Initial means of contact Email Boat sell Scam NauticStar Tournament McClain trailer

My good friend lost $25,000 dollars to this scam. See bellow the email sent from this low life piece of crap thief. The boat never arrived either and all contact stopped after they received the wire money. See the email sent to him below:

Thanks, pleasant, to finally be able to reach you directly. The boat is in excellent condition (as you may see in the pictures I have attached). There are no structural or electrical problems. All options are in working order. It has always been stored inside under cover. The boat will come with the cover. The hull has never been dropped or involved in an accident. No mechanical or electrical issues at all. She starts and restarts all day quickly. It was meticulously maintained. There aren't any service indicators or warning lights on. All electronics work properly. It has always been trailered and never left in the water for more than a day or left in a slip. There is nothing negative to report about the boat condition. She is water-ready and stunning. It comes with a great shape trailer. All service records and manuals are available. Pictures speak everything, any questions are welcome. Clean and clear titles for the boat and the trailer also.
The boat can be seen at the local AID warehouse. I selling it through them because I already purchased a 2018 StarCraft Sx 25 R DC and I need to sell this one. This is also the only reason for selling it. (a local dealer, a friend of ours, usually uses this consignment warehouse to sell RVs, and they are awesome for online trading). If you are familiar with the AID consignment warehouse, then you may know what I mean, if not I'll be happy to walk you through it. By the way, Where do you live? Maybe you can take a look at the boat tomorrow?
Thank you in advance!
BTW: Please find the pictures attached above. Pictures speak everything, any questions are welcome.
Thank you

Hello, and thank you for getting back to me. Not sure what's going on with the attachments because I clearly remember attaching them last time. So I think it would be easier to send you my AID (Auto Indeed Depot) inventory. My six digits inventory number is 231182 . Please use the inventory number to access my boat from the following AID website (please check the inventory profile first because there you have all the information about the boat including pictures). The Auto Indeed Depot site is

You can pick up the boat from their warehouse, but you must contact them and arrange a meeting (I suggest the live chat support option). The boat is kept in the Auto Indeed Depot warehouse here in Miami, FL. Not quite sure where you've seen the boat listed because my wife and I took the liberty to advertise on many sites knowing that we have 1000 miles covered. If you live more than 1000 miles away, extra shipping fees will apply ($0.75 per extra mile). In case of delivery, you will be automatically enrolled in the Auto Indeed Depot 7 days money-back return policy. Contact AID for more information.
I have used AID in the past and I can certainly vouch for their services. You can find reviews about them on Google .
Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you
David Hughes

Warning! Watch out. Similar M.O. This guy is apparently running this scam as of May 12, 2022. He claims to be selling his boat using a company called Evolt. That might be a legit company, but "Hughes" has a link in his email that takes you to what I suspect is a fake but very professional-looking Evolt website. It looks good, but if you look carefully, the description of the boat advertised on Craigslist has some significant differences compared to the description of the boat on the (fake?) Evolt site. When I responded by email to the Craigslist ad, I included a phone number and asked the "seller" to phone me at his/her convenience. "David Hughes" emailed back stating that the the Craiglist email did not work and asked me for my actual email address. He wrote this: "My replies were returned by cl.. provide me a valid email so i can contact you." The email address he gave was: [email protected]

So here's one key question: If the Craigslist email did not work, then why did I get his email via Craigslist? Also, like the person who reported the previous "David Hughes" scam on this site, "Hughes" claimed he attached photos to his email but none were attached. That's when he linked me to the supposed Evolt website. I am convinced this is a scam. Do not send any money and, if you live in or near Nashville, TN notify law enforcement about this.
