Hello ,
My name is Chloe, and I\'m emailing you about the 2005 Skeeter SX180 I have for sale. The boat is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless exterior/interior condition, no scratches and no dents. It has never been in salt water. It has 265 hours and it comes with a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $ 3,500 as I need to sell the boat before the 31th of May when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan, so I don\'t want it getting old in my backyard.
If you have any other questions, or need more info, please feel free to ask.

Thank you,
Chloe


I sent a second email asking where the boat was to look at. While waiting for a reply I searched other websites to see more pictures of similar boats. Then I found an auction that ended with the same exact picture. That\'s when I realized it was a scam.
