Did you let the website know that it's a scam? Good eye Sean!

Do people actually fall for these scams? Who sends that kind of money to someone without going to look at it first. This one says its in the UK. You'd have to be a fool to send money out of the country sight unseen.

Angry Re: Someone is selling my boat. Scam

Seems like they changed the add. Did you report this one too? They changed the picture and the wording. What a jerk.
