The Nigerian is on Armslist

Saw ad for a new Kimber Raptor Ultra for $750.00 on Armslist, located in Florida which got my attention. Looked at sellers other sales and saw his ad for a rifle but located in Arizona? Both ads were obviously copy and paste jobs, one from Kimber site and a Gunbroker ad. I decided to email him telling him I would take it asking to meet FTF with his making out a bill of sale. His reply:

Hello sorryi will have to ship to you with mover im in CA santa ana and let me know if is ok by me and let me know your mode of payment i have many people bidding for it but if you are ok i can pay for the shipping for you ok.

My reply:
You’re the same Nigerian rag head I had banned
from the Kimber Forum. Now let me get you banned
from here.
And he actually replied back:

what do you mean thought you said you have interest Kimber Stainless Ultra Raptor II (NS) what is Nigereia rag head ?

Be very careful please people, these @#$&” are everywhere trying to steal our money.

I buy from Armslist ALOT::::::: Here's my only advice.......

1. ) ONLY BUY IN PERSON !!!

If the price looks too good to be true, just look to see the date they signed up for their account. If it isn't AT LEAST 1 month old ,,,,,SCAM !!!

I've bought a few guns that had prices WAY under value, and they had just started an account that day, but when I emailed them and agreed to buy it IN PERSON, I got their cell # to call them to make final arrangements. If I told you the gun and price you'd think I was lying. 1 was from a cop right as the station.

I had a person email me on Armslist just yesterday and offered to pay what I was asking and pay the shipping charges along with my ffl fee to send it to him.....He received the big "block email address". I have never nor will ever do business with someone from out of state on Armslist.

I have seen this scam many times. I have looked at gunbroker and found the same ads they cut and pasted from. I flag them when I see them. It is definitely a buyer beware thing just like what was said looks to good to be true it probably is.

Wingnut and we all know it's the same guy. "AT LEAST" 1 month does not matter that much, yes it can be an indicator but this person (Athena, I think was his screen name) had been lying in wait and been a member for 10 months.

Every time I post on a site to sell something, I seem to bring out all of the crooks who think that I'm an idiot and want to scam me. I think it just goes along with the territory.

Wingnut, thanks for blowing this jerks cover again. These clowns will always lurk on the net, and we in the civilized world need to be aware of their crap and stay alert. Alert to the ones here too.

As we all know, when in doubt, a simple phone call will usually indicate if further action is warranted. If/when you get "Jake the Weasel" on the phone, you know it right away.
