So I was browsing through Encuentra24.com, a popular website for selling stuff in Central America
and came across this ad for a 1997 Island Packet
for $15K. Boats | 1997 Island Packet - Costa Rica
I know that if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Still I was tempted to contact the seller, even knowing it seemed like it had to be a scam. The only way that boat would be worth only $15000 would be if it was sunk at the dock
. Then I did some searching on the internet
and came up with this listing on Ebay
for the exact same boat for $167500.
Even the photos are the same...
