    They just don’t give up do they. I’ve been scammed for thousands of dollars in the past. Yes I felt stupid and for a long time wouldn’t tell anybody. I sure could use that thousand of dollars right now. But you learn by mistakes. I’m glad you are exposing these pathetic crooked A holes.

    I got scammed $750.00 couple months ago here on AGN from a New member who deleted himself after I called out the scam  and actually did all my due dilligence with pictures with written phone number and address (physical address checked out doing a search) and phone call to build trust over an hour chatting on the phone talking about life and how he's a really good Christian and all. Couple days worth of talking over the phone he always answered and he even called me too. Probably 3 or 4 maybe 5 hours making a friend. After money paid nothing no answer period. Tracked a landline called several times then busted? Nope just hung up. Tracked a new cell# hey whats up where's my $750 gun? Hung up 2x then never answers.

    I think I did my due diligence and still got scammed $750.00 from a New member here on AGN who deleted his profile after I called him out.

    WATCH YOUR BACKS!!!

    That’s exactly what I experienced with scammers. They always come off as super religious.

    They do this for a living… Rather comfortable one I guess. No need to go out and work…like everyone else has to… That's why they will never stop… Too many new victims haven't learned a hard lessen for themselves yet… Especially the elderly are most vulnerable since they haven't been scammed before like this back in their days… And the newcomers too just waiting to get scammed no experience yet…

    Followup with LUKE I actually bought a $200.00 money order and sent picture of it with Proof of payment dated receipt to him via email and he stated he can't accept that and only Venmo and Cashapp after hounding him for a name and mailing address.

    I'm gonna try and buy $2000.00 worth of money orders next time. I asked if he has high end high $$$ guns that I may be interested if he can accept $2000.00 worth of money orders instead of $200.00 to make it worth his time.

    He is definitely a scammer if he won’t except a money order. Money orders are as good as cash .He wants you to Use the other methods  of payment because that way you don’t know exactly who is getting the money And he doesn’t want to give you a valid address.Yeah just keep messing with his head.  Hopefully one day they will be able to figure a way out to track down these scammers and bust them. You are right though about it is easy for them to sit at a computer and just figure all kinds of different ways to scam people. They’re too lazy to work any kind of a honest job.

    His profile says, "Dallas, TX."  

    How about I go meet him, look at the merchandise, text you pics, pay him cash, and then you and I can settle up.  $200.00.  NO PROBLEM.  I trust you.  Tell him to put up or shut up.

    I don’t know if I will ever buy on the classifieds here but one day if I do decide to, how do you find the scammers list?

    Post a screenshot of that new AGN MEMBER profile.

    Scammers list posted on top beginning of classifieds.

    PM me the member name before buying since I bought from a heck of a lot of members here over the years and other forums and classifieds as well you simply just wouldn't believe it how many people in airgun land I know even from many countries too and can state whether good or bad Deals mostly good though…
