    I just realized that you really can never trust anyone. I stumbled across this ad online for the rare Alcort AMF Hiilu for sale in New Brunswick CA. Here is the ad (do not send this guy an email its a scam,) I emailed the guy to get more information. He was very shady, would not send me pictures or give me his phone number. I eventually got him to agree to ship the boat to my house, and when I get the shipping information and conformation I would pay him through paypal.

    Here is the so call email I got from the "shipping company" Armour transport systems

    Obviously there is no tracking number. I call the company and ask them if someone dropped a sail boat off to be delivered to PA. There was no record. I forwarded the conformation email the the company, they didn't recognize the email.

    So I go back to my gmail. Gmail has a cool little feature called "show original" this basically shows the routing information of emails. here is The output from the email.

    If you look through the output you will notice domain name of @fakesend.com
    Do a little google search on fakesend and you will find this http://fakesend.com/

    This guy attempted to basically send me fake confirmation emails through this simple website.
    I am posting this becuase I basicly deal with scammers all the time on ebay/craigslist, I work in the field, i have some experience. This guy was the most convincing scamer I have encountered.

    In conclusion I never would of thought in a million years there would be internet scams from a 70s sail boat. Watch out what you try to buy online
    There are internet hilu scammers....wow
