RIBase
Scam - in what sense?

Does the (ficticious seller) try and obtain money from potential buyers - in the form of a deposit to secure a boat that doesn't actually exist?

This is what they do....

This was the email that he sent me in repy to an enquiry about the 2k tornado.
-------------------
Hello,

I am selling this rib for 2,000.00 including delivery anywhere in UK.I set at a "very, very low" price to guarantee a sale. The only reason is that I need cash for a family emergency. I have to tell you that I'm currently out of town with some major problems so pick up/view isn't an option. If you want to buy this vehicle email me back with your full name and address to start the official procedure trough eBay. They will send you a notification with ALL the info regarding delivery, purchase protection and refund policy so please provide your details before more questions. You will find 90% of answers in that notification from eBay!

Thanks

--------------------

Stay away!!
