Default A New Scam?

Here's a new one, - I get an e-mail asking to collect as many pics as possible of my boat. Sounds ok, but oh by the way I'm supposed to be sure to send my VIN!

I can think of about 4 reasons why a thief would want all that documentation, and about 800 reasons why I would not want to give it to them.

I'm posting on a couple different forums just to see wassup!

sounds to me like someone is going to set up a auction for a boat they don't own, then when a buyer see's that he has lots of photo's , he will beleive that the so called seller is really has this boat when in fact its all a scam
