rib scam

hi just to let you know i was looking on boatshop 24 avon 620 for sale guy said he was working in scotland and said i could have boat for less than he was selling as long as i ageed i would buy it and that i had got the funds he said he will put it on ebay on a buy it now so i could pay right away and he would deliver boat to my house at no cost to me and that i would be coverd for the money if things whent wrong by ebay . but i looked at this boat on ebay last year it was on there for ages before it was sold so when it came back on boatshop 24 i checked back on ebay and found the orignal sale and phoned the real owner and he said i dont think this guy would sell it yet as he was chuffed to bits with it .so recon hes used photoes to sell boat he dosent have. sure its a scam

if your serious about buying dont buy unseen and dont part with cash with promise of delivery. If its too far away etc wait - another will be along if your patient.
