Add on craigslisr for 2001 lind boat with 135 mercury-3100.00. When fewest info\', received email:
Thanks for responding. I\'m emailing you about the lund pro v ifs I have for sale. The boat is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless condition, no dents and no mechanical problems. It has never been in salt water. It has 125 hours and comes with trailer and all the extras included. It has a clear title with no loans or leans on it. The price was reduced to 3100 as I need to sell the boat before the 10th of june when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan.
photos of a new looking boat were linked to the email. Another email directs you to an official looking amazon payment centre with a phone number so you can wire money. The site looks real with guarantee info. The scammers sound foreign. Annette could not answer questions about her military unit and hung up when she figured her scam failed.
