Scam???

How about this for a bargain???

Brig Sports Dive Ribs for sale , Brig 570 Rib fitted with Evinrude ETEC 90hp - Boats And Outboards

Now that to me just stinks scam!

I can just hear it, we will ship it to you for the asking price you just pay up first then if you are not happy with it you can have your money back!!!

The problem is B&O make lots of money from the premium rather phone number so there's not much insentive to remove them.

I emailed them once about one of these ads and they never took it off.

Ive reported loads to b and o and they do not respond and clearly do not give a damn!! Surely there is a cose of conduct they have to follow?
They also used to have ...report this ad icon which has since gone!!

I go by the remit now on that site of if it's a private ad don't bother unless you go to view in person. If its trade account less risk but still do the checks!

You'd think so but there's always some numpty out there who thinks he's going to get lucky! That's why people fall for it.
