Targeted for fraud via eBay

Last year I bid for a 50th Anniversary VFR800 on eBay; didn't win the bike but was contacted to take up a second chance.

I was offered the bike for a great price, the 'seller' was going to 'ship it' to me there and then for 'post free', even though i'd requested to collect it and pay cash. And I was to pay via Western Union (which has absolutely no security) immediately in order to qualify for the sale.

At this point I notified eBay to report a probable fraud. Yep!, that was the last I heard...
