In fact, ALL the descriptions and pics are stolen from that site-just did a websearch on key text and it's all from motors they've sold- including the one he's got feedback for! The other item he has feedback for is directly stolen from santa-barbera craiglist.com. I think this is a very clever fraudster-he appears to have hacked at least 2 high feedback ebay accounts.

For the bidders on 3454jane's outboards

Reply from the website the descriptions come from-just so you're 100% sure it IS a scam.

Thanks
We have already reported them

Subject: Ebay fraud using your advert


Someone with the ebay ID 3454jane is using your website descriptions to commit fraud in the UK. See link.

Guess it's time to leave it alone now!
