Got an email back from the chap selling the "bargain basement all prices slashed rib"!! I quote:

"I am in Rimini (Italy) and the boat is here with me. And for the moment i accept only an service that is afiliate to eBay and is also working like escrow. So if you are interested please contact me with your name and address also your eBay ID and Log in."

What a load of B******s

"Slashed rib" sounds like a job for olmec! You have got to be really careful on ebay, it sounded to good to be true. I hope nobody got caught out.

Id've thought the idea of Fedexing a RIB to a buyer would be a giveaway enough in its self

The prolfieration of scams is making it difficult to sell anything these days. When I sold my car before leaving Blighty I had a very persistent foreign gentleman on the phone who wanted to buy it and export it to Cyprus. Now he could have been 100% genuine but frankly too much risk so I put him off til he went away. Add that to the "carsearch" scams (Give us a tenner and will put you in touch with our register of people desperate to buy your motor) and it was a right pain in the wassnames.

Just to clarify this, I meant a job for Olmec to repair, not one of Olmec's jobs! I hope I haven't offended anyone, I see it could be taken the wrong way!

Looks like Ebay have rumbled the scam!! The link at the top of the thread now takes you to a "Item removed" page.

Wow!! the power of RIBNET.

Great
