Does this look like a scam or what? Look at the feed back comments lots of 1p deals.

I could be wrong but that 10ft speed boat looks like a picture of a plastic model cut and pasted into a real one.
The "Hison" engine also looks like the name has been pasted onto a real picture.
And why would anyone want to buy a 1p picture that you could get from the web for nowt, it seems like a scam to build up feedback..........

Well the COMPANY exists... but the ebay user looks really dodgy.
I've just sent an enquiry. It looks like a copy of the post-clamshell carbed mariner 60.

Amazing how many people want to spend 1p to buy pictures of Shakira or Aston Martins ... and amazing how all of them spell picture as "piture".

I shant argue about it looking dodgy-I think it's probably a scam....but the bad spelling is from the original listing-not by the person leaving the feedback.

The ebay listing fee for an item of 1p value is 15p plus final value fee. So for each and every picture sold it cost the guy nearly 15p!
I wouldn't touch this guy with a barge pole!

Christ. I've just seen how much this guy has sold. Here's the info I was holding back.

I've just been in contact with the company in China that makes those motors-they are direct copies of the 3 cyl mercs......but they are $3120 USD each, minimum order of 10. There's no way this is legit.

<edit> Oh dear. Look what just happened to his 'perfect' feedback

Worst thing is the number of people he's conned though-and the amount.

Do a completed listings search on him.
