Some people must still fall for this -
Well I approached somebody on B&O about a boat I liked the look of and got this back when I said I wanted to come and look at it........
"I am currently detached with my work for the next 2 weeks, reason why we can`t schedule a viewing at this time. I can transport it to your location by shipping company and takes about 4-5 days. They work very simple and will arrange the payment and delivery for the RIB. The transaction is done in 3 easy steps:
1) The boat and the documents are received by the shipping company;
2) A technical and legal inspection is made, then you are informed about the it`s condition;
3) The payment is made to the transport company through bank transfer and once they have the confirmation of the payment, they deliver it to your address;
After you receive the boat you will have it in custody for 3 days to decide if you will keep it or not, based on it's condition as described in the listing. During these 3 days, the shipping company will hold the payment, pending your confirmation. Let me know if you agree and we will go forward with a deal. I have other people interested in this boat at the moment as well, so a prompt decision/response is appreciated."
I mean really......it's just not going to happen!
