Default I found my boat for sale on craigslist??????

My boat is not for sale but someone is pulling a scam on craigslist, other than messing with them what do you do?

Send them a fake bank check for 10% over the asking price and ask for the change back.

Call him and tell him you are a policeman, that this boat was reported stolen and you would like to discuss it at HQ.

When I was looking, I found one, and when I called the people gave me another number to call, and come to find out it was a joke, the people I called gave me the guys number that put the ad up, etc... They thought it was funny, I thought it was a waste of my time!
