wightbay scams

Just a quick heads up. Three too good to be true ribs on wightbay at present Avon, Valiant and Ribtech. have had a couple of customers getting very excited. All seems fine phone number answers but will only take paypal payment. If you ask too many questions the phone stops answering. Looks like he is photographing local boats then sticking them on. Be careful all.
