Polygon Bikes on Facebook - Warning

Postby JMazz » Sun Jun 17, 2018 5:04 pm

Can anyone comment on the sale polygon bikes is having by togobicycles via bicycles online showing up a lot on Facebook??
An example is approximately $150 for an”S5” racing bike with a normal price of around $2.5k. :roll:
To me it is way too good to be true & wouldn’t touch it for fear of losing $150 bucks. I’ve tried to look up Togocycles but get redirected to potential 18y/o girlfriends!! But what I find unusual is it constantly turning up on my Facebook as a seemingly legit retailer?
Has anyone else come across this?

There is a brief, equally sceptical discussion on BNA here

Some people would risk the $150... which it why the ad still comes up. I would report it via facebook. Facebook have a reputation for not responding or reacting but so it is a symbolic gesture.

What's an ad? :D I love my AdBlocker on my web browser. This laptop is up to 552,745 ads blocked since installation :)

Definitely sounds too good to be true too.We all love a discount but that sounds dodgy as, even if they were trying to shift a bulk lot of old stock.
