When I was boat shopping this year I found a great deal on an X-star. Guy had a good story, lots of info on the boat, pictures vs. area matched up, story made sense, etc. Very American name followed by a very foreign accent when I called the guy. Dude wanted to do some Escrow BS, which of course I wasn't going to do. I told him I will see what I can do through my bank, but I'm not using some outside Escrow service. He ended up taking down the listing that evening never to put it up again.
He was one of the better scammers as far as prep went, but he didn't know how to close, lol.
