Scam or bargain of the century - Zodiac inflatables on ebay

New Zoom by Zodiac 230 Slat Floor Inflatable Boat 2+1 | eBay UK

It must be a scam at that price (plus the seller has 0 feedback). I've just click buy it now but am going to wait and see what his feedback looks like in a few days before handing any money over. It would cost more than what he's charging to post them!!

What's up with that? Apart from the 6-8 day delivery time being a tad ambitious!

59 eBay and paypal accounts kindly supplied to try to hack and if all else fails he has 59 emails to spam!!

Could be a typo but he's not obliged to commit to the sale as he's not reg as a business trader. He (like the buyer often does) will simply walk away from the account. Zero feedback too. Bit too ambitious to hope it's a typo with a zero feedback seller.

Had it been from a seller with good feedback I'd have taken a punt and the typo hope but even then he would not be offering free UK delivery would he

If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck - its a duck!

Good luck though!!
