And the two cars you can see in the photos both have UK plates, not Northern Irish plates! Same email address as the above scam too.

I reckon a lot of members on here are reporting him but he just seems he hacks another account and off he goes again!

I feel for the people who fall for these scams I mean its challenging enough for people who know what they're talking to avoid them.

I've emailed him again as I did when he last posted it up, I complimented him on a nice garden in the picture and pointed out it was my garden, I also ask him how stupid he was trying to sell such a high profile boat that clearly wasn't his to sell

I came across a different scam when I was searching for a rib. I saw a boat on eBay and decided to do some background research on the model. This lead me to an advert for the same model of boat but with a very low asking price - perhaps a third of the true value. I emailed to ask about it and got a story that it was the deceased grandfather's boat and located in Cardiff but the seller was somewhere else. I then looked at the photographs and realised they were the same as the ebay boat. The ebay boat was located in the Midlands and seemed genuine. It was clearly a scam but I could not see how it could work unless the boat was bought without viewing and money transferred before collection. Or did I miss something?
