    I have found out in the past 7 1/2 months just how lonely and boring gets around here all day. At least before the last surgery I could vacuum and clean and stuff. Now I can't do anything. I was watching tv the other morning and a commercial with a lot of scantily clad, large busted girls were on there wanting people to call them. They said they would talk about anything. I though for a minute and said out loud "Anything". So I called. You know there wasn't a single girl there that knew anything about guns or hunting or fishing or none of that stuff. It was such a rip-off.

    Isn't this "general Discussion"? I've already taken it up with the fraud Dept, I was contacted by the Citrus County Sheriffs Dept. in Florida and was told this guy has stole ALOT of money from us honest buyers on GB's

    I was recently scammed by someone selling an AR on another gunsite. Fortunatly I guessed something was amiss and cancelled the check, but I did recieve a call from the great Falls police department today saying he had my check and the woman involved had turned several in. It appears she was the victim of trusting someone from Nigeria. So as usual, be wary in your dealings. I would like to comment that in general my dealings with selling and buying on gun sites has not been to good in general. I have had one guy back out of a deal on buying a gun of mine after the auction for no reason, this latest scam event and another guy recently sold the gun I bought on line to someone else (probably for more money) even as my cashiers check was on its way to him, he did the check back. I have not found people to be as up front and as honest as I have on car auction web sites which I frequent. Of course I have had many good experiences also from some great folks in the firearm business.

    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    Or you could call Mr. ********* and Mr. ********* and have them go to the guy's house and kick his *********!

    Or, you could just observe the Posting Guidelines, as most of the rest of us do.

    If this scammer has enough bad feedback, people who pay attention won't buy his stuff.
