I received the exact same email word for word from the same email address following placing my ad on boatsales.com.au less than 24hrs ago. As stated in the original report/tip off, I was also suspicious for the same reasons so searched the email address and found this tip off - thank you very much!! I have copied the text of the email below and it can be seen they are exactly the same word for word.... Thanks for providing this valuable information and making it easily 'searchable'....
