Another Nigerian Attempt.

Another scammer attempted to cheat someone on our forum. Kik with 16 posts offered an Ultra Carry II for sale for $600.00. I ran his IP and traced him back to Nigeria so I PM'd him asking about the gun. After a little playing around he was banned from the forum.

No I don't check every member of the forum only those that recently joined and offer to sell good guns cheaply. Remember if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

Oh no, I was busy this afternoon and missed the fun, I wanted to mess with him.

Red flags went off in my head this morning when I read that post. The 600 bucks is what did it for me, I thought this guy is really stupid or that pistol is a total wreck.

Atta boy Chuck, Thanks.

I really regret missing the fun. I wanted to tell him 600 was way to low I would send him 900. But I wouldn't get to see his face when he read that, it would have been priceless.

We should run that game with all of them.

It's all too easy to take this great forum for granted. I know from experience, it is TOUGH to keep a GOOD forum running smoothly. It requires time, effort, and it's mostly a thankless job. Not today, though:


Thank You Chuck for making this such an informative, safe and pleasant forum!!!

Just my luck. I want to sell a few knives to cover the cost of two crowns for my wife's cracked molars, and now Chuck is checking out the members.

Yikes, he gets my old police rap sheet and I won't be able to sell a nail-file...
