick up the bike and pay cash there. so i emailed him back and said i would come right over to amsterdam, let's see what he says to that.
I've got you guys covered. LOL Read our email below.
Tell you what, how about I give you $4,000 for the bike instead of $3,000 and you deliver it in person when you return to the U.S. The extra thousand covers your shipping expenses and time delay. How does that sound? Also, any chance you could provide the bike's vin number ahead of time?

I received your email regarding the bike I have for sale on eBay.
Some words about how the deal will be handled:
The bike will be either picked up or delivered from Holland. If pick up is your option, I will be glad to take cash Will help with pickup.
If delivered I will use Lufthansa Airplane Cargo insured
in 3 days from the departure or FedEx- they will deliver it in 3
days at your door.
Will be delivered in best conditions in a crate. I am responsible for all storage and/or shipping costs. I will pay all the fees and insurance too.
For the moment I am in Amsterdam where I have supplied capital for the purchase of a bankrupt store's stock that sold quads and other vehicles new or used.
Now I am trying to sell the remaining stock. I want to sell them fast so that I can get my money back and maybe earn
some more than I have paid for all the stock.
All the manuals and the original documentation are in English.
All emissions tests are succesfully passed.
You will the bike along with all papers and receipts that you need in order to register it to your name.
You will receive the title, keys, owner manual...everything that comes with it.
Being the fact that I am over here and I cannot use my credit cards
and bank account and other instruments that we usually use for payment we can only accept as form of payment the money order.
Mail soon and let me know if you are interested in knowing more details
