The 2005 Crest Pontoon is still available. I'm the single owner I have the clear title on my hand. This boat has always been professionally serviced and has no issues.. It is in a good condition, no damages, no problems at the engine. It has an 75 HP 4 Stroke Mercury Outboard gas engine with 223 hours, 22' Feet Length and trailer a perfect family and fishing aluminum pontoon boat.
I'm selling it at this final price $4,000 because my husband died last month (he had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it asap. I also got a new job and moved to another city, and many other things have priority now, so, this boat has to go. If you are interested in buying my boat, feel free to email me at any time.

Hello and thanks for the reply,

I figured a fresh start would do me good, so I packed up and moved to my home town, with my job (I am a military doctor), Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with eBay Motors, so my presence isn't necessary. The deal is handled by them and the boat is stored with all the paperwork in eBay warehouse #21, in Omaha, NE, sealed and ready for delivery. The shipping is offered by eBay to me, so there will be no cost from your side. In addition, you will have 5 days to try out prior to making any purchase and if you find something wrong with, hidden defects or anything else different from what I described you can send it back on my expense, but I assure you that's not going to happen since my boat is in immaculate condition. I want to make it very clear, I won't be receiving a single dollar unless you inspect the boat.

If you are ready to buy it and you have the cash available, please reply with your Full Name , Address and Phone #. Once I got all the details, I will forward them to eBay and they will process my order. After, they'll email you with all the information that you need to complete this deal and also confirm that the transaction is conducted through them and I'm a legitimate seller.

Thanks and I look forward to hear from you.

The scam is the same letters the first one in these frog complaints except she has a 2001 Terry Quantum ax60 travel trailer supposedly located in Bend Oregon and her husband died and is bothering her and she wants to sell it for $2,000.
