    Exactly! They don't care who that take it from, or how much harm they could cause the person! ex: scammed out of life savings, now can't afford meds....etc. They need to ramp up the tracking of these pieces of shi*

    Just fill his email inbox with pictures of your butthole. Put "Payment attached" in the subject lines.

    one of the best things i have heard in a while, thank you sir! Next Obama supporting Nigerian prince that contacts me is going to get a very special “payment confirmation” attachment!

    The “want to buy” classifieds are where the scammers appear. Extra caution is needed in that sub forum.

    Almost the exact same scam is going on an archery forum I joined recently. Seems like an obvious scam when I received the same style message from three different user names, all suggesting I contact a "buddy," all with different names and different email addresses.

    Have spent the past week jacking w/a scammer that just KNOWS he's got $8k coming his way, as soon as I can get his email address correct. LOL I keep "messing up" his email addy - and the dumbsh** keeps patiently waiting. I've suggested a mailing address - I got a litter box FULL of "payment in kind" waiting! Gonna vacuum seal a non-clear bag full of it an' mail it.....

    I just posted this a few minutes ago on a couple classified threads. I saw this thread and thought it would be appropriate to pass along here for a warning to others.

    "Ok, I've held my peace long enough hoping for a positive resolution that is not going to happen.
    This forum member (Slingerbelt) has recently listed four firearms for sale. I purchased the first one a DW Guardian for $1,100 on 9/10, sent funds 9/11, he received funds 9/14. After excuses for not shipping he notified me Friday 9/18 that shipping was "done". No tracking number. Saturday morning I contact the FFL he had given me. His FFL said he has not received the gun. I've PM'ed him a couple times, no reply.
    AVOID this guy completely!"

    AND the really sucky part is that there was a legit GB dealer sellin' them earlier this summer for like $1030 DELIVERED, so the price was "believable". I know the other deal was legit - I bought two from his GB listings.

    Thanks for giving us the heads up gunz! I suppose we should always be wary, do some research, and then ask our fellow addicts for any info they may have on a seller before we pull the trigger on a deal. These crooked ba$tards are likely to be especially active now in our areas of interest because of all the record arms and ammo buying going on. They will fish for the unwary and use people’s eagerness to buy against them. Thanks again!
