I keep telling you guys. How many times have I said it? You're going to get ripped off.

If you have an ad in Classifieds, do what you need to do with it. Classifieds is going to bed. I am fucking sick of this shit. I am sick of members just walking right into this shit. ENOUGH

I have had it with enabling theft. I told you guys. You have to be extremely careful. How many times have I said it?

Wow. Sorry that happened. Para, makes sense.

What a world. I love those videos of people catching scammers and f'ing with them.

Crap. I hate it's shutting down, been a great option when looking to buy/sell over the years. However, I do understand the extreme hassle factor. Sorry for the aggravation, boss.

That was 100% preventable and amateurish at best. Hate to see the classifieds go on account of one person not doing two minutes worth of due diligence before hitting send.

I've talked myself blue in the face about this shit, to the point of becoming self-conscious about lecturing grown men.

Jefe, I am saddened it came to this, but better we not have the classified than have you waste another second of your valuable time rooting these miserable scamming fucks out.

Very unfortunate, I can understand though.

Part of me says "buyer beware" and while I commend your attempts, I am not sure I would have made them. What with it being grown men and all.

Let me state this as plainly as I can, and I don't give a shit who it offends:

Your GREED is going to get you ripped off. That's what it comes down to: GREED. Does anyone need any clarification?

greed - grēd

noun

An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth.

If it were me, I'd feel like I had to, and since that's not possible, I understand if it goes away.

How about just banning WTB threads? I’ve never been ripped off here.

Not happy to hear this... Frown

Or that a member got ripped off... but when you don't follow common sense rules (putting e-mail in post), it's gonna happen!

Para, I understand your flustration, as you have always protected the classifieds as best you can. One reason it's been a great success for many years. Just sad that it has to come to this...

I'm with JG, its always seems to be the WTB ads...

These incidents of scams are getting out of hand. It is not just the very few incidents here.

these fraud scams seem almost cyclical every 10 to 15 years or so. Ebay, guns America, and forums were rife with it in 2000-2006, then again in 2010 to 14.

With the sale of that auction site related to firearms to ammo.com, they have become rife with scam artists.

I don't know what to say. I check the classifieds every time I come on, but I don't participate much in that forum anymore.

Not because of any lack of interest, it is because my focus for guns, and gun-related gear is much more narrow than it has been in the past.

Well IF I were brand new to this whole internet thing and buying sight unseen from an unknown, and untrackable, entity...

Oh never mind. Sometimes change (closing of the Classifieds) is a good thing.

Confused

That's too bad. I've never had a bad deal here. The folks on the sigforum are great to deal with.

Hope you reconsider. You do a great job of helping people watch out for being ripped off but at the end of the day, that's on them to do their due diligence. There are scammers everywhere. Hope they all burn in Hell.

Sad to hear but probably inevitable.
I had some great interactions with a few members including one FTF transaction with someone near me.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.
