Riveraamunition.com has a regular website selling ammo and etc.

They are a COMPLETE SCAM,
PAID them with ZELLE (through Bank Of America)and there is no getting your money back.
Might as well have wired Money.
A $501.00 up by me.
They also texted me trying to get more money saying they needed another $200. to ship it.

Have alerted BOA

Sent money to [email protected] Phone # is 205-336-2171
BE VERY CAREFULL WITH ZELLE PAYMENTS.

Do not screw up like me.
Please help spread the word about these guys!!

thanks,

Ben Wiley

That is very unfortunate, I am sorry.

you might want to not post your address/phone though. This is a solid forum but it’s not only open to members- anyone can see it.

One comment, the pricing for the ammo seems too good to be true. My sympathy that is the case.

The website shows them at 28 Red Hill Rd, Electric, AL.
Google map it, here's the building there:

Also, glaring lie on their website. Never knew of *any* business in the South that would claim any sort of affiliation with the "Midwest." Southern pride and **** Yankees have something to do with it.

...AND..... evidently the website owner is out of Iceland.....

Seems like every week I run across fraudsters. I greatly approve of this alert - $500+ lost hurts real bad. A common occurrence is for the bad guys to follow up on the 1st attack with a 2nd attack and that happened here. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) appears to be submerged by complaints but worth a try. I smell a "spoofed" physical business site - a legit business displayed that has no relation with the fraud bad guys. Riveraamunition (Rivera Ammunition) is probably not registered with the AL Secretary of State as an incorporated business. Any collected info, like email, address, and other probably sold.
