2006 150 Opti Scam?

New e-bay member, the ad is very 'Americanised', low start price, 3-day listing, etc.

I'd say so. Reference to 'Bass' boats is a bit of a giveaway and googling the Triton 186 gives this http://www.tritonboats.com/frames2.asp?cat=3&bid=26 which is a US Bass boat. Doubt there are any in UK.

I do hope you lot are not bullying this law abiding individual who is just trying to earn an honest crust. Should we all bid on it Its February, cold and miserable outside, so a scammer sticking his head above the parapit makes for some light entertainment whilst we wait for the spring.

Looks like the guy scamming with 225's has been closed down. I reported him as he had nearly 40 items and to bid on all of them would have been a bit obvious

Despite being told (automated response) good old ebay let this one run through to the finish, well done to whoever won with the username 'HaHa Scam Stopped!'
