Subject: Beware of fraudulent buyers
I have my Wayfarer 8478 listed for sale with you and have received many inquiries. Unfortunately, I accepted an offer from a 'buyer' who saw the ad on your website, but it is a fraudulent scam. Meanwhile, I lost out on a couple of serious buyers. My boat is still for sale.
Perhaps other sellers should be warned about this scam. The 'buyer' has a third party send a cheque for a much larger sum of money than the boat is selling for. It appears to be a classic example of the over-billing scam, where I'm expected to send the additional funds to the buyer, who is not really interested in buying the boat at all. I suspected this when I received the cheque and had the bank look into it, and they confirmed that it is indeed a forgery and that they are aware of this fraud occuring, especially targeting boat sales.
Hope nobody gets victimized by this scam.
