Thats the one, it changed phone numbers the day after my first contact, my next line would have been < I have a mate who lives in Dundee/Bristol or where ever she would have claimed the boat was who would call by and look over it for meAs you know "Trade It" pulled it.

- you think that someone would attempt to enforce a scam contract which would almost certainly be easy to prove he didn't own the boat at the time of the sale
- or you think the boat might be worth 15k!
- This is a flaw I agree..
- How much would it take to buy your morals then eh? 75k would buy you a pretty nice second hand 11m Redbay...
- Is this a condition of ebay sale? That you must own the item before you list it? Agreed it would seem sensible but surely car dealerships etc would be on dodgy ground here, listing things they don't actually own?
- Ok, 11/12 maybe but no less than that. 5.6m (ok...6m..) boat, not huge hours, good condition, desirable motor...?

I can't be bought I am afraid. I suspect most people would treat anyone offering them way over the odds for a boat with suspicion, especially if said buyer had just before been selling the same boat without permission.

Some highlights:

While using eBay sites, services, applications and tools, you will not:
  • breach any laws, third party rights or our policies;
  • use our sites, services, applications or tools if you are not able to form legally binding contracts (for example if you are under 18), or are
  • fail to deliver items purchased from you, unless the buyer fails to meet the posted terms, or you cannot contact the buyer;
  • post false, inaccurate, misleading, defamatory, or libellous content;
  • copy, modify, or distribute rights or content from our sites, services, applications or tools or eBay's copyrights and trademarks;
  • sell any counterfeit items or otherwise infringe the copyright, trademark or other rights of third parties.

And they are just in the first page!

Not sure why you think dealers don't own the cars they sell?

- Ok, 11/12 maybe but no less than that. 5.6m (ok...6m..) boat, not huge hours, good condition, desirable motor...?[/QUOTE]
25% off just like that!
