    I thought I'd try for advice on a vibe problem on a new bike by going online. Enter with expert mechanics ready to answer your question! First questions suspiciously fast answering, seems like AI or robot answer software.

    Then invites you to give your credit card details, promising a fee of only 5. At the same, presenting a picture of the expert mechanic waiting to answer your call. Except the picture of mr Ben K. looks incredibly like a certain well-known UK TV personality who used to specialise in hosting TV programmes about antique steam engines, traction engines and similar Victorian machinery.

    I'm an admirer of his programmes, but believe he's passed away now. So maybe his ghost is haunting the internet and offering to answer your bike mechanics questions for just 5!  :087:  Umm, yes ..... or maybe not.
