    Exclamation Beware - possible scam by jameswross

    Beware - possible scam by jameswross

    We've been advised by member “smgcon” to check the following new member.

    Member jameswross joined 11-29-2021 using email address bradpitt3991@gmail.com

    He only made 1 public post and he's already sent 29 PM's (Private Messages) for different items to other members here, asking them to contact a 3rd party at a different email address, as that person can sell them what they need.

    If you have sent any money, I’d advise you STOP payment if possible.

    I have deleted ALL of his PM's.

    These scammers are getting more sophisticated, so “Caveat Emptor”.

    I've have permanently banned him.

    Thanks for the heads up “smgcon”.

    Regards,
    Doug

    Note: To reduce fraudulent activity, we do not allow re-direction selling on our site, which means using our PM (Private Messaging) system instructing another member to contact third parties at a different email address than the one registered with our site. Only direct sales from our WTS/WTB/WTT classifieds area. Anyone doing this will be immediately banned for life without any recourse.

    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. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    Its not a possible scam, IT IS A REAL SCAM! I got taken for 100$ by a willyvargasonjrb17@gmail.com email address that he forwarded to me. Its been two weeks and no tracking number as promised and no bayo!
    I contacted this email address and got a single sentence response, "I will look into this". I believe the response to be a stalling tactic or just shining me on.

    p.s., I misunderstood "re-direction selling" to be to an outside site like embay or GB. I didnt realize it applied to a private seller. Oh well, live and learn!
