That picture has been on an ebay auction before, right down to sitting on the carpet inside with porthole mirrors behind it.
I recognise the pic but don't have an opinion about the auction as I didn't do any checking. As I said before, I don't know if its genuine or not but it hgas been seen before!

Seems this engine gets around a bit, it's now in California, unless you know better of course.....

Some thing very odd about this one same photo but cropped! He has feed back & has 3 other engines for sale. The original for sale is still on Bouts & Outboards as well in Cumbria!
He has sold One other outboard & 2 camera lenses that I can see.
I think this may be the iffy one!

From Boats and outboards

Pete

Thanks very much for that I have taken the adverts off whilst I investigate. It is not the only "new" engine he is selling and he has a UK IP address, a proper home address, and land lines as well as mobiles in his adverts. I spoke to his mum!

Regards

Phil

And from the USA

Hi Pete,
Listing says not a picture of actual motor. Since the motor is crated
for shipping, I can not open it to take a picture, so I just used the
one I found on the net.
I'll email original owner of the motor and ask if it's okay to use
his pictures. Thanks for letting me know. I don't want to offence
anyone.

Thanks

watch out it's a fraud

Hi everybody. I found this forum and thread by searching Google for "disko4dave".
I won and paid for an ebay auction for a 4 stroke outboard from this guy and he has since "disappeared", go figure. I'm alerting the authorities in CA and in Nevada where his partner is.
What can I say, I don't think I'm stupid. The guy had good feedback, his ebay info matched where I did the wire transfer to (same name and address).

lesson learned.........the hard way.

...and he still does have - I can't see any entry by "cjj" (or "chaschmidt" - is that you?) stating that he's completely dishonest - why not?
