I sincerely hope OSO Gods are working to fix these problems, one of the reasons I feel the membership fee is justifible is to keep scamers out and mass dealer cut and past adds out. Come on OSO I know you can fix this, OSO is the elite boating site not to be tarnished with these types of problems.

How can they police every ad that gets turned in? This is a new problem, I feel they will get resolved very quickly.

Also were else can you get the exposure of your ad for $40.00 for 90 days?

I invested 900.00 bucks in January to sell my boat.

OSO

boattrader online

Boat trader mag

Yacht trader mag

all the Good leads have came from OSO or Yacht trader.

just my .02 cents. Tom

THere are a lot of them right now in the auto section. I think the range rover and the mercedes are both scams. I trying to figure out how to get the guy busted, becasue he has ebay involved in it also.

First off, it's 10k below market. I contacted him and he would only sell it through ebay "for both our safety" he wanted me to provide him with personal information before we could proceed. He will not answer his phone or call me. I told him I was local and would come complete the transaction in person, no response....SCAM !!!!!!!

I moved my ad to the swap shop section to seperate it from all the dealer ads and scams in the classified section. I felt the classifieds should be for people to post in, not dealers. Most of their ads on new stuff are leader ads to get you to buy something else or to upgrade something anyway. Your individual ad is just what youve got in the picture not a lot full.
