    You should have come here first. I short search would show never, ever use Western Union. - TF

    Too good to be true

    I sold a used 2004 Sworks M5 frame for 1,100 on mtbr last month. 1,200 for a complete bike with top of the line components is too good to be true. The frame alone retails for 1,800 new. Still, sorry to hear about your loss. Western Union should find a way to confirm folks identities before they dish out that type of cash. Take a photo ID or something.

    He's probably a scammer located in Nigeria. Post the text of the e-mails he sent you-I'm pretty proficient in the Nigerian Scammish dialect...
