    Had the same approach with me. Have me this email favorchristain@yahoo.com. No doubt it will continue. Hopefully no one fell victim

    I had a bad experience recently in looking to buy, I put the word out for a set of dieís, a guy garysky02 said he knew someone who had a set for sale. He gave me the guyís email address which I was grateful for. The guys name is Alex Raven, he sent me a photo of the dieís we agreed on $200 including freight. That was the last I hears from him, I have lodged a report with the police this morning for obtaining money by deception. Admin should have vetted this guy but they are clever, the guy garysky02 garysky02 is offline Banned, is now banned but the damage is done. He dealt with a few others on the forum, I hope they didnít get stung like I did.

    I told him to move on and that us shooters are generally harder to fool than the rest of the population.... (hope that works...)

    Anyway, admin, how about we introduce a way of authenticating new members? I have no idea how to do it sorry...
    How about verifiable firearms licence number or some such way connected to their licence - valid member to visit and sight FL ?

    You have to use a little common sense, i will only buy from members that are active on this forum with a good post count.

    Sad to report that I got stung for $200 last week. Both my bank and cops are onto it. It was s.s. Shooter (now banned) who referred me to a vendor. I didn’t twig until vendor who had my $$ claimed there was no one at home to receive the parcel he’d sent and it had been returned to him. Thankfully it wasn’t $200k as experienced by one elderly lady according to bank staff I spoke with. Bit pist with myself as I’ve always trusted people. Hope the crim is still looking over his shoulder.

    Sorry to hear this has happened to you as well, I have received a message from another person who this has happened to on the forum. Be careful who you buy off, it’s easy to say because we want to trust each other but there are some clever ba***ards out there. Hopefully they catch this one.
