MCN takes action against scammers

MCN's bikes for sale website now has the greatest number of anti-scamming filters, meaning it's the safest place to buy or sell your bike.

Scammed Scammers

Keep up the good work!

Excellent Stuff MCN. I always play along with email scammers by

pretending to be daft (not difficult) and saying that my suspicious nag-bag of a wife is telling me I'm being conned, so if they could just send me a £20 note as a show of faith, it will be enough to shut the old boiler up and we can get on with the real business of transferring the £10million I have inherited. It ain't worked yet but I live in hope.
