Default SCAM ALERT!!

Hello I am a new member on the board. I put a WTB ad on the market place and had R15comandante sent me a pm telling me to email him at kalashnidude47@mail.com. I emailed him at that address and got an email back from jeffersonmosquerar@gmail.com. He is wanting me to send payment via worldremit.com to a Colombian account. The name he is using is Guido Dante Fortunati. A quick Google search of that name brings up a few scams from as far back as 2004 on ar15.com. You have been warned.

Here is an ad he put on ar15.com back in 04' http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_6_14/179006_.html&page=1

He reached out to me on a WTB ad. His location of "New Port Beach, CA" was all I needed to see this turd for what he was. Don't send money to this POS.

I sent a message to the "contact us" link at the bottom. Hopefully the admin see's this or that message soon before he rips someone.

OP, this is not the correct subforum for your thread ( We have Marketplace rules here - please read them before making any post in the Marketplace )

As noted, the individual you are reporting has been banned for some days now, and this banning was publicly noted in multiple threads on this board.

Sadly, that doesn't connect to anything useful.

Should something like this occur in the future, you should contact me ( the Marketplace moderator ) or another active moderator.
