        Thanks for the heads-up, Jim.

        If anyone gets any PM's from these guys, let the mods know their User Names and get them banned. There is not much you can do if they are just emailing you. Unfortunately, posting in the Marketplace is just like posting on Craigslist... you are susceptible to the tirekickers, scammers, buyers and losers. All part of the game I suppose!

            Some times you have to be really careful with these guys out there. I was selling some of my jetskis and a guy kept talking to me about it. I told him I needed to think about it and would get back to him in a few days. A few days went by and I contacted him again... It was a different guy now and had no idea what was going on even asking the exact same questions again. Im just saying scammers are putting in more effort now even

              Cam, I did put an email address in my ad. EMMA does not have a screen name here on TEAMTALK. Just wanted folks to be aware of what is out there

              I hope EMMA's photo is on a swimsuit so I can post it!!!

                            I used Craigslist to sell a boat and to buy my Mastercraft. I liked Craigslist but I hated the scammers and I also hated how hard it was to deal with people selling boats over their fear of me being a scammer. I started shopping almost a year on ebay, craigslist, local papers and doing dealer drive bys looking for the boat I wanted at my price. Put up with a lot of strange crap before I got the boat. I still shop on Craigslist but when it comes deal time I am always armed, take a friend, carry only cash, and all the paper work is verified as original and match's the property. Met some good honest people while buying boats and motorcycles on Craigslist but seen the scammers come out of the wood work.
