With the large numbers of scammers infiltrating these sites in an attempt to scam the good members out of their hard earned money it is only prudent to once again remind people to be careful when buying on line.

REMEMBER, BUYER BEWARE, IF THE DEAL SOUNDS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT PROBABLY IS. IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS REPORT IT TO THE MOD TEAM VIA PM

We have members everywhere so is it possible for one of the crew to check out a ''deal'' report back to ''buyer''
as to condition/value etc.....if its a $$$$$$$$ deal,mabe go with seller to post office or whatever when its shipped....... sure we can come up with some kind of a plan...... HATE the rip-offs.........and ya, the police take very little interest in being of much help....... mabe take a box of ''TIMBITS'' for the QUEENS COWBOYS when a report is filed. ..................j.m.h.o.:Maybe::Maybe:

You bet we all Dave each other's back. The reason I am concerned is I did an "investigation" for both Fowl and Goose Pig about 2 shotguns on Firearms Canada. One was a 101 for $400 the other was a Model 42 for $1200. I'll post the sellers handles when I am at the lap top. If the deal sounds to good th be true it probably is. BUYER BEWARE

One of the tools we have is Facetime. I haven't done this yest but if you can't do a face to face deal, I think the next best thing or a degree of protection/confimation could be achieved by using Facetime - provided you both have that option. You can see the person your dealing with and their PAL and Drivers license if. The item can be inspected fairly well and at least you'll feel more confident that there actually is an item.
