If you do it that way if people are not legit you just lodge a complaint and get your money back. Maybe you might get a free bike also depending on if the owner/police want it back after 30 days. If a person does not want to deal in PayPal on their Gumtree account then walk away. Australia is not that big and eventually it doesn't matter. It will catch up with you
Sorry bud, cash or you don’t get the goods from me in a gumtree sale. It’s too easy for the buyer to say they didn’t get the item and Paypal gives them their money back. Paypal will side with the buyer in most cases.
Isn't it wonderful to know someone else I'll never buy a bike from No PayPal no sale. Sorry bud, you could be the nicest guy in the world but I don't know you from a crack addict so until you prove otherwise you might as well be a crack addict. Come back when you want to prove otherwise. Zero trust is now given that which is not earned.
Thieve me once, shame on you, thieve me twice, you know the drill.
