    Go to your local Office Depot/Staples/Office Max and get a Counterfeit Detection Pen. I bought one for $2 bucks when I sold a truck for cash a few months ago.

    Between the scam guys and boat brokers I am getting these emails from my boat trader on line add every week. I just wish my boat would sell to end all this madness!

    Well you were correct My sale went flawless he did local cash advance ponied up th 16 K in cash and took it away. Know I feel guilty for not trusting him but I guess that is part of bussiness. I did have to wire his blinkers to send him home to Canada 98 degrees 100% humidity laying on the black top but he and his wife were very nice people so I had no regret. Still hard to trust anyone with all this internet scam crap.
    PS Need a whipple for a 500 efi got cash
