    What a Scam

    55oo.oo for an htm cat??????? I Inquired and heres the email i got , then I email another question from a diffrent emaill account and his response was boat was in a ca warehouse, cant even keep his story straight LOL
    Dear Sir ,

    I want to be honest with you and I inform you that i have 2 buyers interested in
    this boat, they are willing to pay the buy it now price .To be fair with all
    possible buyers I will sell the boat to the first buyer that will arange the
    Square Trade first payment . If you are able to make the first payment today or
    tomorrow you will be the next owner of this boat.
    First I will like to tell you that I am in United Kingdom and the boat is
    stored at ebay warehouse in NY, the machine will be shipped from there on my
    The boat is like new , in perfect condition . I am selling this boat because the
    shipping to Europe will cost me to much.I have this boat from my father in law
    .The Buy it now price is $5,500 . I will sell the unit to the first one that
    makes a 2,800 $ deposit through Square Trade .

    Terms & Conditions Shipping and handling:
    The shipping address must be provided before sending the payment. The boat will
    be shipped through JC MOTORS or DAS Shipping Company . The boat will only be
    sent after receiving the payment. I agreed with eBay Square Trade to send my
    boat to its warehouse since I am not in US .
    This way, both sides (seller and buyer) are insured by eBay.

    If you will offer the buy it now price I will suport all the shipping from the
    warehouse to your address .
    For the payment i would like to use eBay Square Trade as a third party . They
    will keep your money until you get the boat and will release it to me upon
    delivery .
    Here are my name and address you need for the payment in case you decide to buy
    the boat.

    The boat is ready for shipment, i just need the payment confirmation from Square
    Trade with the transfer's details and the boat will be delivered to your
    REFUND-After the boat arrives, you have a 7 days period for inspection. If the
    boat is different than the way i've described it, 100% refund - transfer fees
    and the boat will be shipped back to the warehouse on my expence. Anyway, i
    don't think it will be necesary, you'll love this boat from very first moment
    you'll see it.
    Buy with confidence!
    I will have pay for an insurance to eBay Square Trade as proof my
    Thanks for the conceded time .
    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Re: What a Scam

    Im going to just mess with this guy making him think im falling for the scam,, Heres email i asked about the history of the boat and why its being sold

    Hi again,

    The boat is used by my father in law and i don't know many thinks about the
    boat.He die one year ago and the boat whas garage kept.You have my guarantee
    that the boat is exactly like you see in the pics.Anyway you have 7 days to
    inspect the boat,if the boat is not like you've expected you will return it back
    to square trade warehouse on my expences.I think is more than fair.If you are
    rady to make the first payment please provide me your full name and address so i
    can open square trade case regarding our deal!They will gonna give you all the
    details that you need to complete the transaction!

    Now someone needs to e-mail this guy and ask him 'why are you selling MY boat!' just to fuk with this a-hole! Tell him that the auction was reported to ebay and I bet its gone within 10 minutes.

    Re: What a Scam

    tell him you can only send even amounts and will need to send $6000 instead of $5500. Ask if he can send you the $500 refund first through pay pal and than you will send the $6000
