Guys,

I've watched the Team page for a few weeks, and eBay, for MC boats... I hate the fact that some a$$hole is trying to rip off somebody, by selling an MC for a rip off price... Tonight, its a 2005 X80 fully loaded boat.... HALF PRICE!!!! What a deal.... This dumm a$$ does not realize that people who know boats know he is a criminal.... I wish we could set this person up, and get him/her in jail... I hate people like this....

I hope this link works...

Different one than before

Thoughts????

Know what you are buying when you spend $$$$!

I think we are some years off from some better security on the internet. Presently the gullible can walk right into a big mess easily.

I've tried to play their game. And then I turned over the contact info to the Ebay authorities. But I never even recieved a response of any kind from Ebay. So even if you do catch the guy, theres a damn good chance he's going to get away with it anyway.

New scam here (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2005-Mastercraft-x80-Twin-Engine-no-baja-malibu-moomba_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ63686QQitemZ4614 595218QQrdZ1). Is there anyone still out there that doesn't know not to contact a seller outside of E-bay, or do people just let greed get the better of good sense?

I may be a little niave - but wouldn't you be entering into a contract with this individual to sell you the boat at that price? IF you could find them, couldn't you sue them?
