Yeah, the guy who claimed over email to have my bike never responded to my requests to meet IRL. I'd lay odds that he never had the bike and was just looking for someone gullible and desperate to wire or give him cash. Ever since the internet exploded I just take it as a given that I'll interact with a scammer every now and then; keeps me on my toes!

I just got the $1400+ check from Allstate along with the itemization. They seem to have erred in assigning a zero value to my new helmet and pedal set which were stolen along with the bicycle, so technically I am owed another $80 or so. But I think I'll just let that go given that I'm already ahead.

Oh, and the final coup de grace: I got a notice in the mail that my stolen bike is being recalled due to faulty cranks and that I should stop riding it immediately, that injuries have been reported.

Take that, bike thief!
