    Scammers Name Thread on Rim Fire Central

    From 5-28-20 to the most recent post today 10-25-21 on Rim Fire Central is a thread that includes a number of Scammer names.
    Some that have been reported here like William Owen (william6owen@gmail.com).
    Early on they were contacting WTB listers after only being members for a day or so. Same MO as they started out here by contacting you, telling you to contact someone else who has what your after. Beware.... Like here, these guys are now waiting until they get 20+ posts in, adding no real substance other than 'Looks Nice', 'Sweet', etc.

    This Link is 70+ replies, but worth reading and keeping an eye on. Member Sophia has put in a great effort.

    **Side Note**
    The name Ed Schimmelpetscher seems to pop up often on multiple forums as the one who your referred to contact that has your WTB item.

    Example:

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    What about people whose posts are almost entirely items for sale? Not necessarily a scam or any sort of wrong doing but it does seem that if you're joining a forum mainly to get free adds you're joining the forum for the wrong reasons. I noticed one the other day here who had a terrific number of posts of items for sale but hardly any posts anywhere else on the forum.

    We have to be a bit careful of pointing a finger at those too though... There was a member here that had no posts I'm aware of but sold a long line of bayonets and assorted cocarocka, including ammo. Many were sending up warning flares and I bought an M6 bayonet from him at a very good price. I got it here and was careful to give a good trader rating to try and quell the chatter, which still went on to a point... Yes be careful but if you do enough business long enough...things happen.

    Regards, Jim

    I don't think that anyone minds provided that one doesn't have "an ulterior motive" for doing so.

    Yea,
    But doing so since Mar 2009 says something.
