the advert sounds very genuine although I didn't read anywhere that the winner would have to pay a deposit it just said cash on collection .

Payment must be made in full before i arrange delivery. My preferred payment is cash on pickup or by direct deposit into my bank A/C.

Just there.

Personally, I doubt whether the RIB and the person who has your money are related in any way whatsoever.

There are thousands of examples worldwide on a daily basis of people 'grabbing' images for the purposes of scamming.

You'd be better off tracing relevant phone numbers, IP addresses and bank accounts than trying to find the boat IMHO but, as has already been said, I fear your money has now left the country...

This forum has featured several instances of people attempting to carry out 'due diligence' on a rib advertised on the net only to find the person selling it, and the rib itself, strangely elusive...

If six people pay a 1k deposit on the same boat without seeing it, who needs to sell a boat?

Was this a lady whose husband had died by any chance and had moved back to Scotland?

Happy to do all paperwork transfers and you had x number of days through paypal to send it back at her cost?

I have been defrauded out of 1,000.00 as the scum who was selling it has a bank account in Swindon!! The police are on the case and they will catch this person.
Im confused, where is the scam ? advertised as being in scotland and person has a bank account in swindon ? so where is the scam ? is it fraud to advertise a boat somewhere other than where your bank account is ? the information provided does not speak of any kind of scam ?

All the clues were in the ad as shown, NEVER part with cash unless you are standing looking at it with docs to prove
