Default I need a little help from my Canadian brothers

Ok so I need a little help here. I found an unbelievable deal on a Jet Ski from someone in Ontario. He claims that he moved there five months ago (I assume from the US) and suposedly he is selling this Jet Ski very very cheap because he is saying there is very high price for registering an imported ski and it is just to much to pay. So is there such a penalty? I'm obviously very skeptical of this deal because it is really to good to be true so I'm trying to find out if his story even checks out. Any info would be greatly appreciated because if this is for real it's the deal of a life time.

do you have a link to this ad?

Because it sounds exactly like a car scam that has been seen on Canadian auto trader sites.
The story goes - "I have a <insert very nice car> for sale. I recently moved to the UK from Canada, and it costs too much to register my car for use on UK roads"

The car is for a ridiculously low price....

There were 5 or 6 of these ads floating around for Porshce Boxsters, Skylines, EVO's etc.....

I'd stay away from this one.

yeah I know it's a scam, I was just holding out hope that there might be something to this. The guy is trying to say he's selling a 2005 See Doo supercharged jet ski one of the 215hp ones that only has 8 hours on it. The price is $2000 and he's saying that will include the shipping. Obviously it's to good to be true, but I was salavating over the thought that there was a .000001% chance it wasn't a scam. I don't have a link to the add, but it was listed at www.craigslist.com
