    Scammer ALERT!!

    I was contacted by PM by jubee787 sending a email in the pm for a magazine that I am looking for. Here is the information;

    "Check out Holliday in PA via holli2580 @gmail.com,he has a Swissicon Model 1893 Carbine Magazine he wants to part with."

    I sent a email and received this reply;
    Holliday Christopher
    holli2580@gmail.com

    "Heres it
    Kindly confirm if this is what youre looking for and text me on 5413578718"



    Did a Google check on the number and it comes back to a few forums reporting of a scammer, Just wanted to make you guys aware.

    Doug, I got one as well saying;

    " You have received a new private message at Military Surplus Collectors Forums from jubee787, entitled "Redfield 75HW rear sight for a Winchester 75 target rifle".
    ***************
    Check out Holliday in PA via holli2580 @gmail.com, he has a Redfield 75HW rear sight for a Winchester 75 target rifle he wants to part with."

    I got a message back from Holliday Christopher that said "sorry, Not available"

    My guess is that if someone posts a wanted ad, no matter what it is you are told to contact "Holliday in PA" so that he can get business.

    I had posted an add on the exchange form a while back and was contacted by Jubee787 as well via a pm a couple of days ago.

    I copied his response from the PM he sent me so here it is...........

    P14 stocks complete
    Check out Holliday in PA via holli2580 @gmail.com,he has a complete P14 stocks he wants to part with.

    I contacted him back via a email and he replied back saying that he had sold out the day before I contacted him.

    I'm not used to this sort of thing but he he is indeed a scam artist why would he not have sent me bogus pictures etc and got me to wire him money????

    I'm a bit confused but happy to be aware if indeed this is a scam!!!

    Cheers

    I had a PM on here with the exact same thing saying to contact holliday regarding a No32 scope tin.

    When I spoke with him his email replies were like he couldnt speak english properly?

    I decided not to deal with him, glad I didn't!!

    He did send me a picture of the magazine and when I asked him for additional pictures of every side of the magazine as well as a paper with todays date along with the magazine all I received was "Ok" haven't heard a word since, the guy is a scammer for sure.

    I've had no reply from member jubee787 or holli2580@gmail.com, so based upon feedback here I have moved him to banned status and removed all his posts.
