Nice try. You went and deactivated the Georgia ad, and just put up an Illinois ad.

I didn't respond to an ad in Illinois.


How much did you want for the rifle? Can you ship to my FFL or want to meet face to face?

I knew it was a scam to begin with but was trying to rope the guy in. Tired of looking at fake FN listings. :spank:

He just tried to sale me a Les Baer .45. Two different listings. Mailing address in Illinois, listing I'm Florida. Got very defensive when I informed him my FFL wanted the SN prior to shipping.

I found the same exact pics for my Les Bar from a pistol on Colt Forums that sold two years ago. I confronted him on this and he replied that he forgot he bought it from an individual and not Les Bar. So far I'm 3 for 3 on Armslist fraud. I'm done with their site.

This is nothing new. I buy a lot of guitars and stuff too. Same ****. Just once I'd like to beat the **** out of one of these guys.

New guy here. Have a PS90, decided to add a FiveSeven pistol to the family. Found a reasonable ($1,200 incl shipping to my FFL) deal on a used one in North Carolina on Armslist. Agreed to buy, postal MO sent Tuesday USPS Express Mail, but seller is "in hospital can't ship till Saturday". Saturday comes, "still in hospital". More promises, no gun. I mentioned prosecution, she promises to ship next week but I'm not holding my breath. Just notified USPS Inspectors, local PD, ATF, FBI next. Won't make this mistake again.

FYI his/her email is [email protected]. Address was for
Susan McKinney at 599 Dawson St, P.O. Box 381, Grifton, NC 28530. After further questioning, "Susan" said she was "Michael". Said, "I'm a military man so you won't have any problems. You will receive your gun." Not holding my breath.

Great forum, BTW

I am so tired of armslist. I have been trying to sell my AR-50 for a few weeks and there are just as many scammers trying to buy as there are selling. I had no idea it was like that. Luckily between bad grammar, horrific spelling, and continual use of the same hardship circumstances they are pretty easy to spot.

I am tough as nails with Armslist buyers.

Make very clear your price is firm, no offers. Cash only FTF in neutral location. Legal ID. No trades. Must close deal in two days.

Etc.

Ignore the rest of the boneheads.

Would be nice to get rid of these guys. There is some idiot with the same pictures listing a Sig SG551 on there at least 3 times and on gunbroker and so on. Same pics different prices and locations.

Update: spoke with a Lieutenant in Grifton PD today. Very helpful, took a full report. When I gave the name Susan McKinney as the recipient of the Postal Money order, he said, oh you're the second guy to give her name lately. The Chief of Police was working on the other case, and the LT said he'll get back to me after he talks to him.
