The picture is from a genuine advert some time ago by a genuine seller (buyarib - Paul @ wolf rock boat co).

The price is ridiculously cheap so I'm sure its a scam!

There is only a tiny percentage of the B&O readers on here, many are not as knowledgeable and every time they phone the premium rate number someone is making a profit.

Couple things I simply don't understand, off clearly a scam why can't B&O administrators remove and how do the scammers hope to make money? Surely B&O are the winners with premium rate not advertiser

Looking to upgrade my hard boat to RIB next year so watching market closely have seen couple others which look 'to good to be true' but look believable enough to enquire so would like to understand how they operate so I don't get had!!!

You answered you own question.

If something is too good to be true, be suspicious.
