Just incase anybody is thinking about these two I think they are a con

Both listed in Lerwick with bank trams as payment. I know for a fact the first picture is in Plymouth and actually is of a boat that was for sale about 6 mths ago within my yard, it ended up getting stolen....

The 2nd has identical terms etc and location.

Steer well clear of both - if you want a Zodiac pro take a look at mine where you will get what you pay for!!!

Almost bought a Stolen Ribeye today

Like these two, I had a few people sake me about the red one as mine looks identical, only bigger, they'd been sent photos and offered delivery but clammed up when asked for a phone number.

What's the point. I reported about 15 last month and they are still up there.

Buyer beware

That's odd Peter. I'm currently getting very frustrated with B&O because I'm doing the leg work for them but I have to admit they've taken every one down once I highlighted them.

Like you say it's their job. Not ours. I've reported them too many times to bother.

Now I just highlight the ones I know beyond any reasonable doubt and leave it there. If they want to ruin further their own reputation that's up to them

Yeah, one thing I really don't understand is why they don't have "report this ad" button on the page. Would make life sooo much easier.

I am sure they did have a "report advert" button a while ago, but it disappeared over a year ago maybe two.

Probably because it got pressed SO often! :-)

Ok this morning I've checked the site as usual and found one of my own boats to be used in this scam so I've reported it now.

Whilst I was there I did a 30 day search and reported all the ones I suspect to be fake listings. 99% of them I'm sure on but it's important to advise "suspected" to cover my own A*SE

If yours is on this list I'm sorry but I'm sure you'd do the same.

Just look at the number I found in just 10 mins on one 30 day search with 10,000 as the cut off. that was just skimming over the boats too, mainly engines found as that's what you guys are mostly looking for
