Craigslist ad for a 2015 SCARAB 195 jet boat for $7,000. NADA Value is $25,000+. I conteacted the phone number and they wanted an email address. After providing the email address, they sent this: "Hello There, Thank you for contacting me about my 2015 Scarab. It has 123 hours and no mechanical problems. The boat is in excellent and immaculate condition. No hidden damage or defects. I have a clear title under my name, free of any liens or loans ( for both boat and trailer ). The price is firm, $7000, including the trailer. I am selling it because my husband died a month ago (he suffered a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories, so I want to sell it as soon as possible. My daughter and I decided to sell the house and we moved with my parents in Wichita, Ks trying to start a new life. Let me know if you are interested in buying it or if you have any questions. P.S. Attached you can find more pictures! Thank you for your interest!"
I replied that I was interested and asked to set up a time to see the boat and for the Hull number.
The second email was "Hi, Thanks for the reply. So our current situation is that my daughter and I decided to go for a fresh start, so we sold the house and moved to my parents in Wichita Kansas. We are trying to start a new life. The boat is here in Wichita Kansas , stored with all the paperwork at the shipping company (Green Shippers) and ready to be delivered to its new owner. I want to use their escrow and transport services as they offer 100% protection and insurance to both buyers and sellers. The best part about this is that you have five days to try it out before making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it, you can send it back at my expense. If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, you can reply with your whole name, address and phone # so I can notify Green Shippers that you are my selected buyer, and they will contact you right away with all the details, with no obligation to buy it. Regards"
