Scam WARNING!

Thanks to another LRH member, I became aware of a gun of mine being sold on another site and I did not post it there. Here is the link. Beware! It is a scam! I don't want to see anyone get ripped off.

ARMSLIST - For Sale: Winchester 70 338-06 AI Ackley Improved TRADES?

Maybe the member who discovered this will post and validate my claim.

The same thing happened to me as well on Arms list. I reported the false add and it was erased in a couple of days.

Re: Scam WARNING!

I too experienced someone trying to scam a sale on arms list. I was the buyer and noticed the pictures were the same, but the price was different. Definitely a lot of scammers out there, buyers beware!

Re: Scam WARNING!

Man, this world keeps getting worse and worse......These scammers need to get a life and get a real friggin job and leave those of us who work for our stuff, alone!

Seems like everytime I turn around there's some new scam out there...

That almost makes me not want to list anything on ArmsList, or even inquire about something on there if it's a potential scam...

I am having some fun with this tool, asking him a bunch of dumb questions, making him look up reloading data, etc....I will start trying to work him over on the price pretty soon.
