It is, and it appears he's an AOL user. The email addy is registered to a district of Washington DC called Redmond.

I suggest you try reporting him to AOL-maybe they can trace him. Somehow I doubt you'll have any joy though as I suspect that's either a proxy address or a hacked PC.

I e-mailed what looked like 2 different sellers of 2 different ribs that were for sale on boats and outboards and the idiot sent back the same message word for word from the same e-mail address for both boats. I e-mailed him back asking which person he is and if he has an issue with a split personality, he replied saying he has 2 names and is selling both boats. What a prat.

Lol! I know what I did was the stupidity thing to do, but I got carried away by the deal! But I really think boats and outboards should look at improving the site, maybe if the seller is new, theycould have a big red warning sign highlighting that the seller is new and not to pay for goods by instant bank transfer....it would at least ring alarm bells!

I have enquired about several items on boats and outboards which have been on outlying scottish islands (alegedley) which have turned out to be scams I reported two small diesel generators adds to boats and outboards who duly removed them only for them to be relisted with the same pictures a few weeks later clearly there vetting procedure is poor

now if i enquire about an item & it is in a remote area I just say I have a freind who lives near & ask for an address & time to view if its a scam then they usually avoid making apointments or offer to deliver foc if there genuine they will be happy to arrange a viewing & will give a bonafide address which you can look up on google & check out

dont think you stand much chance of seeing your cash again but lets hope no one else gets caught out!

I e mailed boats and outboards about this, on one page there were 5 scams. i questioned their vetting procedures and gave them the links of the scams. i had nil response. surely the Advertising standards should be informed

Thanks for everyone's input so far! I hope this has proved a useful thread even if it only serves as a reminder, to what should already be common sense!
