The amount of stuff he has listed is ridiculous
Yes that is mine. It was my images and my description.

Ive rather frustratingly just lost a second buyer. Having agreed to buy a boat that was advertised very clearly as not having a trailer he now saids i should thrown in a trailer. Mine is therefore re advertised (genuinely) with a 3K price drop. XS 600 with 115HP Mercury (2010)

What's the description of the boat/gear? The numbers don't seem to find anything when you put them into the eBay search.

I'm in the city but my presence won't be necessary as I prearranged the deal with PayPal. The vessel is at the shipping yard, ready to be delivered. You benefit of free delivery, having it delivered at your address in less than 5 working days. Afterwards you will have 5 days to test and inspect the vessel prior to make any purchase. If by any reason you find something you don't like about it, you can send it back at my expense. If you are settled in buying it I will need the following details from you: full name, address, and phone#.
Once I have your info I am going to forward it to PayPal to get things started. After that PayPal will contact you with all the information that you need in order to buy it. This will be your proof that I am a covered and legitimate seller. Waiting for your email with the requested details.

Well I see nothing wrong with that......... GUFFAW!!!!

Ebay have pulled it. When its a scam they delete the auction details as well, never to be seen again.

Yeah, they are pretty good at that thankfully. Unfortunately some do occasionally still get caught out though.

Might have been good to string him along for a while though! I did that with a "seller" when I looked to buy my rib and found a dodgy ad.

It would be good if people screen captured them - so we can all see how bad the scammers are.

These scammers have been at the same sort of tricks on E bay for some time. The story always is that for some reason they cannot meet up ie they are on a rig , abroad ,pilot etc etc. The one I got involved with told me that he was in the army and on active duty blah blah, by this time I had worked out he was not all he appeared to be so I asked him which barracks he was stationed at. Some place way up north was his swift reply ( I cannot recall the exact place) I replied that he was in luck and that I was a serving soldier and I was being sent from my base in Hereford to this place in the north. Needless to say never had a reply. Regards Jim
