This is like that one time I helped out a Nigerian Prince. Come to think of it, I should have that $300K in my bank account soon!

But for real, how would selling a fake boat work? Are they hoping people would wire transfer the full amount to make a purchase sight unseen?

I'd say time to have some fun with the guy. String him along and see how far one can get with him.

I tried emailing on this scam but never got a response. Must be an effective scam.

I actually know a girl who got scammed over craigslist. She didnt know better and sent em half the money and never heard back. Needless to say she learned that lesson

Typical of some of the boats that come from Port Jefferson L.I. Guy there used to have the MC dealership but lost it a few years ago. He flooded the north shore of L.I. With wakeboats, most to very young wealthy boys.

It's back... but $800 - only things of value - tracking fins, ski pole, and maybe grab rails...
