If I knew anyone looking for a used boat I'd sell them mine, not tell them to go somewhere else! Either that or send them to the OSO classifieds!

Besides, ablboats doesn't make money by selling boats, they make money by getting listings.

Funny, he offered to list my boat for $300. Said no and dropped down to $200. Told me he had a buyer. Offered a finders fee if in fact he had a buyer. He said no. He called back a week later and did not remember he already talked to me. Had a buyer again. This time he got pissed when I started to play with him.

Yep, that's how they do it. It's as close to a scam as can be legally, since it's tough to prove they didn't have a buyer, or weren't "trying" to sell your vehicle.

They figure if they call 20 people a day, at $500 each, if 5 of them agree they've had a good day.
