.cc is the domain registration for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, an Australian territory. I think the boating press and reputable retail websites should take more care over who they accept advertising from.

Nick, agreed. In this case however I replied to what appeared to be a private ad on B&O, the email reply driected me to their website and the .cc domain. When I went to find the ad again it had been pulled, I'm outboard shopping at the moment and scan B&O daily, I've reported about 6 scams all of which have been pulled within 24 hrs.
