It all started with a phone call from a gentleman who told me that he had just succeeded in an eBay auction for a yacht with a bid of just over £35,000. He had noticed, the morning after his euphoric night, that the same yacht was for sale with Boatshed Gibraltar at £110,000. He was beginning to think that maybe there was something amiss. I thought it interesting that when he wanted to reassure himself that he was not being defrauded he turned to the broker! My first inclination was to let him sink as he was now trying to get a brokerage service but had earlier opted for an auction process that dispensed with the broker. However I reconsidered.
