I saw this boat on craigslist, and I ahve always thought most things like this are too good to be true...Emailed seller and he gave me link to ebay auction..does anyone think this is a scam or is it to good to be true? might have to copy/paste the link..

if you can pay with paypal and make sure you are protected with in their rules you should be ok. Anyway else other than cash on delivery is suspect. Actually if selling on ebay you have to take paypal and I didn't see anything on there about PP, just moneygram...RED FLAG

It's a scam. We found a boat on craigslist a while back with the same shipping info that yours is showing. The listing said it was in St. Louis, but when we contacted the seller we got a load of bs - said it was in a warehouse, wanted the money sent somewhere else, blah, blah, blah. Also, look at all the misspelling and grammatical errors - another giveaway that it's crapola.

this guy has all his bases covered...If you call him he won't answer questions just say OH YEA EBAY INSURANCE HAS YOU COVERED, meantime you might be out of your money and how do you send a stolen boat back other than to the rightful owner...Boy that could get expensive...And if you pay moneygram I don't think ebay will cover you even if you buy it thru ebay...There's a reason he wants full payment within 24hours also.

If you offer to pay cash when he delivers the boat he will say I am using a shipping service and you have to pay in advance so you can't pay cash.

I wouldn't touch this deal unless he will take paypal.

Scam, look at the seller profile, the feed back section does not work properly.

need to find someone local to him and call him and say we want to come pick it up, from him so he can sign title and stuff

My antivirus program just red flagged the ad for phishing. I'd drop it like a hot potato.

That looks like my old boat. I wonder who the fellow is in Toledo. I lived there from 1950-1963.

total scam - had the same one on Missouri site, when you ask about driving it, they say the boat is stored somewhere else, etc... STAY AWAY
