Re: Stolen Very nice 2002 Banshee 9/18/03 in Az.
Well here is the story folks. The quad was up for Sale and this guy calls and wants some info so I give to him. Then he said he is calling on others and will call later so I'm like ok,no big deal well he calls back and said he wants to check it out in a hour or so, so whats my address I'm like just call before yoor heading this way he said ok. Well like 15-20 minutes later he said he was heading this way so I gave my address he said he would be here at appx 6:30 so I wait and nothing so I put it back away at 7:00.I wanted to take out and dust off and start been sitting a while. Here is the lockdown 2 locks on gate-2 locks on shed-4 more locks & cables on quad in the shed plus it is wired to house alarm and I'm almost always home, (work out of house). Well low and behold he shows up at appx 7:20-7:30 so I meet him on side of house and grab some keys to unlock gate, shed so he is checking it out and I'm like if your really serious I will take it out, he said no I'm serious lets take her out and start her up. So anyway we do that and he wants to ride so I'm like just go to the end of street mello and then turn around and come back kinda of quick. I thought his truck was here and I have sold all kinds of things before no problem. Well he started off faster than I said, so I'm like what the f*ck and then he flys around corner instead of turn around. I'm freaking out right about now but still think truck is here and just going around block well I don't hear it now and I'm freaked so jump in truck and pull it to street and try to hear it nothing. So I call 911 and then I go to truck to see if I see anything that says his name on it nothing. I can't believe what has just happened. So the cops get there pretty quick 10 minutes after call but to late and the truck out front was Stolen from mall a few miles away, thats more than likely why he was late (not even reported stolen yet). He or they drive it around corner, (few streets or blocks away) and load up in a truck or van 2-3 minutes and they are gone. And no insurance it was Fort Knox safe until you hand someone the key basically. I feel really stupid and hindsight always kick your A$$, but I am telling this whole story so others will have a heads up. Get ID, truck keys, all money up front. He was a white guy about 5'10" - 5' 11" and said he was from Wyoming kinda of dorky looking and skinny. So keep your heads up for scam. So please pass the word.
Please read some if not all..
