Since they are hitting the U.S. as well, folks really need to be aware of them.

Hi Guys

I have already contacted Boat Point on this one (at least the scammers have lost their add placement fee).

Interestingly the photo is actually from an Aussie Mac instead of the usual (the photo is one from the guy on the Gold Coast who imports new Macs if I am not mistaken)

David, you would be correct that is the same photo he used in his tradingpost ad about 2 months ago.
