You Can't Be Too Cautious

The other day someone who had been a member here since Dec, 2016 (athena00) with 50+ posts offered a Kimber Ultra CDP 9mm for sale. A new member Wingnut was interested in it and PM'd me about fraud on the forum. I told him I'd take a look at the guy but in reading the bio he had I figured he'd be OK. He lived in Iowa, was retired, liked hunting, fishing, dogs and long range precision shooting. He sounded like about 85% of us but I figured what the hell, dig a little deeper. I ran his IP address and it came up in Nigeria, at first I thought that had to be wrong so I ran it again with a different search engine and again it came up Nigeria. Then I did a search on his email address, Nigeria again and found him banned on a bunch of other forums. Before actually banning him I checked out his posts and 90% of them were greeting new members. These guys are getting smarter all the time, this guy took 10 months to set this thing up. I immediately banned him and thanked Wingnut for PMing me about this deal.

I have no idea of what could have made your laptop go haywire, nothing in his post could have done that. He lied about who and where he was, only by tracing his IP or email address could we see where his posts were originating from.

I don't know what you've got there Marshall but that's not the IP address of the guy that was banned, not even close.

When I ran 104.27.126.62 I found it's for Cloudflare in United States.

No clue either, but that's what came up when I clicked on his thread and called you right after....

Doesn't matter since he's gone, but how many others are out there doing the same thing ?

That's why you should never ever never grow comfortable and chummy with anyone on the internet. However, most people are honest and are whom they say they are. It's that other faction that you have to be concerned with. If you give out info to someone on the internet, you get what you deserve for being stupid! I hate that word stupid but in this case it fits!

Always be aware of your surroundings and who you are dealing with!!!

An Ultra Carry and a Pro Carry for way less than you can find them for. Should have been the first sign of trouble.
