Thumbs up Kayak Scam perhaps!!!

I shop on Amazon a lot and I was gonna purchase my very first kayak. It's the "NATIVE SLAYER PROPEL 13". It's a very nice boat and next to the Hobie's. The want $2,599.00 for the copperhead, but then I saw a seller (just launched) that had the same exact kayak for sale for $400.00. The listing said brand new! It said that I had to email them first before I buy it, so I did. I told them I was very interested in buying this kayak, but I asked what was wrong with it. They replied, Nothing at all, it just needed a home. Then "Amazon sent me an invoice to purchase the kayak. I had to get an Amazon gift card for $400.00 and ad it to my account. Now that's exactly how I purchase all my merchandise on Amazon, but there's no shipping costs. Then I put 2 and 2 together and thought to myself after I pay for the kayak, they have no intentions to ship it out. This is a SCAM!!! What are your opinions on this, is it a scam, or is it a great opportunity. Please let me know, THANKS!!!

That sounds like a scam to me, but if you pay for it through amazon don't they have some sort of purchase protection to prevent people from getting ripped off?

Ask where it is it shipped from and offer to pick it up.

We should all be careful. These scammers are getting smarter. They all deserve to be arrested.
