You'll probably receive some used toilet paper sent by tracked mail.
When you file your not-received-bike claim the (non)seller will use the tracked delivery to refute your claim.
Big roll or beads are popular substitute products, but yes: we know you weren't serious but tragically the scammers are serious.

Literally anyone can advertise on Facebook. Don't believe me? Try yourself. Download Facebook ad manager app or use website. You can target your ads incredibly specifically, from what phone you have, your interests, age, location, and lots more data Facebook has. All you need to publish is a bank card. Content is moderated using AI, as long as nothing flags for manual review (say if it was a banned keyword) then it is allowed on site.

Despite having a domain their email is helpdesk@customerservicebest.com and no contact details. Poorly written terms to boot. Definitely a hard brake and turn around situation. Buy a decent second hand bike via Facebook or Gumtree.
Take a video, no cuts, no edition, of the package just being received, focus on label/tracking information, and film the opening/unboxing.
I have tried myself some deals "too good to be true", and sometimes they are really awesome deals, but also a couple of time were scams that I could solve thanks to my precaution of taking a video of the process. Specially ebay, amazon marketplace, or weird websites
