God thats horrible.

PLEASE PEOPLE, DO NOT USE WESTERN UNION AS A PAYMENT METHOD.

Lesson learnt if a painful one.

Good luck with trying to track him down anyway.

It probably wasnt a MTBer. I bet think most probably he was a scammer who recognised that people would pay awesome money for equally awesome bikes.

Western Union should be banned - they cannot offer any protection for the users and I must admit I dont konow anyone who uses it...

bad bad bad :(
