    Outboard Motors Sales - Fact or Fiction

    I came across this site and noticed the price of outboards were extremely low.

    http://www.yamaha-outboardmotor.com/

    The company appears to be in Hong Kong and wondered if anyone has had any dealings or experience with this company.

    If it seems too good to be true it probably is is what hots me here but better to check.

    Thank you for any feedback!

    Yeah I've read about that place-100% a scam they own nothing but some phones and the means to steal from you-AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.

    Any company that claims they've been around since 2005 would have left an internet footprint. Nada. Bolin marine Trade generates nothing

    Chinese scam for sure

    Just read their so called customer reviews. Total bogus made up crap. Learned how to write those from the Nigerian I think.

    I can't believe Yamaha isn't all over this and shuts their site down.

    I don't need a motor - but could use cheap bridge (between VI and the lower mainland).

    Devil's in the details- take a look at the backdrop in the pictures. None of them are in the same area. Especially like the 250hp in the living room.
    Have WOT addon for firefox and it immediately popped up with a warning for the website.Pretty good tool for sussing out the scammers
