Scam warning

    Ethics has been a hot topic recently in other threads here so it may be appropriate to warn of another scam involving a model canoe. Roger Young recently informed me of the advertisements at http://www.1classifieds.co.uk/0/pos...wn-Canoe-c1900-039-s-Folk-Art-pound-1000.html and http://annapolisjunction.olx.com/salesmans-sample-old-town-canoe-c1900-s-folk-art-iid-96077110 offering a "Salesmans Sample Old Town Canoe c1900's Folk Art" which appeared recently.

    I purchased this model canoe on eBay in 2010 and it is not for sale. The text and pictures have been lifted from the original eBay advertisement. I have posted a reply to the one in Annapolis Junction and notified the support group for that site. The entire British site appears to be a total scam that is being run by "NEURALINK REALTY, 3201 Robinsons Equitable Tower, ADB Ave., Ortigas Center, Pasig City, 1605, Philippines" so I didn't bother to contact them.

    Caveat emptor,

    Thanks for posting Benson. I hope this gets noticed by everybody, including the scammers. Maybe they'll learn that we have a close network of our own, and won't hesitate to put them out of business. Everyone is invited to leave a warning 'message' on the website where they list. We can at least try to protect the innocents.
