Type of a scam Online Purchase
This person is a fraud and a counterfeit! Trying to sell a boat that doesn’t actually exist by taking photo’s off a real company’s website. This is a boat scam that has been all over craigslist. I found this person on OfferUP. Below is our first email conversation after I asked for photo’s of the interior and motor:
Thank you for contacting me about my 2011 SUN TRACKER that I have for sale. This boat is in really good shape, powered by a MERCURY 90HP MOTOR.The boat is rated for 9 OR 1,825 Pounds with MOTOR & GEAR.
The motor starts right up, runs strong and idles smooth.I have a clear title, without liens or loans on it, under my name. The price is firm, $2,500. I’m selling it because my husband died 1 month ago (he had a heart attack) it was his boat and it brings me bad memories, that’s the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible. I, along with my daughter decided to sell the house and so we moved with my parents in Omaha, Nebraska trying to start a new life.I want to use eBay’s Service for the safety of both of us so if you’re interested in purchasing the car just email me with your full name, P.o. Box or address including the zip code and phone number, so I can notify eBay that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
