Hello,

My name is Sergio, and I\'m emailing you about the 2007 Sea Doo 205 UTOPIA SE 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 Twin 4-Tec 4-stroke 155 HP each and it comes with trailer and all the extras included. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $5,700 as I need to sell the boat before the 24th of July 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,
Sergio


Hi there,

Right now I am at the military base getting ready for Afghanistan. This means that I am doing a special training and I am not allowed to get out of the unit. The boat is already at the shipping company in Topeka KS sealed and ready for the shipping. My presence won\'t be necessary because I prearranged the deal with Amazon. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to test it and inspect it prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don\'t like about it you can send it back at my expense.
If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, i can ask Amazon to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. Amazon will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. If you would like to receive the email from Amazon with all the transaction information please reply with your full name and phone # and they will contact you right away.

Regards

This man posted a boat for sale on Craigslist in Minneapolis. I emailed inquiring on it and got the below reply. Something didn't feel right, so I googled his email address, and found that he had already been flagged on Scamdex for a nearly identical offer on a boat in California, with the same story about needing to sell it fast before he deploys to Afghanistan. I would post the url but I see it has already been removed by Craigslist, so clearly someone else already spotted it as a scam and requested removal.
