outboard scam

Anyone noticed the too good to be true outboards on boats and outboards, pair of optimax, pair of fourstroke yam,s new fourstroke yam 90 etc.All at amazing prices, I called one of the numbers and got a local football club in Leeds!. If you mail you get guided to this site http://www.aquatrix.co.cc/ they are also in the classified sections of this months boating mag's.

I just asked about an outboard that was too good to be true and was this mob.
They weren't even consistent in the ad and answer
