Angry boat scam

Please be advised that the website boatsdepot.org is one scam.
Go on the internet and look for boatsdpot.org scam and read the forums.

what makes it a scam?

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

Agree with Cardac Paul. What makes it a scam? Why would you direct us to a site that you claim is a scam on your very first post to Sailnet?

They want to sell you a "bigger" boat for $50,000 US - but all you will get is scammed.

Actually, the site really is a scam. I'm amazed that people will buy a boat, sight unseen, on the internet from strangers at prices well below market (50%) and are then surprised to have been bilked. As the saying goes "You can't cheat an honest man"

Here's a thread of some poor soul who got scammed : Printer friendly copy of thread. This one leads to other threads.
