Report Scam in AH Classifieds

I believe I have been scammed by username “blip” . He had been a member since march and I sent him a 50% deposit for a CZ take off stock a week ago with no response so far to PMs for updates .
What was the reason for only sending a deposit? Just curious.
 
I only sent the deposit and said I would send balance when he sent me a copy of paid shipping receipt since he was a newer member.
 
He wanted a screen shot of where I sent payment and confirmed receipt of funds. He messaged me back to ask for my shipping address and when I would like package shipped. Why would he go to all this trouble .

Interesting why someone would scam you out of such a small sum. You’d think he’d go for a larger amount after all that trouble.
 
Let me play the Devil's advocate here for a sec. He stated that he was older, could it be possible that he passed before shipping the rifle?

Also, if he is a scammer and depending on what shit hole of the world, he/she lives, the amount maybe more than what he/she makes in a year.
 
He has private message turned off as well it appears. I was hoping to see if he would reply.

Most scammers seem to always want $1,000 when I've dealt with one. Maybe it's an amount that falls below a certain level of what is monitored heavily for crimes or fund transfers. There are a lot of financial thresholds in place for businesses & individuals here in the US - mainly mandated federally like the Bank Secrecy Act...where my business can't cash a check over $1,000 or general policies for money laundering where I can't sell over $1,000 in gift cards to an individual daily.

No telling, but the 1K seems to be a frequently used amount in my experience.

I remembered the username. He was banned as a scammer last week.

Likely create some confidence so it would take a few extra days to report him. It’s a smart scammer tactic if that’s why he did it.

Not long ago this same poes "blip" offered me some ammunition that I had been searching for but I decided to go another route. I didn't think much about it because it was such a small amount of money. This was the name and address where he/she wanted payment sent.
