They was a Zodiac with a 40hp engine on Boatsandoutboards for 530 seemed ok but when emailed they said they would deliver free of charge, kept emailing him and it was a scam, the shipping agent lark gives it away.
Is they a report button you can click as I had to email B&O?
Also can anyone translate this as its the reply I got when I told him I reported him:

SA MOARA MATAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA


NIGERIAN POWER

Guess where he was from...

His email address is:

go_service_ham@hotmail.com

One of our 'imported' lorry drivers!

I don't think the online translators are much good... they are too literal.

Apparently sa moara means 'death to' and mata is actually ma-ta (Ma = mother ta = your)

So you're not going to buy his Zodiac then?

Emailed him back telling what him and his mother can do, I think he was baffled, got this reply:

Clever lad but he ain't that clever obviously!

Thanks for the translation Alex!
