    Exclamation Where to purchase 1891 Argentine low safety for bolt (SCAM)

    I asked where to purchase a low safety for my 1891 Argentineicon mauser rifle bolt. I was directed to Gene Morgan, genem365@gmail.com by Chris Holliday, holli2580@gmail.com. that Gene has one for sale for $50.00 he would part with. Gene stated that I could send him a m.o. for that amount, but to send it to his wife, Bridgette Barber at 2106 Powder Mist Lane, Katy, Texas. 77449, which i did. That was back in November of 2019. After many e-mails between Gene and Chris and many snail mails to Bridgette, all with no response, I would like to report them all as fraudulent listings and advise to not have any further dealings with these crooks. Jim London.

    Hello Jim.

    We have no current member with the name Chris Holliday or any member with the email address holli2580@gmail.com.

    We have no current member with the name Gene Morgan using the email address genem365@gmail.com, however, there was a member Jubee787 using the same email address genem365@gmail.com who joined on November 16th, 2019 and was BANNED from our site on November 18th, 2019. Reason - Potentially Fraudulent Trading Behavior

    Refer to this thread.

    I think it's possibly another bait and switch scam, plus there seems that some of these folks are working together to cross-sell items by mutually referring to each other's email adresses.

    Note: We do not allow re-direction selling using outside email addresses on our site via PM (Private Message), only direct sales from our WTS/WTB/WTT classifieds area.

    Jim, what was the user name of the member from our site who referred you to a Gene Morgan since we have no member Chris Holliday at email address holli2580@gmail.com?
