In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash
A Florida man who sold his boat to a man he didn’t know on a promise the buyer would return with his trailer and $1,700 in cash says he was “surprised” to discover his boat for sale on an internet commerce site.
The Manatee County, Fla. man told authorities he agreed to sell his boat, without a trailer, for $2,500 to a man who gave him $800 cash with a promise to pay him the remaining $1,700 later. He has received neither the balance nor his trailer returned.
Instead, the boat seller was shocked when he discovered his boat listed for sale on the popular Internet commerce site, Craigslist, this week.
At last report, neither the boat owner nor law enforcement have any leads on the whereabouts of the missing boat and trailer.
