Classified ads sketchy inquires  Bottom

  • I feel like the couple ads I’ve placed, all inquiries have been sketchy. Poor grammar and “can you meet me half way at so and so…” type thing, usually hundreds of miles away, without asking any questions about the boat. What’s up with that? I just ignore them but don’t want to miss a serious buyer who might just be a bit weird.

    Selling my Hobie Tiger! And a Nacra 5.5.

    Cheers.

  • Trust your instincts. This forum and the classified are not immune from scammers and spammers.

    You can weed these people out pretty quickly after the second or third email with them.
