    Default Suspicious Ebay listing for Flying Fish

    Short time; free shipping; no reserve. I have alerted eBay.

    It is item 190048183359.

    I hope I'm wrong, but if I'm right I hope it helps you Russ.

    Regards-

    Terry Chapman

    Out of interest to see what the scam is as the guy wants you to contact him before you bid I contacted him to ask why this was necessary and this was his reply within minutes some mug has already put a bid in. Could it be Russ has moved to Romania lol.



    hello there!

    The boat is in very good vorking condition.

    buy it now for $4,800!

    I will pay for shipping!

    I am located in Braila,Romania!

    The Boat it is stored at ebay warehouse in Ohio, Cincinati , US , the

    Boat will be shipped

    from there on my expence .

    Terms & Conditions Shipping and handling:

    The shipping address must be provided before sending the payment. The

    Boat will be shipped trough DAS Shipping Company . The Boat will only

    be sent after receiving the payment. I agreed with eBay to send my Boat

    to its warehouse since I am not in US .This way, both sides (seller and

    buyer) are insured by eBay.

    If the Boat is different than the way i've described it, 100% refund -

    transfer fees and the Boat will be shipped back to eBay's warehouse on

    my expence. Anyway, i don't think it will be necesary, you'll love this

    Boat from very first moment you'll see it.

    Buy with confidence!

    Instructions for the payment :

    You need to provide me all this information:

    Your ebay user id: ...

    Last name: ...

    Address: ...

    City: ...

    State: ...

    Zip: ...

    Country: ...

    name of the item you want to buy and the price we agreed....After you

    will give me all this informations I will contact ebay warehouse to send

    you an invoce with all the terms of the deal.

    Thanks for the conceded time .I am looking forward to your reply.

    That is just further proof that it is a scam.

    I used to live in Cincinnati. If I still did, I would call his bluff and ask to see the machine.

    Looks like ebay has now terminated it. There is no longer any record of this listing.

    Thanks for that folks. It IS a scam. Its the second time hes listed it.



    I know the craft, and i know who's got them, so god knows how they got the pics etc, never seen them online before.



    The funny thing is that the listign c laimed to be in Edenbridge - about 30 mile sfrom here. So i offred him 1600 and said i'd pick it up. Seems he'd rather 'Post the item to you....'



    Good scam tho - the 'sell it' to a friend - but he can't go thru with it. So then you get offred it as a second chance. Gues sthat lowers defences.



    In any case, don't touch it -it IS a scam!
