This was a fraudulent add on Craigslist that I ran across recently in Florida that had almost verbatim what was explained in this article. It was too good of a deal to be true and the boat was stored at an out of state location with a nice sob story added explaining why the sale was urgent.
Thanks for posting it!

I just ran across a female Sgt.Sandra Wells that gave me a story of she needed the money by dec. 10 due to being shipped back to Afghanistan, and her daughter is too little for the boat. Too good to be true...pathetic people.
I am very glad to hear back from you. So as you know from my first e-mail, I am a newly divorcee. I figured a fresh start would do me good, so I packed up and moved to my home town, Omaha Nebraska, with my job, and took the boat with me. The deal is handled by eBay Buyer Protection program so I don't have much to do about it. The boat is in eBay`s custody at their shipping company in a cargo container, ready to be delivered to its hopefully future new owner. With eBay, you get free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2 to 3 days. In addition, you will have 5 days to try out 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. I want to make it very clear, that eBay will hold your money, and I won't be receiving a single dollar unless you call and tell them to release the money to me.If you are ready to buy it, please reply with your whole name, address and phone # so I can notify eBay that you are selected as my buyer, and they will contact you right away.

Just the title makes it look like a scam.
We emailed back and forth as follows:
"Hello, I am very interested in the boat that was posted on CL. Can you give me any more information about it? Where are you located? Like I said, I am very interested. Please feel free to text or email. ###-###-####. Thanks,
I apologize for the delay in replying, the 17 feet fishing boat is still for sale if you want to buy it. My name is Ashley Cooper and now I am the legal owner of the 2003 Bass Tracker Pro Team 175 Anniversary Edition that comes with TrailStar Drive-On Trailer. It has a 25hp engine cover but this is a 40hp engine but the decals will get you into the smaller lakes with 25 HP engine restrictions on them. It also comes with Mercury 40 EL Outboard w/ Aluminum Prop, XP 2000 Fish Finder w/ Surface Temperature by Humminbird, 12 Volt, 43 lb. Thrust, 42" Shaft, Foot Controlled Trolling Motor by MotorGuide and all the accessories. The boat comes exactly as you see in the photos with all the accessories and the price that I have decided to sell it is $1500.The boat has 320 hours, this boat and everything on it runs as it should and have no problems. If you decide to buy it, I want to let you know that you will have 5 days to inspect it once it is delivered to your address. I have all the documents, service records, owner's manuals, clean title and will come with it.
Unfortunately, my husband passed away 3 months ago, and I no longer need it. The boat was never used, since he passed away and it was stored properly. The boat is located in Eolia, Missouri, but the shipping is already paid so you don't need to worry, I had an buyer in your state who couldn't take the loan from his bank after we made arrangements to ship it, and the trucking company won't refund me so I can deliver it to your address if you buy it. If you have any questions about the boat or if you want more photos please feel free to ask.
God bless you,
"Ashley, is there a number I can call you at? This sounds a little strange. You state that it would 've delivered and I would have 5 days to inspect it? Would you deliver before I pay so that I can inspect it and then pay? This sounds very strange. There is no way I would send money without seeing the boat.
