Scammed buying Ammo- Just a heads up
« on: January 20, 2022, 09:48:09 AM »
**Look out for scammers**
This is just a post for awareness, nothing more.
Dreman78 (has since deleted his profile and no where to be found) posted some 6mm Rem reload 95 gr Hornaday. We made a deal for 2 boxes for 120. We made the deal, I paid via Cashapp and he disappeared. He was texting from this number 740-277-1604 and will no longer respond. There is not much I can do to get my money back, It is not a lot of money but I just want to let people know there is scammer amongst us on here. Thieves suck!

Are you sure on the handle? I want to make sure it's banned. They can't delete their profile.

Just seems strange.

PM'd the guy before ever posting?  Can you do that?  Who deleted his profile?

The scammer posted ammo for sale, Kelly pmíed him to buy it.

You donít have to have posts to pm people.

This is why I donít do business on here with low post count members, that and I have a photographic memory for avatars for people who are legit on here just donít post much.🤣

The scammer may still be amongst us, or they at least know who he is. Let me get my ducks in order, because he hit me up with the exact same pm.

Folks....

If you get a pm from a new member or one with zero posts that magically has what you need and they can't meet locally......don't do it! Report the message.

I posted awhile ago about wanting to buy some 6mm Remington ammo. On Jan 7th I seen on my post that a PM was sent. On Jan 8th I received a pm about the ammo, but it wasn't from the same person who said they sent the pm from my post, which kind threw up the first red flag. I messaged him back asking how much he wanted, if they were factory loads, and where he was at. He replied with the info, and said he was from Pittsburgh. Well so am I, so I asked how a "Yinzer" (everyone from W. PA knows what a yinzer is), found this Hunting Washington Forum. His reply was he has a friend in Chehalis who referred him, but he never had small talk about Pittsburgh, so that thew up another flag. Then I noticed he had never posted anything either, so that's the 3rd red flag, so I stopped communicating. Anyways, the original person who told me on my post that a PM was sent is from no other than Chehalis. Either he is the same person as the scammer, has an azzhole friend, or is in on the scam himself. That member is non other than Blacktail_Obsessed_19.

Is it just me or does it seem like a lot of the scammers are from Pennsylvania or Ohio?
