    I’m selling my guns on the classifieds here and apparently also over on airguns.net, it’s my add but it’s not me. Scammer is going by Cryto Xpress Trader.

    Bummer.  In the future, you could write your screen name on a post it note stuck to the gun where it could not be cropped out.

    JimNM that should be a new rule. Excellent idea.

    That's a great idea Jim. I believe we all need to be proactive in some way when we are selling on any classifieds.

    Not only to protect ourselves but to protect other as well. As an example, the images of the guns that I have already sold could have been pulled and used not only on another website but could also be used at a later date.  

    Caption the note with: Gun (or whatever item) is listed by (screen name)

    I just reported this to the webmaster.  
    There was an old expression in Spain, “ bad grass never dies”.

    Good job guys, I warned them at airguns.net and will keep checking until it’s gone.

    Saw that yesterday on AAC. Today he's (she's) running one for a .25 Crown for $1000. Hope they die from Corona AND Syphilis!

    Another level of safety is to ask the seller to take a picture of the item with a current newspaper (showing the date) or a specifically staged photo with the item and send it to you in a personal account so that you at least know they actually do have the item in their possession.

    (and just in case some of my "friends" pipe in, I will not be taking any pics of me holding the gun in my underwear….) lol.

    If they have an iPhone FaceTime them to see the rifle. Another suggestion.
