Offers a very nice boat at a very low price. Says it\'s such a great deal because she just wants to get rid of it after her divorce. Says the boat is in Indiana but she now lives locally (in Hampton Roads, VA). Additionally, she will ship for free! Another person noted that she sent the same email to them and they live in Daytona Beach, Florida. Below is the email scam:

Hi,
First of all I want to thank you for your interest in my 2005 DuraCraft Aluminum Bass Boat . I sell it at this price $ 1.800, because I just finished the divorce, and I am very glad that I took the boat, because it was my ex husbands most precious thing.I don\'t ask to much for the boat because I just want to get rid of it ASAP, since the bastard cheated on me in this boat. It is bad memory and I should get rid of it. I have it in Bloomington, Indiana because i live here right now. It has only 64 Hours. The divorce finished 6 months ago and the boat is mine now. After the divorce I was forced to buy a new house.My ex-husband bought it and has only been garage kept. As you can see from the pictures it is in excellent condition. It has many extras including 0 HP Mercury Big Foot 4 Stroke Engine - certified 63.4 Hours - Perfect Condition,Non-Skid Light Painted Surface -Excellent Condition. From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay. I prefer the payment to be done using eBay services (I will receive the payment only after you receive and inspect the boat and only if you agree to buy it). We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at e eBay and I have a purchase protection account ( i hope you saw this then you contacted me ). The last price for this is $1.800, no trades, only cash and only with eBay, because I cannot sell otherwise. I will pay for shipping and handling(the loan of my previous buyer didn\'t get approved and he already paid the shipping costs) so there won\'t be any additional shipping costs).
If you are interested in buying it please email me your FULL NAME and SHIPPING ADDRESS so i can get the ball rolling
I will wait your answer (if you are interested to buy) very soon.
