Default beware of scam

emailed user about the 2006 Harley Street Glide with 1744 miles from Montgomery Texas for $5980.00 (including shipping!!) because the price was too good to be true....well it was. I did not send any money just emails over the last couple of days and she didn't want to leave her phone number or address so that i could talk to her about the bike or stop by to look at it. also she wanted to do the payment through ebay and not escrow.com as I asked and she was pretty adament about it. So Be Careful and Beware. P.S. the name on her email was Jennifer Holcumb.

Maybe he knows my Barrister, Mr. Harold Mgbumbbwewe? he's the one handling my long lost uncles fortune after he was tragically killed in a smelting accident....
