This guy tried to scam me also a few days ago. He used to the same email address and email name. He said he had an item I had listed as WTB. I smelled him out right away. He couldnt even get the correct item right. I decided to play with him and ask him for a "proof of life" photo and he ghosted quick.

These days, it's best to not have an email address generlly accessible on the internet. The spiders will give it to the spammers. My email address is in my profile.

Noted. Thanks. Smile




"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

I have a WTB ad on the classified. I was contacted by email by a Ryan Thomas. The email did not sound right and price was low. Went behind the name the email was bricworm@gmail.com. A google search came back to posting on the sig forum listing him as a scammer,

This is a copy of his email:

Hey man,
I came across your WTB ad on Sigforum.
I have a Beretta 92SB Compact Type M 9mm in excellent condition I'm willing to part with.
1989 vintage, extremely accurate like all the 92’s. Less than 150 flawless rounds through it. Perfect, very reliable and has never had any issue. Cosmetic condition is excellent.
It comes with box, 1 8 round mag and papers. I'm looking to clean out my shelf space and fund a new project. $800 shipped to you, let me know if we have a deal.
I've attached pictures.

Almost word for word to the one post earlier. My email was in my profile and not in my ad.

The procedure for dealing with this is clear- ask them to provide you with their forum username, and then you must insist that they post in your WTB ad. The reason you must insist upon their posting in your ad is that they can claim to be some member or other, but they can prove they are in fact that member only by posting in your ad.

Again I say- you must work under the assumption that anyone who contacts you about an ad you have in Classifieds is a crook looking to rip you off, and then you work backwards from there, obtaining proof of their claims by vetting them.

Any doubts or concerns about anyone contacting you about an ad of yours, feel free to contact me at the email address in my profile. Do not hesitate to do so.

If you use your head and follow these suggestions, you'll be fine. If you get greedy and go sending your money to someone who merely claims to have what you are seeking, you might as well just take your cash and set fire to it.

Let me demonstrate the value of using Google specifically to search on email addresses for scammers.

NSFW:

burkeswayne672@gmail.com

https://www.google.com/search?...VzCVYQ_AUoAHoECAEQAA

This asshole thinks we're stupid, because he tried to register just now, using this email address.

I offer to him the same portion of round brown.

It's funny- I don't know what he thinks he'll accomplish. As of 3/22/2022, all new members lack permissions to view profiles and that is not going to change. This asshole keeps registering. I suspect he has dozens of registrations in the forum. What good does it do him? He already has an account from before that date, so he can see profiles for email addresses. All these new registrations- they lack the needed permission to see member emails. Makes no sense.

IP address is a Charter Spectrum account out of Charlotte, NC: https://scamalytics.com/ip/69.132.179.57

These guys, like most crooks, amaze me. If they worked that hard at being legit, they'd no doubt be successful.

Reminds me of the many "sham" artists I met in the Army who actually worked harder to avoid doing work than doing the actual work. I don't get it, must be a pathological thing.

This lowlife, rather-steal-than-work piece of shit is still at it:

shotglock65@gmail.com

scammer shotglock65@gmail.com scammer

Any other gun forums where you're a member, post this email address if the forum admin will allow it.

Anytime someone contacts you with something to sell, gents, just take their email address and do a quick search of it in the forum. I post these addresses so that you guys can see them, but also, I post them so they can be found by you if you search for them, and so that search engine web crawlers will pick them up.

https://www.google.com/search?...tglock65%40gmail.com

Spread this email address far and wide. He'll always been nothing but a fucking thief, but make it a little harder for him to be the scum he is.

And that is what he is- scum

When you search the internet for email addresses, use Google- not Brave, DuckDuckGo or whatever. Use Google.

I posted a WTB in the classifieds and was contacting via email by member: greyworm
spectorarms@gmail.com was the email they used.
Member since November 11 2021.

It didn’t feel right so I started reading their posts and they were way to generic so I passed on the item.

I hope I’m wrong but it feels funny.

I was also contacted by someone claiming to be greyworm. None of their emails sounded legit because they were obviously a scammer.

I told them to send the gun to the FFL and when the FFL verifies the gun they sent me pictures of arrived, I’d then send them the money. I never heard back from them again.


God Bless You and Your House,
