Since I ranted on here about our boat dilemma, it’s only fair I come on here and update you on our progress. I wrote about that here: https://sknicholls.wordpress.com/2015/01/06/how-florida-boat-scammers-work/
The rocket scientist checks with the bank every day to see if the lien has been paid. Well, today, the lien has been paid.
Don’t know if the guy is totally honest, or whether he was concerned about the threat of legal action. At any rate, he came through.
He’s deprived us of our property and failed to pay since December 7th.
The detective in Lee County assured us we would not be held liable if he wrecked the boat, smuggled drugs, or some other atrocious act, since we reported it to authorities. Thank goodness none of that came to pass, but better safe than sorry.
He still owes us a couple hundred, but we’re not holding our breath. Better to let it go and get the boat out of our name so he can do whatever and we’ll be completely out of the picture.
Now, we can enjoy our new boat without this hanging over us. We tried to have faith, but couldn’t help but feel scammed.
The RS and I feel so much relief! R.E.S.O.L.U.T.I.O.N.
Bye-bye boat!!! The nightmare is over.
Have you ever been scammed?
