    Beware - possible scam in process by Source147

    Placed member Source147 temporarily in Moderation Status until further clarification can be obtained from him.

    Another member received a PM from him telling him to contact a 3rd party via email to obtain what he needs.

    The 3rd party sent a stolen picture off a firearms blog of a Reising M50, when all our member wanted was a Stevens 187M rear sight.

    Sounds like a bait and switch scam.

    If any of you have received a PM from Source147 redirecting you to a 3rd party site or email, let me know and be cautious.

    This fraudulent scam stuff seems to be getting worse not just on our boards, but also on other selling sites around the Internet.

    Regards,
    Doug

    I've had no reply from member Source147, so based upon private and public feedback I have moved him to banned status and removed all his posts and PM's.

    Regards,
    Doug
