Guys, just want to let you know there is a scam going on targeting boat sellers. I just went through it and sniffed it out before I got burned. I got an email within a couple of hours of listing my boat on Boat Trader. The email address is [email protected] and he and I went back and forth with some very basic Q&A about the boat. He then made me an offer almost my asking price which I said ok to. No survey, sea trial, or even look at the boat-suspicious! Then it got very suspicious when his phone number was in Miami, he gave me an address in Austin which was a UPS/Western Union store, and when I called him out on it he sent me a picture his fake TX drivers license. I told him to call me and he replied that he was deaf. I said i'm not selling him the boat. Then today the check shows up via USPS for $5500 more then the asking price. Here is how the scam works - he said he's sorry but his financier (who the F has a financier and what is a financier) over paid and the $5500 was supposed to go to the shipper. He said to deposit the check and then said to mail the difference to the shipper. I never got to the point of contacting the shipper but I called Landmark Credit Union where the check was from and gave the person the check number and it wasn't from them and a scam. She said they have had a lot of scammed checks.
