I saw this boat listed on Craigslist. It should have been listed for more than four times as much, emailed the poster back asking for more pictures and 1 day later recieved this reply:
My name is Kristin, and I\'m emailing you about the Yamaha AR210 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 100 hours 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 $3,700 as I need to sell the boat before the 31th of July when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan, so I don\'t want it getting old in my backyard.

Thank you,
Kristin

After looking her name up because the price seemed waaay too low, I found this wasn't her first time around trying to scam on Craigslist.
