    I just bought 3 Wilson's from him. He said he needed cash only and he would send directly to my house.
    Sounded legit. :bag:

    Over on TOS he scammed 5 folks on Wilson magazines, brass & some small parts.
    There were folks scammed on 3 other forums as well.
    He apparently tried to pull the same thing on Ruger forum but they banned him before anyone lost any $
    I’m only out $10. but 1 guy lost $250 to him.
    Snipershide has a good thread going on him too
    He uses email [email protected]
    and [email protected]
    From Tyler,TX

    I haven’t reported him, just putting info out for others to be aware.
    Sorry to hear that he got you for $50 @HKaltwasser

    That's really the only reason I took a chance being 50.00, I didn't really see any of the normal red flags from the usual scammer angles. I sent him an invoice because it notifies me when he opens it, well he opened both so I know he didn't just up and die like crossed my mind.

    This guy's luck is running out. He hit AKFiles too.

    I added your info to the thread on TOS. I hope it helps
    I really wanted that Colt Screwdriver that I paid for. I don’t have one & my Goldcup didn’t come with one

    I'm mad to be taken by anyone, but I'm glad it was only $250 over a shotgun I didn't need for a customer

    Yea $250 would pi$$ me off!
    I really wanted that Screwdriver tho. I woulda paid him $25 for it as long as he actually shipped it & I would receive it.

    Yeah I wished my intuition kicked in that saved me from hundreds of scams but I thought scammers usually don't do parts or small items. I was wrong and even my wife said,"that was his angle".

    Oh well, I'll get another, it was for my son's P22. I posted a "heads up' on TGT but someone actually had the nerve to say I was being a drama queen. So much for warning people.
