Caution must be exercised when buying online. Online risks include:
a) Is the seller real?
b) Does the boat actually exist?
c) Does the boat start?
d) Is it the actual boat represented in photos?
e) Are the photos current?
Buyers of online boats should be aware of the scams that occur while dealing online. The National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) in Dec 2010 warned consumers of the popular Pontoon Boat Scam. "There is a pontoon boat scam that has surfaced on the Internet. The scam consists of a seller advertising a pontoon boat with many accessories for a very low and sometimes unrealistic price. The seller is willing to part with the item for such a low price because he claims he is in the military and will have to deploy immediately. He will accept whatever money he can get quickly and is willing to give the buyer the deal of the lifetime in the process, and he even offers to pay shipping."
Please read more about the scam here – but needless to say the boat is never shipped and the buyer loses his money. (http://www.nw3c.org/pressroom/docs/current/pontoon_scam_nw3c.pdf)
