I apologise for the misspelled words in my complaint.

Original review posted by user May 09, 2012

I was redirected to their website on an Ebay listing.The motorcycle I wanted had a lower price on their website so I emailed them and asked if I sent them the money would they stop the Ebay listing early and send me the bike.

They said no problem. Well my excitement cost me $6,430.00 dallors I'll never see again. Yes, I should have know better. I found out they steal photos of other websites motorcycles and use them as their own.

Their phone # and address I found were none existing. I have told the local police and they are contacting the State employee's federal credit union in Schenectady , NY. where the $ was wired. This was the first time I have been scammed online.

Thank goodness I didn"t try to but the $11,000.00 bike I really wanted.Stay away from U.W.BikesLLC or U.W.Bikes.com

I purchased a bike intending it for my daughter and got taken for 1650.00.First it missed the truck then the driver who did pick it up was behind schedule and then no more communication.

I filed a complaint with all the emails and screen shots of their web sites with the local police and also the FBI.

Don't hold your breath waiting for your money it is long gone.If it had been for me they would not have been paid up front but what can I say it was for my daughter.

I got scammed also.I was interested in a motorcycle on ebay and was redirected to uwbikes.com.

I had a gut feeling that this was a scam but I was dumb enough to go through with the purchase because I didn't see any bad reviews with this site. I sent $2,350 to a bank account in Arizona. A few days later, I saw my motorcycle back up for sale on the website.

I have not received any replies from them since.If the low price sounds too good to be true, it usually is...I had to learn the hard way.

I found multiple motorcycles on UWBikes website that matched dealers bikes all over the nation.I called some of them and asked about each one of their bikes and had them look at UWBikes website and they all agreed that their photos had been copied and what UWBikes was doing was illegal.

After I emailed UWBikes.com and asked about it, they stopped responding. Their objective is to lure you off ebay and take you to their own site and tempt you with a lower price if you send the money straight to them. I fell for it.

You can only contact them via email.Since they won't respond, I'm 100% sure I won't get my motorcycle.

did they actually say they didn't have the bike or that you weren't getting it after you paid? I noticed a few of their ebay auctions with mention of their website.

They use other website ads and photos and claim them as their own and convince people to buy merchandise at an incredible deal.After they hacked into an email account, they attached a link to make the buyer go off Ebay to their own website showing dozens of bikes at low prices, stating what a trustworthy compny they are.

The pictures of employess and werehouse are stolen photos from else where. They convince folks to wire money and they will ship the motorcycle anywhere in the US. for free.

It's a buyer beware world out there.Lots of folks who think stealing money from the unsuspecting is legitimate employment in its self

I filed a small claims suit against the person that I wired the money to.I suggest everyone else do the same.

I got this guy's background information, I kept all the emails, the wire transfer receipt, and I saved all the pages of the website on pdf before the site went down.You should also file with IC3.gov

Here's what I did,

After I figured out I was scammed for $6,430.00 I called my local police dept. They asked for the account# of the bank I sent the money to. On my own I contacted the bank up in New York and let them know what happened. They couldn't do much besides report it to their own fraud dept. The police dept in NY won't do anything until they hear from my police dept here in NC. This is my idea. I want all of you who have been scammed by these losers to share with me the info you have on the reciept from your bank as to where you sent your money. This way the police might be able to compile eveyones info to find who set up all these different accounts across the nation.

Please dont put your personal info here. Just the beneficiary. Heres mine:

Bank- State Employee Federal Cedit Union in

Albany NY.

Account# 430165

Beneficiary- Ultimate Wholesaler 920 Albany St.

Schenectady, NY. 12307

Originator- Franklin Hollingshed

1224 Union St. Schenectady, NY. 12308

This is all the info I have on where I wired my money

Hopefully those of you who were scammed and any others that might show up later here can share where you wired your hard earned money and give this to your local police. Maybe with the combined info we stand a better chance of making something happen.

I can't just let this *** go. This was money saved for a long time and I want it back.

They got me for $3000.00 on May 1th.I just checked and it looks like they shut the website down.

I have been sending them death wishes since they took off with my money.

Kinda shame on me tho..I got greedy and ttrusted them....should have checked them out WAY more than I did.I'm going to try to find their new site, if they intend to try this again and continue to send them death wishes.
