Scam or flipper

Recommended Posts

@Fman, isn't this your old boat?  There were a couple things that threw me off. Colors of exterior are dead on. I think I recall seeing the picture of the boat on the water at some point on TMC. The bow speakers are RF and I doubt you'd do that after the rest of the exile build, says 40 hours and has 350.  Looks like the smaller pictures my be from your previous ad.

Your missing a link. I saw pics of a VLX for sale on eBay last week and it was @Fman last one. It got pulled before I could post the link.

I think fman has sold his last two boats to the same guy in New Zealand.

That is a special boat with the 5.7 VP sterndrive option listed.

I thought scams were supposed to be priced less than market value, not more?

That is NOT Fman's boat (big pics), his boat is long gone in New Zealand.  

You can tell by the RF cabin speakers and the Malibu branded Rev8's on tower shelves.  

It does look like whoever posted that ad recycled a bunch of Trav's pics

What this person did was click a bunch of options on the NADA site and copy and paste them.  Def a scam!

I actually replied to this AD a couple days ago indicating I was interested in purchasing, I never received a reply back.  Not sure what his motive is because the ad is so scattered with misleading information.  I would have thought I would have got a reply back by now giving me information on how to purchase the boat.  Yes, those are pics from my 2015 22 VLX ad.

Has anyone else replied to this ad to see if they get a response from seller?

I asked how he liked the new Penta Drive setup on the BU but haven't heard back yet.

He just wanted your email address to sell.  Now he has it.... Be afraid... very afraid...

CL  masks your email address as long as you don't explicitly state it.  They typically will ask you to text or email them at another address ... dead giveaway.

I am not sure it's a scam because of the price. 95K is high for a 2015. I have a 2016 loaded I might be selling and would be happy to get 95K.

We'll, seeing as how he chose to use fman's photos, I would say it is a scam regardless of the price.

I emailed and me he replied back. I told him I wanted to bring my mechanic down to look at it. He seemed compliant and told me to text him when I'm ready. Didn't seem like a normal scam. He never asked for money. Offered a 775 phone number which is Reno ish phone number but the ad is for the SF Bay Area.  Not really sure what to think. Maybe he just liked fmans ad and has a similar boat. I dunno?

Here's his reply. I mentioned my mechanic was concerned because the motor in the picture was not the 350 listed in the ad.

Not sure why I can't post pictures anymore. I have been doing it the same way as always and the last few have not worked. Wondering if something changed in photobucket?

From your phone post the direct link, not the image tag.
