Scam sellers and crooks

Post by DavidR on Sat Oct 22, 2016 3:58 pm

Just thought I would caution our members to be very vigilant as to people not known to you offering to sell a item or responding to your want to buy post. Some of the other forums have had several members cheated on fake deals. We just had a scam artist try and get someone to send him 1500.00 for a Rock River 1911 here. Turned out to be a total scam. These crooks are lurking the forums looking for trusting people to cheat. They find a picture on the web of a item and post it as theirs to sell. One thing you can do to see if the deal could be legit is to ask the seller to take a picture of the item laying on a piece of paper and have him write the date or your name or some word phrase on it so you know they are in actual possession of the item. This alone doesn't mean everything is legit but its a good start. Please post any fake deals here if someone try's to scam you.

Caveat emptor and if the deal looks too good to be true, it usually is. Scammers often depend on the greed of potential victims.

I am also highly suspicious when it is the seller's first post or has only posted a few times.  Not all of these are scammers, but it is one more thing to watch out for.
