We noticed an ad that offered a fantastic price on a boat on Craigslist, Minneapolis. We contacted the seller through e-mail. He responded and said that he was leaving for Afghanistan and had to sell his boat by July 16th. As there were only two photos of the boat, we went to google and put in the boat\'s information, 2005 Crownline 226LS 300 HP Open Bow Boat, and noticed that the pictures were the same as a boat that had already been sold in Phoenix. As we searched further, we found your site with the same info that we had received with the date changed and the location changed. It appears that he is not a legitimite seller.
