eBay 5.2 Shakesspeare with Mariner 90 201039192944 Whiffy?

Ending today with lots of interest and seller sounds knowledgeable on email but my radar twitched for a few reasons so if you're in there I'd suggest caution:

Pay via eBay for mutual "protection"
He'll arrange delivery
Phone number not forthcoming
New on eBay with zero feedback

http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/201039192944

Might be genuine but might be a more sophisticated advert recycler.

I was looking as well but something just doesn't feel right..

A quick google search shows it was on boats and outboards with the same description. Couldn't see a post date on it though.

I think 69cmw rushed in and nabbed it!

Seriously though I do think it's whiffy especially now you've shown the B&OB asking vs what it sold for on fleabay. Maybe someone got a bargain and we'll hear it actually was a good'un.

RIBase
I bet if you asked to go view it first it's in the far north of Scotland, and their phone has not been connected because they've only just moved and their mobile has been lost or stolen and they're probably selling on behalf of a recently sick/passed away family member! I had a couple of those types of offers before I got my rib.

I think if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Not guilty, I didn't buy it, funny enough though the advert has been removed from eBay when I last looked.
