Ebay scammer...

hi.. I looked at buying this boat about 2 months ago.. Western Union stopped the money transfer saying they believed it to be fradulent.. Beware!!! A few other things didn't quite match either..

Up for auction/sale is a model year 2000 Avon Rover RIB (rigid inflatable boat) R 310 model. It comes with a 1999 model year Yamaha 15hp outboard engine with very few (less than 20) hours all of which are freshwater. The boat itself is in very, very good condition with very few (if any) flaws whatsoever as it should as it has seen very light use in it's lifespan. The Yamaha outboard performs exactly as it should and also included is a new Yamaha OEM fuel tank. Please contact me directly at my work e-mail address(for a fast reply) before bidding or if you have questions. Thank you

Payment by Western Union is always suspicious!

There's a website somewhere done by a bloke who exposed the gangs who try it on with Western Union scams... sorry I can't remember more about it.
