I responded to a Gumtree advert the other day for an attractively priced outboard engine, same advert is also on Boatsandoutboards. I received the following email reply:

The engine has 30 days testing period (30 days money back guarantee). If you don't like it after the testing period you can ask for a refund and we will transfer your money back.
You can place your order at the following link: Seven Boats - New & used outboards, boats, jet skis & more at low prices!
by pressing the buy now button or you can email me the delivery address where you want to receive it and i will pass it to our sales department. After that they will contact you with the invoice where you will have all payment and transport details.

Seems that the web domain sevenboats was only registered last week by:
The company who's name appears on the site was incorporated in June of last year and their accounts are overdue:
BOAT SEVEN LIMITED
c/o C/O CODDAN CPM
124 BAKER STREET
Company No. 07676661
Now being a bit of a techy I looked at the scripting behind the site and discovered this:
<meta name="author" content="Klára Frolichová, Sunlight webdesign"/>
<meta name="Copyright" content="Klára Frolichová, Sunlight webdesign 2007" />
<meta name="design" content="Sunlight webdesign - Tvorba e-shopu a pronájem e-shopu, vývoj systému Sun-shop
So, what do you all think should I send this company my hard earned cash or what?
