    So you paid for 1 bike and somehow they’ve sent two and want you to pay for both.

    Tell them they can arrange to pick the second one up when it arrived.

    You mean you bought a bike that normally sells for £2000 for about £750 from a website based in Indonesia and wonder if they are not quite legit?

    Ever heard if it sounds to good to be true it probably is?

    Not sure if this would be a scam or just incompetence.

    If they did deliver two and you received both tell them to pick up the second one, they made the error so will be at their cost, although you may have to make yourself (or someone) available for collection.

    If you didn’t receive two then they need to look into it with their carriers. If the carriers are claiming both were delivered to you then they need to prove this, you should be asking them to provide a delivery docket with your signature (one for each delivery, for comparison) as a start.

    Mistakes do happen, don’t assume that they are trying to scam you, look at it as helping them solve their problem, in the first place.

    If they’ve not actually taken the funds for the second bike, kinda proves you didn’t order it. Tell them to sort out a courier if they want it back.

    Did you try googling for scams involving Indonesian bike stores? It’s not even the first one posted here I’ve come across. Theres hundreds of hits for these dodgy sites.

    To be honest, sending £750 to Indonesia is pretty stupid. To think you’ll get a £2k bike delivered is naive.

    I may be wrong but this screams “scam”. They trying to get double the amount from you means they really do think your a special kind of mug.

    My guess is they’re trying to scam you twice

    The original bike isn’t going to turn up and the money has gone [depending how you paid] the alleged second bike doesn’t exist either.

    Wondering what the tracking online for delivery is telling the OP?

    If I was running a scam, I would target people who don’t understand the correct use of capitals and punctuatiin too.

    As long as those with dodgy spelling are left alone, we’ll be alright.

    Curses, I’ve been caught out by the old big fingers, little keys, no auto correct on the phone trap.

    I just lost 799USD by ordering a Shimano Ultegra DI2 Upgrade kit from these scammers. They claimed it was shipped and then later said it was not, but they needed this much again because the shipment was held in Singapore and must be an order of two Groupos instead of one. They wanted to double their thievery ! Absoloute thieves as are all businesses in Indonesia and I should have known that as I lived in Singapore nexr door and learned of their reputation.

    ….and it gets worse

    I was close to being deceived by bikepart-store.com in Bandar Lampung . I checked the Swift Bank Code they supplied BNINIDJA, Bank Address BNI 46 , located in Ambon on the island of Molucca over 1500 miles away from their store. Check out- http://www.theswiftcodes.com/indonesia/ . All valid listings require an 11 digit code. When I responded that I need the full code , they replied with BNINIDJAXXX, Bank Address BNI 144 which is in Jakarta, about 1300 miles away from the first bank. I view that a bonafide company deals with only one bank branch close to its operations base, otherwise your money will take a circuit ride, and be virtually untraceable.
    Nonetheless, I learned more about Indonesian geography, while keeping my money.
