    Like they always say---if it is too good too be true it probably is. This is happening every day with e-bay and people are still falling for it. Run as far away as you can. If you can't touch the guy who is buying your boat, don't get near the deal...

    See if you can torment them a bit. Tell them you don't believe they are real and ask them to send you a pic of them with a bucket on their head waving a british flag in each hand and wearing a white t shirt with d.i.c.k. written on it in black magic marker. Thats good for a start. Next go to the marinas in the area and ask if they have any trashed boats to be destroyed , find one and get the buyer to get the shipping company to come and pick it up freight collect. The scammer will think he is getting your boat for free and will pay the freight to get it for that cost alone. Hope he likes paying for the ss minnow shipped to nigeria.

    Here is a follow up on the original post. The receiver of the certified check called the lending institution printed on the check. He gave them the routing number and they told him that the check was counterfeit. YTD that particular lending institution claimed they are approaching 2 million in fraudulent checks usually involving internet trading. I had no idea this was such a problem.
