Cheap Outboard Motors

Unfortunately, I think this is a scam but I did send them an email inquiring about a new Honda 15hp. They replied promptly and said that a new, in the box with all accessories, engine could be sent to me with 3-day shipping for US$860 including freight. They also claim that the engine comes with a full 2-year factory warranty. They accept PayPal or wire transfers.

Intriguing though it maybe, I'm not willing to gamble $860 but I'd love to hear from someone who has success with this company.

That's a scam site. You can find versions of it for all kinds of equipment. I feel dirty just going to their webpage.

Re: Cheap Outboard Motors

Yes, I also ran across them and another similar site when shopping for a new outboard. It is a scam. The other site was less suspicious because their prices were higher - in the right ballpark, but suspiciously low. A search on the internet found that people have been scammed by them as well.
