The FBI does not always help a lot on these scams unless/until the crime of collecting money has already been done.

I would notify your local police department and see what they say about it. If you can get a detectives attention on the matter that would be a good place to start.

Personally, I would go to the station with the ad, a picture of your bike and personal bike info, and ask to speak with a detective in person. This will get his attention a heck of a lot quicker than trying to reach out over the phone.

I would put up an ad in the same category with a headline that matches as much as Craigslist will allow. Include the same picture/text and say this bike is not for sell and the other ad is a scam. Hopefully this will help some unexpected buyer.

I would then red flag the ad and notify craigslist of what's going on. Craigslist maybe able to stop this person from doing more of these ads and are better equipped to fight this type of thing.

Also, as said, notify the local PD just in case there's anything they can do.
