Good advice Richard. I don't intend to buy it, it just looks like a good price for a lot of power......That is if it's not a scam (the bit about delivery makes me think it might be)

I'm certain it's a scam- NADA is the National Automobile Dealers Assoc from America and NADA average refers to condition.

The seller seems that they don't want anyone to see the outboard. Its apparently in devon, but the advert seems very american, i.e 'shipping',

Another dodgy advert:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=280031661228

1. Incorrect Picture
2. Do wetline even make ribs?
3. Yamaha have never made a 7hp outboard!

I think that ebay one is genuine just someone who has made a mistake about the engine.

I supose this could be a genuine advert, but it just seemed strange they had taken that picture from someone else's advert who was selling the actual boat in the picture.

I thought waveline or wetline only made small sibs?

They've listed it as cash on collection so I supose they must have one for sale just not the one in the picture. If they said paypal only then I certainly wouldn't buy it.

Nos4r2 26 September 2006 10:48

and the name-says Waveline on the pic...

These ones really annoy me:

They are obviously a scam! Earlier in the year My ebay account was hacked onto, and about 20 of these type of adverts were listed though my account, Ebay charges came to over 150!!!

Luckily I contacted ebay quickly and they had the adverts deleted within 24 hours and the charges removed.

The surprising thing was people WERE emailing me!!! I had to keep telling them it was a fraudster advert! Although it was tempting... ;)
