dodgey prices

Hi, i saw an ad on boats and outboards for a zodiac 733 full kitted out for 6k, i emailed the guy to see if the price was right. I reciceved an email telling me there are more pics on the website [url]www.wake-board.co.cc [url] all their ribs are cheap
Are these prices real or a scam...?


Cheers
Cammy

Which of you Inner Voices will you listen to, Cammy?

The one that says "silly price, cash up front to a man in a far away land -must be a scam "

or

The one that says "I want a 733 for 6k"?

Orders are not processed until we receive confirmation from our Bank Account payment provider that the payment has been made and authorized.

Then that is when the real charges start to arrive.

Usa tax

Usa export tax

Delivery charges.

Extra shipping charges.

customs tax uk

ce cert fees

finder fees.

the list goes on and on in the end you may have paid 6 times the value of the vessel
and still not got any thing.

There also is no guarantee your even get the one advertised.

Big scam

The guy sounds like the same one that has been thrown of O & B many times.
