Default What a Scam

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ADME:B:EF:US:1

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
expence.
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.

Payment:
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.

Gerald Doxen

187 Edgware Road
London
W2 1ET
United Kingdom

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
address.
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
trustworthiness.
Thanks for the conceded time .
I am looking forward to your reply.

Gerald Doxen

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!

Thanks

the first payment and you will have 7 days to test and inspect the boat!You will
be able to return it back on my expences if is not like i advised in my listing.
Right now i will gonna contact ebay square trade thy will gonna send you an
invoice shortly!You will have there all the details that you to complete the
transaction!The boat is ready for shipping,you will receive along with your boat
all the manuals and receipts ,the title is clear and all are in showroom
condition!The only thing i need is the payment confirmation from square
trade!Like you know i'm paying for shipping if is possible help me to lease
declare at Western Union that you send the money to a relative in UK,who needs
the money,and this way,when our deal will be finished and I redraw the money
from W.U.they will not ask me 16% VAT from the total amount that you have send,
they will only ask me 3% or 4%.(ALL OF THIS ONLY IF YOU AGREE).

Thanks.

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.

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
