as i'm in the market for a new (to me) boat at the moment these scams are getting out of hand!
Seems there arn't any genuine boats out there!
So i thought i'd do a little scam of my own.
It's not complicated and i wont be bothering you after,
So if you can just all PM me your email address/bank codes with log on details that would be great
P,S i'l take cash if i have to but can you send it to my nigerian cousin, thanks

I tried it-there's no personal info on my PC.

It goes to an anonymous 'enter details' form.

Well this whole buying a bigger rib thing is really starting to pi$$ me off.

What I can't belive is the amount of bids on both boats

It means you don't have a clue where the email's going so they can't be tracked as easily.

Its been a while since we have mentioned anything on the forum but the XPRO 590 that has been appearing on Ebay is a fraud as you have all noticed. The worrying thing is that we received 6 phone calls from people ready to pay this guy the 7500 he was asking by money transfer after he harvested email addresses. If we received 6 calls then we can safely assume that twice this number probably sent money without asking. Be careful guys and girls. Times are hard and fraudsters are becoming very clever. If any of our boats appear for sale, feel free to call us first, we probably know if its a genuine sale or a scam. 01626 366985 if in doubt. So you all know. The 590 on sale was actually sitting in our yard whilst it was on sale on ebay. we tried to find the scammer but they were too well hidden.

All the best
