He couldn't even be bothered to change the photo. E Mailed the guy that has bid so he can see our previous thread.

Yes it is the same scam - it was me who spoke to you on the phone pete - I emailed everyone bidding to put them off - nearly got caught myself.

Emailed Ebay at the time and they just weren't interested.

Removed from Ebay

Looks like Ebay have taken this off there listing, sounds like they do take notice after all!

He is persistant isn't he. Never mind Codpawn and I are on to him but feel free to e mail e bay as well as they are a little slow for my liking.

I would think that the current bid is around the right price for this boat, after all it won't be CE marked!!!
