I am looking at buying and engine/part from him, but have had problems contacting him - his 0800 number diverts to a mobile voicemail. So before I part with any cash, I'd like to be sure that this guy is legimate.

Thanks, S.
It's Cooper,at his mothers address again...

There is an ad on 'boatsandoutboards' for an engine (http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F210118), and it turns out it is the same guy from 'outboardspares.net'. On this ad, the address is listed as Hampshire???

Is this Dan Cooper?

Well, http://www.Outboardspares.net is listed as being at Dan Cooper's address. I somehow doubt the engine is in Hampshire if it's him.

It also appears the domain has only just been set up-it's still showing as 'For Sale'.

Dodgy fooker ain't he.
Looks like he's pulled his finger out and made an effort.

I like your style biffer,
Unfortunately sometimes the only way these people can be dealt with properly is "face to face"

He obviously has no regard for the law or anyone else for that matter,and to be honest I am disgusted with ebay and the other companys for letting him carry on trading,including restarting up in a different name.
