This is a scam!

Avon Rib Tender for sale , Avon Searider Rigid Inflatable Boat - Boats And Outboards

This pic was around a few years ago on B&O after several phone calls I found the rest of the pics and the boat lives in the USA.

Is Seven Boats a known scam then? If so, I shall have to get them a bit better known on the Internet, nothing comes up under either their registered or trading name, when searching for fraud, scams etc.

They have a boat that I wanted to buy, but I didn't like that they are not trading under the name they are registered with at Companies House, or that they have not been trading long enough to submit accounts and their company return is overdue. Also website registered in Spain, company director a plastic surgeon in France, registered office not findable on Google Maps..... and I can afford boats there that I could not get on Ebay for that price.

I have mailed them to say I will buy now but need to pay by credit card, as I am sure they understand that there are many naughty people on the Internet and I need the credit card insurance cover .... let's see if they reply

Damn.... anyone else want to sell me a half price sport boat?

Off to report them to Companies House and the internet powers that be. Funnily enough, the grammar in their email back to me deteriorated markedly when I started discussing difficult topics like payment protection.

It's worrying that nothing comes up in Google when looking for "seven boats scam". Will try to remedy that.

Here's another suspected scam!


Sent to our eBay listing for a budget boat, you'd think they'd at least send it to an advert it might relate to

I'm sure Byron Baddoo was a name used by a scambaiter on 419eaters...
