    Is anyone receiving emails from people interested in buying something you are selling on boater board, stating something about you having to deal with their credit agents, and wiring extra money back for payment of their purchase?
    I am selling a boat, and 2 different guys have emailed me saying they would like my full information to have their creditors send a cheque for extra money than I am asking for, that I need to wire money back to them, and that their shippers will collect the boat. Sounds weird…….be careful!

    See boater talk for more info on the nigeria bank scam http://www.boatertalk.com

    Be very leary and do not deal with anyone trying to send you overpayment, and asking for refunds of the overage. I had the same issue when I tried selling a boat on kayaknews.ca but avoided it like the plauge.
