I have asked for info on the Mariner 90 and asked for a call back, using the local Police stations number.
I can't help smiling thinking of the poor sods reaction when they answer the phone.........
I never did get another email when I said I would use my air miles to go look at the last one in Sumatra either.........

Try again, they've reappeared. 3 of the 1st 4 are scams.

Funny, that doesn't look like a scam. Are you sure?

What raised my suspicion was that the two adverts listed same boat in both Lincolnshire and Devon. I offered to go and visit the Devon one and got the following response I got from a hotmail address

"I can arrange shipping to your address.The shipping company will transport the boat at your address and you will have up to 10 days to test it in a near lake.After the testing period you can make a decision if you will buy it or not.I think this is the best way because you have this testing period.
If you agree please email me the address where you want to receive it and i will pay all the charges from my pocket.No extra money for you."

Just seemed a bit suspect to me, but you might be right - what do you reckon, dodgy or not?
