    Yea, thought so. The giveaway was; there were no registration numbers on the boat, in any pictures-yet he rode it 20 some odd hours. Also, the picture of the boat on the dealer crate, was a different boat, than the other picture. And, there was no hull HIN# listed in the ad-which I believe is an E-bay requirement now(most post VIN/HIN numbers).
    So, that had scam written all over it. OH, and he wanted an $800 deposit, within 24 hours after the sale. Why $800?? And why does he need the deposit within 24 hours? Probably because that was the "scam" amount, and my guess would be you would be sending that $800 to Jamaica, via e-mail or Skype, using a Walmart Green Dot money card(you just scratch off the back, and give them that number, and they have your money).

    Remember; I they ask you to Wire, they are a Liar"!!!!

    These type of scammers are almost exclusively coming from Jamaica these days. Did you happen to notice that the "seller" didn't proof read his ad?? Some misspelled words, and incorrect grammar. You would think, for such an expensive item, you would re-read your ad, and make sure it's perfect........

    A good sign of a scam sale if it the pictures look like they are in a smaller diameter and especially if each picture is different sizes, as well as a one to two sentence description should raise red flags! But always check the pics out if they are small, red flag!
