Nawww, he's just going to pay for a driver to run it across. I've heard the north Atlantic is quite nice this time of the year!

I bid on it this morning and emailed him, I told him I would send him 2 grand extra make sure I had it in two weeks, and told him I was not going to tag it so I would not need a title. we will see what he writes back.

I can help you with all the necessary papers and also with the export plates. However I can take 5 days off if you agree to buy the vehicle. Unfortunately I cannot wait you without having a payment confirmation So forgive me but I'm not dealing with customers that refuse to send payment through Ebay. I'm very sorry for taking that decision but I had many interested customers who called me and asked me to meet them the next days. I've waited for customers from Spain, Germany or Sweden and they never showed up. I decided to use a third party (that's why they exist-to make internet business more easier and more reliable) and to deal only with customers who accept to send a deposit. I can be sure that I will meet you if I will receive a confirmation from Ebay that you are a serious buyer. You can easily see that is mostly a proof that you are a serious buyer and that you also have the money to buy this boat. I promise you that after I will receive the confirmation from Ebay that you send the deposit, I will start the shipping process or if you want to pick it up I will establish a meeting date with you. Anyway dealing through Ebay is the most safest and fastest way of dealing for both of us. So please provide me your full name and address, so I can initiate the transaction through Ebay . After that they will contact you with transaction details, invoice, payment instructions and more information about SquareTrade protection.

Regards,

how about this reply

I just sent him this message:

I am really interested in buying this boat. I have been looking for one exactly like this for several years now. Will you take $60,000 cash for it? Please let me know, I can pay right a way.

Ebay sucks if you are a buyer, breat if you are a seller. People bid their own stuff up and lie like no tomarrow. The feedbach while a great idea can be easily fabricated. It is not the place that it once was if you ask me.

Ask him if you could send him a cashier's check for 5K more than the boat is sold for if he will send you the boat and the extra 5K cash. That's the other scam that people get when they are selling items.

Tell him you have some money in Nigeria and if you could just keep the cash and invest it for him in the Nigerian bank account, hell end up with $11M.

I Wonder If He Pays His Ebay Fees With A Stolen Credit Card. I Have Bought Waverunners And Snowmobiles On Ebay Without A Problem. I Pick The Equipment Up Personally With My Certified Check In Hand. If There Isn`t A Title Present I Walk, I Haven`t Had To Do This Yet.
