Just need to be careful. I called a guy on Boatsandoutboards regarding a cheap Suzuki df90 and whilst it seemed genuine (in terms of he may of actually had the motor) he wanted me to send him the cash in the post, recorded mail.
I offered BACS, declined. Said "the post is pretty good around here". When I explained RM will only cover upto £500 if sent special delivery he said I'd have to take a chance on it but he'd let me know when it arrived!
Sorry but I'm not daft enough to risk £2,500 on that basis. Buyer beware!
