Jeffersonmosquerar may be online, but he's stuck on the front page of the forum.

He was permabanned.

Common sense would dictate if a member has 0 posts, no marketplace reviews and just joined yesterday, its a scammer. I almost feel stupid saying this. A little bit of homework can save alot of headaches!

Second time I've got this same message from 2 different user names. Other one got banned shortly after.

I got that same message for stock parts I had in the WTB. Whoever it is, they are persistent. Maybe some moms demanding, or lacking action?

haya16buza just pm'd me about my wtb ad....Please, get at me at XXX@XXX.XXX for pictures and details as I have tried to attach pics in here through PM but the page keeps crashing on my phone.
I emailed him, and he sent pics and the same exact story he is sending others.

Easy....merely posting to point out that he had contacted me too, not that you hadn't dealt with him. Sigh

Got another one, folks, so you may be getting PMs in response to your "WTB" threads ( please do not reply by any means ).

In any event, dcgunderson99 has been permabanned


OP, I'm gonna rename this thread so it makes more sense ( we've now seen four of these sumbitches here )

Is it racist of me to think, if a person says

"Get at me at ............."

They are more than likely a scam artist and or a less than desirable.
I.E. Not one of us.

Please disregard my PM, I just saw this and I was one of the individuals contacted by this bastard!

Thanks for quickly disposing of him!

Thankfully I used a disposable email address to contact him. I told him he's been outed, and he's claiming that 6 out of 10 people fell for his scam. Sad...

His modus operandi seems to be "sign up for multiple gun forums with the same username and milk it for as long as it lasts"

So the "6" may not be from our "10".

Or may be a total fabrication told just to make themselves feel good . . .

If a person responds to my WTS ad & asks for pics, etc... will my spam inbox suddenly get filled with porn/dating/porn spams?

What's the angle for the scammer/spammer? Gets a good email address to send junk mail to? Do these scammers have capability to hack/discover names, address, etc?

How do the scams on Armslist work? I could never figure out how the scammer gets paid.

The subject(s) of this thread find a "WTB" thread, and "make an offer too good to refuse" to the prospective buyer.

If the prospect is gullible enough, they'll send a monetary instrument to the scammer, at which point he gets paid.
