Yea here is the exact quote I have gotten from 4 people on this board in the last 2 days selling things. Funny how they can all have identical stories. This dude isnt even good at scamming.
I am so happ you emailed back..Been waiting to read from you...I understand your concern about trying to protect yourself. I'm a military man you know the person you are dealing with. I cannot do anything funny, i sworn to protect and serve the country, why would i destroy it just because i want to sell my firearm, The USPS Money order or Check is backed by the government, the bank will have transaction history for it and also you are sending to my mailing address, there is no way i can hide from my identity, if i try to do anything funny...i'll have to deal with the ATF and FBI because of the firearm and post office involved, i can never try to do anything bad, so you have nothing to worry about. Let's just work this on TRUST...Here is the deal,you can send the Check or USPS Money order and your FFL at the post office by Express mail(overnight), so when i receive the mail, i'll ship to your FFL dealer via UPS next day delivery with insurance along with a copy of my DL and i will provide you with the Necessary proof of shipment.. Trust me on this and we will smile at last.Do we have a deal? Please keep in touch.
You can tell by the nature of this email that this is a joke. Whats really sad is that people actually fall for this crap.
