Subject: Beware of fraudulent buyers
I have my Wayfarer 8478 listed for sale with you and have received many inquiries. Unfortunately, I accepted an offer from a 'buyer' who saw the ad on your website, but it is a fraudulent scam. Meanwhile, I lost out on a couple of serious buyers. My boat is still for sale.
Perhaps other sellers should be warned about this scam. The 'buyer' has a third party send a cheque for a much larger sum of money than the boat is selling for. It appears to be a classic example of the over-billing scam, where I'm expected to send the additional funds to the buyer, who is not really interested in buying the boat at all. I suspected this when I received the cheque and had the bank look into it, and they confirmed that it is indeed a forgery and that they are aware of this fraud occurring, especially targeting boat sales.
Hope nobody gets victimized by this scam.

Wayfarer for sale in Calgary, Alberta
From: C Michael Smith [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
Last on the water in 2009, Estate sale by current owner. Stored safe and dry in attached garage since then. Rigged for racing. Relatively new black anodized Proctor spar. 6:1 open tackle for the jib halyard (basically an open magic box).
Decent trailer much, much newer than the boat, bought new and then used only for 2 or 3 seasons before the boat was stored. A beach dolly is included.
More than one set of sails. One suit of jib,main and spinnaker are still in good racing condition. Older sails serviceable for cruising around but very soft now. Sailbags indicate Holt (presumably the ancient originals), Radauschal (presumably the then current racing sails when the current owner acquired the boat) and Leitch and McBride current racing suit, but sailmakers not as yet verified by actually pulling the sails out of the bags.
Very quick, stiff hull. Foils excellent.
Natural wood finish with clear varnish with no paint anywhere. Maintenance has been exceptional under current ownership as befits a very serious racer. Relatively new canvas cover used only in summer. Stored inside each winter.
Bonus is the original wooden mast and boom come with the boat!
Purchased used out of Ontario by a former Ontario Fireball and Laser 2 racer as a family racing trainer and cruiser for his young family out West.
