E Bay Scam!

There is an Osprey Eagle 6 on e bay
Item No 321143398082
The 'advertiser' says the boat is in Scotland
Well, it was in Scotland last year but my mate bought it and it lived on Anglesey for a bit and is now in Cheshire
I have just spoken to the current owner to make sure it hadn't been stolen!
So don't bid on it peeps, I have reported it to E Bay
The pictures of the vessel are the ones I took in my Mate's place and most of the 'wording' has been lifted from My original advert I made
The Scammin bastid

What's a real coincidence
I didn't know the rib was back on e bay
Yesterday I had a phone call from a Guy in Scotland is the rib still for sale
I said no, sold a couple of Months ago
He said well its back on
Funny, I said we bought it from Scotland
A place called Ardrishaig right by the Crinan canal
Och aye the noo he said, you won't believe it that's where I live!!!
You just couldn't make it up!

Try'd the phone number and got a doctors clinic lol, then got a return email from a woman saying it was her husbands who had died and she needed to pay the mortgage etc etc, she said she would put it on ebay , send me a link and I could pay via pay pal?? Oh and she had move to Scotland from Bristol, Trade It remove the add and others as on going scams.
