Money Bookers And Auto Trader
Almost Scammed by Money Bookers, Auto Trader, UK Move, to buy a boat!

Too good to be true, we found a Sea-Doo Boat in the Auto Trader, which you think is good. How could someone post an ad where all could see.

The ad said a 2001 Sea-Doo Boat for $3800.00CND, how wonderful is that? We figured the print was wrong, but decided to get more information about it.

She emailed us back and the price was correct. I have copied some of the emails she sent to us, after reading the other canada-complaints.com here, they are so simpliar. I am so happy I googled money bookers scams, or we would of been out a lot of money that we did not have.

Thank you for reporting scams and help saving us a lot of heart ache. We are crushed that we thought we would be getting a boat, but now are happy we have the money in the bank still.

When we emailed her about knowing there were some scams going on about this ... we didn't recieve another email back... go figure!

1ST EMAIL NOTE LIVING IN UK

Hi,
The boat is in great condition, has been properly maintained, has never been abused in any way. It has a clear title and the price I'm selling it for is $3800, which is including all shippings charges.

I live in Belleville, Ontario but I'm currently working in the UK (London) and I'll be staying here for the next approximately 4 months, anyway I'm using MoneyBookers.com services so I can sell this boat without difficulty. I left it at their warehouse before leaving to the UK. They are supervising the entire process from payment, shipping with a 10-day inspection period, returns (if needed) and refunding.
If you want to purchase it, let me know and I will explain you how MoneyBookers works and how we can move forward.
I am waiting your email.

SECOND EMAIL ASKING IF WE CAN INSPECT BOAT AT IT'S LOCATION

Hi again,
The boat is stored in Montreal at MoneyBookers storage facility. Usually they deliver the products with a 14-day return policy right after the payment is confirmed, for inspection and to pick it up instead of have it delivered you have to schedule an appointment, and it could take up to 25 days until you have it set which is more than I'm willing to wait.

If you want to purchase it, let me explain you how MoneyBookers.com works and how we can proceed:
To start the official transaction I need your full name, delivery address and phone number, I forward it to MoneyBookers and they will notify you with all the instructions (payment, shipping, my account status etc.). One of their agents will be assigned to receive and handle the payment. You have to transfer the funds to their agent as per their email directions and when the payment is complete, you have to send them the transfers information, they verify it, deposit the purchase amount in their trust account and start the shipping process. You will have a 14-day return policy, so you will have the chance to test and inspect the boat before funds are released.

If you decide to keep it, they have the power of attorney so they will transfer the title into your name and release me the funds, if not they will be responsible for the return shipping and you will have a complete refund within 3 days.
Anyway, they will explain you detailed the entire process.
I am waiting your email.
Thanks

ANOTHER EMAIL SAYING MY BROTHER IS IN MONTREAL AND CAN LOOK AT IT AND PAY CASH RIGHT THEN AND BRING IT HOME AS HE IS ON BUSINESS. IT WILL SAVE THE COST OF SHIPPING ON HER END.

Usually MoneyBookers deliver the products with a 14-day return policy right after the payment is confirmed, for inspection and to pick it up instead of have it delivered you have to schedule an appointment, and it could take up to 25 days until you have it set which is more than I'm willing to wait.I want to tell you that I have used Moneybookers and closed many transactions with their help. All you will have to pay is the boat's price. As I have told you before once you've received the boat you'll have 10 days for inspection. If for any reason the boat is not as described you may reject the boat. It will be shipped back at my expenses and you will be fully refunded.

It will come with all the papers you will need, bill of sale signed by me, and with the power of attorney for escrow manager that will accompany the boat to sign all the papers that you need to register it under your name. The shipping process can take up to 2-3 days. The delivery will be made at your house. I'll have the exact schedule once the shipping process has begun.
I am very sorry but in this moment this is the only way! Please contact me back if you are not interested anymore so i can look for someone else.

HOPE THIS HELPS YOU LIKE IT HELPED US!
