    they can usually get the offending address neutralized within hours, but, by then, the scammers have moved on to new zombies.

    Serious Ebayers know what to look for, there are also examples of the first posy here on EBAY.
    I also got the hoax email, but I got smart on their policies before I started listing items.

    One mans junk is another mans treasure!

    He finally answered. Same boat was for sale at same price 4 months ago, by same guy, with same answer from him. He even replied once with the same text but the word boat was replaced for bike, so automated respond system, but some error when is the answer from him. IT IS B*LLSH*T !!!

    ello and thank you for your interest,

    This boat is like new, with no marks, no hidden defects. It looks great and it is in excellent condition, I have only used it for a very short time. My job put me on the way to US and I bought this boat for the years I spent there. Now I have to sell it as I've got back home in Italy, Europe. However a friend of mine from US will arrange shipping. The boat is located and registered in US. This is a one owner boat and it has a clear US title, which will be forwarded to you with the boat upon receipt of money. If you are interested in buying it the final price is $30,000.00. The boat is located in US and will be shipped after you will send payment. Trailer is also included.
    I will handle all shipping arrangements and costs. It will take no more than 14-16 days for the shipping company to deliver the boat to you. All documents, including owner's manual, clear title and a bill of sale on your name will be provided along with the boat. The transaction will be made under eBay's protection plan for our safety. Your funds will be 100% insured by Ebay who will hold and insure your money until receipt of the boat in good conditon. You will have 15 days from the time you receive the boat to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not. If you wish to purchase please provide me your full name, address and also your eBay user Id so I can initiate the deal through eBay.

    If you are really interested in buying it please reply asap, cuz' I have lots of interested customers.
