Another scam

Karl W.'s Activity in United States on Oodle Marketplace

You can get a brand-new looking RIB *and* Porsche 912 for less than $10K!

Dragging "Karl's" image into Google image search* shows he isn't Karl at all - but Dr J F Hainfield.

Dragging the boat's image into Google Image search shows its use in multiple adverts, presumably one of them being the original.

*Open a new window / tab, go to Google and and then go to 'Images'. You can drag and drop an image from another webpage into the search box. (Also works on dating sites)

If you use chrome as your browser you can right click an image and an option to Google search it appears.

Just goes to show that you cannot even trust experts on nanoparticles. :-)
