Perhaps if they concentrated all of that energy and web code writing experience into building a real business, they may make the same returns and avoid the risk of doing porridge. Or are there really that many gullible buyers out there?

Hello,

The boat is delivered directly from our supplier.

That is why we are offering the 30 day trial period.

They have an interesting returns policy (not that you'll ever receive the goods).

From their website:

Quote:
Returns Policy

If you find that something you ordered from us is not right for you, feel free to return it
to us for a full refund or exchange.

If you have received an incorrect or faulty item please return it to us by first class post
and of course we will refund the cost of postage in this case.

Your returns must be made within 30 days of receipt of the item, they must be returned in
their original packaging, accompanied with your receipt.
Aye, that will be right!

Just enlarged some of the screens on the Navs on the boats and "others", put the coordinates in and one was in Cuba and the other, a cruiser on a trailer was slap bang between Scotland and Norway.

Just make sure when you return your 5m RIB and 150HP OB that they are wrapped in the same packaging as they were delivered in. Hope the letterbox is large enough.

Can I please suggest that someone involved in this please report it?

Report fraud and internet crime | Action Fraud

It is best done by someone who has been in contact with the alleged fraudster.

The IBAN is for a UK bank as it starts GB. My UK bank statement has IBAN details, I assume in case I want someone from non-UK to give me money.
