I found this. Sounds too good to be true ... MedlinePlus Hello , first I want to thank you for your interest in my 2006 Sea Doo RXT 215. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I sell it at this price of $ 1,750 , because I just finished a divorce , and I am very happy that I took the jet ski , because they were my ex husbands most precious thing . Not much to ask him because I just want to get rid of it as soon as possible , I just want to erase a bad memory and that should get rid of it . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus The watercraft is in McAlpin , FL because I live here . It has only 40 hours on it for 3 cars and a trailer included. As you can see from the photos of my Sea Doo RXT 215 jet ski is in perfect condition.The paid , clean title , I have the title in hand . The divorce ended six months ago and the Sea Doo is mine now . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus After the divorce I was forced to buy a new house . From the beginning you have to know that only ask for payment secure payment . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I prefer payment is made through eBay .... services .... ( I will get paid only after you receive and inspect the watercraft and only if you agree to buy ) . I will pay for shipping and handling ( my ex did not receive your loan buyer buy it already paid for shipping) so there will be no additional shipping costs for you . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus If you are interested in buying it , please email me your full name and shipping address so I can get the ball rolling . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I will wait your answer ( if you are interested to buy ) very soon

Sure that "reads " like a scam to me. First, the text is very similar to what originated from Nigeria - not Florida . On the other - she says " former buyer did not receive your loan " , but paid for shipping, so you do not have to. . . That sounds like " tuning " that was not collected in person. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus It may not be a scam , but my bet is . I'm sure it would not send anyone or pay any money . The only way I would try to make this deal would go in person , take the watercraft for control over the execution of the test water , and then give the money in cash ( tax office ) when clear and Accept change of ownership in his name . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus PS . Nigeria by the way , is the source of most Internet scams .
