Here's an X30 I found listed. Right down the road so I tried calling the number. Kept saying 'voice mailbox full.'

http://www.boattrader.com/listing/2007-Mastercraft-X30-92203509

So I emailed and didn't receive a response - but it was bugging me. Boat with a lift and equipment - with 60 hrs and way cheap....and way close....

So I looked the guy up in the phonebook and called his house. Talked to his son. He told me that his dad has never owned a boat - and that 2 mysterious charges had recently appeared from boat-trader.com and usedboats.com for ads he never placed. The cellphone in the ad was also not his cell number.

Wonder if I'll get a reply to the email. Then I can have some fun.

These scams just never end.
