$25K for an almost new X-80..., maybe that's the down payment.

25k is just to buy enough gas for the test ride.

He just wrote me back...

Hello there and thank you for your interest,

The 2005 Mastercraft X-80 is like new, with no scratches,
no marks, no hidden defects.
There are only 60 hours on the boat and engine. It looks great.It is
in excellent condition, I have only used it for a few times and only
in
fresh water.
Unfortunately,I must sell it right away. This is a one owner boat and
it has a clear United States title.
If you are interested in buying it the price is USD $25.000.00.
The boat will be shipped from , Poland (EUROPE) and
I will handle all shipping arrangements and costs.
It will take no more than 12-14 days for the shipping company to
deliver the boat to you.
The transaction will go through eBay for our own protection.
They will hold and insure your money until receipt of the boat in good
conditon.
You will have 15 days from the time you receive the boat to inspect it
and decide if you want to keep it or not.
If you wish to purchase it please provide me your full name and address
so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
After that eBay will contact you with further information and
instructions.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm Regards

David,

Retail on an X-80 in Europe is around 130 - 140k USD (or more)...let me know if he has another one at that price - I would take it just for wake surfing.

Or, maybe we should ask if he can get onto X-Stars in the 15 - 20k price range...

All of these sound the same

"Hello there and thank you for your interest"
who starts out a message like that?

"I have only used it for a few times"
Broken English

"it has a clear United States title"
Maybe clear California Title. And why is it in Poland?

I can't beleive people fall for this crap

Email him back and tell him you would be happy to buy his boat, but you have a cashiers check for 50K. Ask him to cash it and send you back the overage. He'll love that.

Give the guy a break. I have bought 3 boats from David. All came from poland and were in perfect shape when they got here. I also bought an $800,000 house from him for $58,000. It took about a month to ship that from Europe and when it got here there was some water in the garage and a crack in one of the toilet seats. He sent back $8,000 for my troubles.

Sounds like the two Yamaha R1's my buddy bought from London. Only $6,000 for both of them. Too bad they somehow got lost in transit with FedEx...ya...right.....

I got the same exact email from "David" and I had my MasterCraft Dealer look at it. They said don't walk away from the deal, but run!!!!!

Watch out though, they are getting smarter its not just the high end boats they are trying to scam on. That stuff is all over craigslist, i talked to some guy earlier this year who was trying to run a scam for a 98 prostar 190 at $6k. I live in micgigan and he claimed it was in New York, so i said i would come with cash. He said he had a trusted friend who would deliver it for free. It just went on and on from there, where he only asked for half the money because he trusted me. Believe me its all a scam unless you can pick it up for cash.

If some of you actually questioned weather that is a scam or not, you need to smack yourself in the back of the head, and write "I am a moron" on your forehead.
