Read this:http://www.dropzone.com/...;;page=unread#unread

The "I'm on a boat and am buying it as a surprise for my Dad (son, brother, whatever)" is a pretty standard scam line. Pretty odd to be buying a harness/container without actually finding out if it fits, no? Pretty odd to be buying a really high performance rig for someone else, no?

Skim through the other scammer reports and you start to see patterns.
This is a standard one.

My first thoughts were pretty unsure if it was a "scam" just kinda confused on the whole situation. He proposed Paypal which is pretty safe, so I was just thinking as long as the money is in my account, I dont really care where the rig goes. sketchy situation clearly so Im just avoiding it

 I received exactly the same e-mail today from a Username: waxzee001 .... the funny thing is, I'm selling a reserve and on my ad it says: "For sale or swap".. on the e-mail he sent to me saying he was buying as a gift to his father, he says: "I'm buying this SWAP to my father" that was enough for me to realise it was a scam... I'm not selling a swap ...LOLLaugh
