I don't know if my attachements will show but I'll try.  Someone is working the for sale list with a scam for buying our boats.  The scam is obvious so I thought you would enjoy a laugh.

Not that they will ever catch most of these idiots, everytime I get one of these e-mails, I just forward it on to the FBI's Internet Fraud Dept.  Maybe one day they will make a public beating of one of these folks to send a message to the rest.

Hunter owners might fall for this, but not Catalina owners who have already exhibited their smarts by buying a Catalina.
 
 For 20K do you think he might expedite the transaction?

Hi Bob, I can't help you on why it won't open.  I know others can.  
 
 Peter, I can't believe people really fall for this stuff.  We get different forms of this at work on e-mail also.  Wish they could get caught but my bet is you'll never track them down.

Bob,
 
 It's interesting that I couldn't open the link on my new windows XP PC, but it opened just fine on my old Windows '98 machine.  Go figure...
