Type of a scam Online Purchase
A boat was put on http://www.boatzez.com/k-sea+cat-page-1.html. When I clicked on the boat I was interested in it took me to this website http://boats.oodle.com/detail/1995-sea-cat-sl1-boat/4041950106-columbus-oh/, when you click on this site it takes you to http://columbusoh.global-free-classified-ads.com/listings/1-5-sea-cat-sl1-boat-i…⇄ where you can now click a button to contact the seller. When you do this you enter your email address and later that day that person sends you information on how you can purchase the item you were interested in, which requires to fill out forms ect. I did NOT do any of this because it seemed fishy. Below is what I got via email
