From what I have researched, the pay with a counterfeit money order. You give them the bike, and sometimes the money order is more than the asking price, and you refund the difference. Then you get a call from your bank stating that the money order is fake, and you also owe them the money.

I cannot say what is the best payment method, but in all of my adds, I state that it is an in person cash deal.
Thanks, so no money orders. Can they use a money order to pay through PayPal? One other guy was asking about PayPal. But also haven't answered yet after I suggested him to come in person.

Scammer. You will get this same response with every craigslist add.
Ok, can you explain how the scheme works? Do they pay with something that can be withdrawn from their side? How to know if you're safe when someone wants to pay through PayPal which is very popular around here? In europe PayPal is already a red light about scammers, there you normally use a bank transfer :).
They will come back and say that they are out of town, or buying for their friend, etc. Then they will say they need to do a wire transfer or something like that. Note that they will not know what they are buying.

This is a textbook example of the CL scam.

Actually, a Postal Money Order or an Official Check (certified check) from a local bank is okay. Make them come in person to get it.

Your bike will sell locally without any issues.
