CH - Just have everything legal and in writing. Cash or bank check for sales. Be fair both ways is all I'll support. BTW "as is" is not recognized by my state! State known problems in writing if known at all.

Sample of bill of sale you could copy taking out Mass legal #s if you wish. If you are a dealer you can't get away with this either!

Re: private messages Sign In

T- missed the point, this was an unsolicited e mail sent to my yahoo inbox- I have no motorcycle for sale. I believe it is a case of what they call "phising" that looks for info that is of the personal nature. They want your bank numbers and anything they can get to get your money. They are wasting their time with me!

Oh! I'd just ignore them for now and hope they go away.

Don't give anyone info unless you called them is my suggestion! Gees!

No, I know NOTHING!! I don't tell anyone anything- wife included- or especially! I just did'nt know if this was new or if anyone else was getting these. My computer has a delete and I use it. I need to start a new post.

Re: private messages Sign In

CH; In the edit profile section, you can allow or disallow private messages. I've gotten a few unsolicited PMs, also. Depending on the subject, I will reply and ask that they put their mssg. in the open forum, or just delete it.
