Hi Guys,
Just a heads up for all those selling boats, have been approached about selling mine and received this today:

Thank you for your reply.
I would like to inform you that am OK with the price and willing to pay for price,I would have love to come personally for viewing but am not around due to nature of my work And believe that is in good
condition base on your explanation, Arrangement for the payment and the pick up by my Transporter when Cheque clears in your account,my bank will post Order Cheque from my bank  ,The cheque will take only 2-3 days to  cleared to your account which will be sent to you soon. I want you to send the following details:

1, Full name

2, Full Address

3, Mobile Number

More important there will be some excess fund on the cheque  that for the transportation.
Am buying this in good faith and trust.
I will wait for your response as soon as possible.

Thanks

Ian

Yes likewise, EXACTLY The Same message to me today.
Maybe this Sophia is cornering the market in second-hand boats for her, "South Sea" fleet ?
It did sound too good to be true !

Yes I have exactly the same Email.

Just written back declining the offer of a cheque and suggested cash when the driver comes to collect?

I doubt the person will respond, and if they do then  will treat is as spam!
