Sorry I've not got back to you. I had to go away for work and didn't really have time to think about this. I'm still keen on the board if you still have it.
Let me know your address and I'll come past and have a look.

Here's her mail to me.
"Unfortunately I've just got called into the office (i get sent countrywide with less than 24hrs notice) so very busy till next week. Back at work we have some shipments for large items with parcelforce all week long. Just thought it would save you time and hassle if I'll send it along with them free of charge company benefits .
I asked around and it seems you can pay cash upon delivery/inspection. It's quite simple since they're able to wait for you to check it out, if not as described they can just void the shipment with no extra charge.
If that's alright with you I'll need a name, address, contact number and also date&time suitable for the delivery.
Working long hours so If you want to pop in and pick it up you'll have to wait till next week or so when hopefully I'll get my head around
Let me know either way.
You can check out Stacey's profile on Google+ here : https://plus.google.com/114767908403752520801
Notice how the profile has now gone. Wonder if she's 'sold' the board then.
I might have to get in touch with her now and play some games
I also saw that dominator on there for £180 and thought it was a bit odd. Especially when the same one was on ebay for double. I guess they just nicked the photo and details of ebay to make the ad more authentic. I see so many surfboards sold that must have been put up by someone with no clue about surfing judging by the nonsense descriptions.

My door is open 24hrs. You've been reported to SEEBASE with your forged IP address and CVD code. Your ISP will block all your access to the internet and expect men in suits from ASP to visit your door. It was a great pleasure doing business with you.One less low-life scammer in the world.
