He sounds like a boat owner to me. $2500 would just about finish mine up!

Brad, I like the way you think.

How about we take him for a nice sail, out to international waters?


Cam/George, sorry to hear about this. If there's anything we can do on this end be sure to let us know.

I participate in the International Catalina 27/270 association's email list. Today we got exactly the same email (different name). Looks like this guy is a sailor look to suck cash from fellow sailors.

Joe McCary,
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

BTW- my mother in law got the same email supposedly from a friend of hers. As she lives in the UK and is not the most street savvy, she was quite concerned. Fortunately she asked us before she wired money. Her friend was just fine and doing well in her home in Edinburgh.

This is the new Nigerian Royalty scam...

Nice to see you again Chris! I hope your family is doing well.

Labatt,
Type "scam the scammers" into Google. Evidently there are a lot of folks who've decided to play with these guys. Some are quite creative.

Yeah - I was hoping to continue the conversation but either he stopped the scam since it was getting stale or they shut down his e-mail address on Yahoo.
