Scammer offered a full price of the motorcycle, including $750 shipping. Sent fake Google wallet emails requesting I pay for shipping at my end, through Western Union so they could coordinate pick up of bike. Never send money to get money! I've learned my lesson! Take the time to follow this post through to the end. If you Google search (donna hussey, 51 patton st apt 2) you will see the recurring theme (I should have checked before moving forward).
