Scammed

Hi, if anyone recognises this rib, its supposedly a 2002 nautilus 6.5m with 2004 130hp Honda please let me know. It was advertised on ebay as being in Inverness, Scotland.

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.

Sorry to read about your financial disaster, hopefully you will get your money back, if you do you should have a look at my ring 650 rib with a 150 mariner optimax, which is listed for sale on this site, it's in Scotland you can have had a run in it and then decide if you want to part with money, a big bit safer than Ebay, if it works out and are interested have a look at my advert and give me a shout
All the best
Regards Calum

Sorry you got scammed, but I doubt it was the actual owner of the rib that scammed you. Finding the rib wont do you any good, you need to find the person you paid the money to.

Classic scam ad. The money is probably in Nigeria after being laundered through some unsuspecting fool's account.

Allways check feedback, the seller only had 5 positive for buying had not sold anything before, and the last time he bought owt was May 09.

But having said that it did look tempting, easy for me to talk after the event.

Good luck, I hope you get your money back
