This is the second time its happened to me. My item for sale in Sailnet''s classified section attracted two scams. They both start out as an email a guy in the Netherlands offering to purchase the gear, later willing to send a cashiers check for 10x the asking price. As our correspondence progresses he brings his very sick wife, God and the need for the surplus funds to be transmitted to quickly via Western Union for her emergency operation to be performed in Nigeria. Don''t they have hospitals in the Netherlands? Needless to say its a derivation on the Nigeria e-scams that have been floating out there in cyberspace since the internet began. Don''t fall for it.
Anyway because Sailnet''s classified doesn''t give psuedo names by sellers and buyers like ebay does, I can''t advise others to use it. I have pulled my classified from Sailnet.
Good luck
