I love how he added his own fake "buy it now" and "contact seller" buttons at the bottom that redirect you to his email.

Here is his reply to my email, like the way he has it stored in the warehouse of e-bay?:

Dear Sir ,

First I will like to tell you that I am in United Kingdom and the boat is in eBay's custody in US the boat will be shipped from there on my expence .
The boat is like new , in perfect condition . I am selling this boat because the shipping to Europe will cost me to much .I have this boat from my father in law .The Buy it now price is $5,800 . I will sell the boat to the first one that makes a 2,900 $ deposit through eBay .
To be fair with all possible buyers I will sell the boat to the first buyer that will arange the eBay deposit payment . If you are able to make the payment today or tomorrow you will be the next owner of this boat .

Terms,Conditions Shipping and handling:

The shipping address must be provided before sending the deposit payment. The boat will be shipped through JC MOTORS or DAS Shipping Company . The boat will only be sent after receiving the deposit payment. I agreed with eBay to send my boat to its warehouse since I am not in US .
This way, both sides (seller and buyer) are insured by eBay.

Payment:

If you will offer the buy it now price I will suport all the shipping from the warehouse to your address .

For the deposit payment i would like to use eBay as a third party . They will keep your money until you get the boat and will release it to me upon delivery .

Here are my name and address you need for the payment in case you decide to buy the boat :

Raymond Wirth
22 Merton High Street
London SW19 1DN
United Kingdom

The boat is ready for shipment, i just need the payment confirmation from eBay with the transfer's details and the boat will be delivered to your address.
REFUND-After the boat arrives, you have a 7 days period for inspection. If the boat is different than the way i've described it, 100% refund - transfer fees and the boat will be shipped back to the warehouse on my expence. Anyway, i don't think it will be necesary, you'll love this boat from very first moment you'll see it.
Buy with confidence!
I will have pay for an insurance to eBay Square Trade as proof my trustworthiness.
Thanks for the conceded time .
I am looking forward to your reply.

Raymond Wirth

I had another one of this guys Auctions pulled... You know it has to be a scam, but maybe, JUST maybe it is some guy that is about to file for divorce, or some kind of weird situation. Of course, anytime someone wants prepayment before goods are shipped, and the item is over $1K, I stay clear... I was almost scammed by a guy buying my truck on E-Bay a few weeks ago...

No possible way in the world it's true. Giving shipping cost they could take a hit on the boat, ZERO funds for it. He could park it on almost any street corner in north america and find a buyer for 20K in a day.
