    Her buddy Alondra told her she was expecting a letter since she just moved and didn't have any mail yet.
    There's a hundred different ways to pull this off, fake driver's licenses, photoshopped driver's licenses, ad nauseum. CALL THE MAN!:mad:

    I sure am still very sorry this happened to Ken and feel even more terrible it involved me. I’m hoping something positive comes out of this for you Ken. Because it’s a horrible lesson to learn. I remember telling my father about buying guns online.....he said to me “so let me get this straight.....you send a complete stranger money and you hope that person sends you what you bought?” .....”DON’T DO IT!!”....of course I didn’t listen and have bought many things like that. But, there is always a few bad people out there to make you think he might have a point!

    Good luck if you can find the actual perpetrator. If you do you are lucky, and they are amateurs, but sometimes you will get lucky.

    A vast majority of times the perpetrators will play victims against each other; sometimes dozens of victims before the money will reach its final destination, usually to an over seas account.

    To give a recent example, I received a report of an individual who had sold a vehicle on Craig’s list. The subject they sold the vehicle too, stated he was going to send a friend up to get the vehicle, but he sent a check to the sellers to hold until his friend got there, the check came from another party in another state. Sellers contact the bank to verify it is good, and bank clears the check, but no deposit is made.

    Back story on the check:
    The check came from another victim who thought he was buying a camper, set up by the original perpetrator; hence why the check cleared initially when they called the bank. Sender of the check gets wise, and stops payment before check is cashed.

    Now vehicle owners are holding a worthless check, but are none the wiser because the bank cleared it when they first got it.

    Now original perpetrator, states his daughter has cancer, and he is really sorry, but he will have to back out of the vehicle sale. He now requests they send him x amount of money, but they can keep $1000.00 dollars for their trouble. He gives them the name and address of another friend in another state to send the money.

    Vehicle owners send the money and by the time they realize they have been scammed the money is gone.

    Next phase:
    Take the name and address of where the money was sent, run through a search engine, and discover victim number 3.

    I contact victim number 3, and discover a low functioning male in his early thirties, who is under the care of his grandmother. Victim number 3 tells me, yes a check showed up at my house, it was for my fiancé.

    A quick interview reveals, he has not yet met his fiancé, but they are set to get married as soon as she gets there. All he had to do was receive the check from her friend, deposit it into his account, and wire the money to her account in London where she was stuck.

    Clear as mud.

    I’m not trying to put a damper on anything, but there is a good chance law enforcement will just end up chasing their own tails.

    I could be wrong though, it’s happened before; ask my wife.

    I have to be nice to Canukers now, my daughter married one!!:eek::eek::rolleyes: But seriously he is a fine guy and we really like him and they just had a baby girl and he adores her.
    But hockey?? :confused:Sorry Wayne,, it aint me babe!:ROFLMAO::rolleyes:o_O

    About the only thing I like less than hockey is MMA. But wait, its the same thing right?:rolleyes: Like Johnny Carson said years ago, "geez, I went to the fights the other night and a hockey game broke out!". Always wonder why if those clowns like to fight so much, get into the ring with a real boxer and see how you like it! Idiots:D

    Contact your financial institution. The bank, etc should have some way to pull back funds etc. either way, you will need to document that this step was taken when you contact police. Also, contact insurance company as homeowners may protect you

    So it seems the protocol has always been the Buyer pays first and expects the best on the Sellers part.

    I purchased a gun from a member of AH earlier this year, sent the money and the transaction went perfectly.

    That being said, why can’t protocol be changed and let the Sellers trust the Buyers. The Buyer pays for the shipping to his FFL and sends the money once the gun arrives.

    Seems fair to me, the knife cuts both directions.

    Is there a way to lock old classified threads once the deal is done? It would seem there was a mistake made because the purchaser did not realize it was already sold? Maybe a button or similar that the vender could use to lock the thread?

    Bloatedfish contacted me about .375 250 grain A frames. He Sent me a PM saying he had some for sale, but I didn’t need any and told him that, he said OK and I didn’t think anything about it.

    I bought once from the internet. I contacted the local gunshop where the seller lived and arrange to inspect and ship the item for me for a fee (they did it for free). The seller took the item to the gunshop. Once the gunshop confirmed they had the item I paid the seller and all was happy,

    Another forum I frequent moves the entire thread to a separate sub-forum for completed deals. It does help cut down on confusion.

    But obviously makes more work for Admin...so there is a thorn on that rose!
