So an interesting day checking out our new opti and wondering how fast a boat will go with that sort of power. Quick e mail to the seller to say hi and where are you etc. Saw an option on e bay to call by automatic e mail details of the seller, so used that too.
Great he lives on Oakland in Cambridgeshire, phone number looks a little odd, its an American style number. Quick check with www.streetmap.co.uk
and, well there is no Oakland in Cambs.
Not to worry I am sure sure the seller can explain all this. He e mailed me back and recommended an escrow account to use,
that will be safe then. Just check its URL address with: http://centralops.net/co/
how odd, the company has just been registered last month and has a US address but the web site says it is in Dion, France, hmm.
Oh and a thank you to the other two buyers who e mailed me warning of a possible scam. Just composing a letter to e bay now, oh and then I will be inviting some of the USAs nicest porn sites to send examples of there wares to the sellers e mail address. That should keep him busy for a while and probably far more suitable for his sort of life style.
Shame, but at least no one got caught,
