Default BOATPIX.com

Had a small Helicopter buzz me yesterday taken pictures of my boat and others, has BOATPIX.COM written on the side, when to the website and they want a Credit Card before you can even take a look at what the took a picture of!

Is this a scam....I have a feeling it is!

I paid to see the pictures. If they would have been a better quality, I would have bucked up for them, but there would have had to been some serious negotiation going on. $700 for 3 pictures is higher than a giraffe's as$!

Wish I'd have researched before filling out the online forms. Pics not that great, sent them back. Had to pay shipping and ins. charges both ways. I guess a $50 lesson is an inexpensive one in the boating world

I've had pics from them 3 diff. times and never had any issues. You can get them to e-mail you proofs but they will be lower quality and watermarked. Pick the ones you want then give them a lowball offer. They will take a lower offer because it is better than nothing!!

Make sure you correspond by e-mail and get everything in writing!!!
