And a big, jacket, gang emblem on your back. Now you picture it.

Only $20. They said. And it was $249. Must be a steal.

I can't see a rack in the photos. Or a cupholder. Or a spellchecker.

Yah know, if that website didn't look so dodgy, I'd drop US$20 on it. It's cute.

It's a boiler plate website, originally made in Spanish, translated to English. Not saying it makes them any better... But explains the multiple misspelled words.

I've seen something like that in my neighborhood. It looked like a commuter going to work. I'm not sure if it was exactly the same as this one but it's the same concept anyway.

The price is probably also a typo

I don't think so. Everything on their site seems to be $10 or $20

$10 or $20 with free shipping. And they don't take paypal. It's a credit card mining operation.

A "who is" lookup tells us the domain site was only created last month.
A big red flag.

I might just pop up a dummy account, drop the debit card on one, and see how it goes. I can just drop the account if anything at all.

$20? $200? Makes a neat gift. It cheaps.

I wouldn't. You'd have to cancel your debit card. And how long are you willing to wait for a shipment confirmation that'll never come? While you're waiting they'll be in your account already.

I'm sure it's a scam to get your CC number. There's no customer service contact and it's poorly translated Spanish to English with a domain in Canada that was only started on April 2nd. As already pointed out, the free shipping would cost them more than your payment.

I've got something better and cheaper for sale. It looks exactly like that, but it also flies, and it's only $10. But to get that great price you need to buy 100. Otherwise, they're a million dollars each. Unfortunately, my internet is down and I can't accept credit cards right now. Send cash to:
