Bad Deal in Memphis...

Yeah i found you guys on the HL Forum are read about the break in... Mannnn that pisses me off. Speaking of thieves, here's a story, and I'll tell it on the HL forum as well:

I have a real nice Suzuki Sport quad on sell on craigslist. Yesterday, some kid who sounded like he was from Memphis called me using a Milwaukee area code and said he was from there and wanted to buy the fourwheeler thursday when he was in town. Said to meet him at some park on Lamar... I said No meet me in Desoto County. Well he called back (and it sounded like he was reading from a script) and said that he could only meet me at this once place on Lamar. I said no way in hell I'd bring my fourwheeler to sell on Lamar. He said but he'd pay extra, ($800 extra!) in cash, if I'd meet him there.

So apparently this kid was with some people in Memphis here who wanted me to bring my fourwheeler to sale on Lamar and then basically steal it and rob me.. This is what I'm guessing.

I saved his phone number. maybe i should contact the 5.0

Inform the Memphis popo and ask them if they would like to do a sting operation.

You wouldn't be involved though. Cops link your phone and bring a wheeler with them for the setup. I can hear it now, look I can't make it but will it be ok if I send my wife for the sale.

Yeah it made me pretty mad... also because I have not gotten one single inquiry about this sport quad for sale that wasn't a scam or someone wanting to trade for a crappy truck or sea doo... NO ONE is buying sport quads

The thing is alot of people aren't buying anything. I have many friends with quads, dirt and street bikes, campers and all kinds of toys for sale and they can't sell em. The best thing to be selling right now is guns and ammunition.

You sound like you're speaking from experience. Are you a cop or were you on the receiving end of a sting operation?

Well I've been a cop and was stung by a stripper in college that went by Sasha. So I've been on both ends.
