    please people, if your looking to buy any thing from people please ask for references.
    If I was sending some one 800 bucks on a picture I would ask a lot of questions before I sent the cash.

    Be careful, if it seems to good to be true it may not be.

    Good luck, say you buy something for 300 bucks.
    See how long it takes to get your money back if at all.

    The best thing is to know who your buying from, see it and get reference.
    Like I say, if a brand new member is selling a Glock or a high end colt python for 200 bucks cause the dog got hit by a car and they need the money to stop from getting evicted maybe just maybe it might not be true.
    If it's seems to good to be true maybe it's not!!

    But then again, you never know

    Scammer tried o sell me a Python for $800. Offered it up days after the auction ended. My FFL guy informed me that he was being jacked around with a good phone number. Seller wanted me to overnight payment with USPS Money order. MO's can't be voided or canceled or tracked. Address was a open field. Scammer would only have to wait for the mailman. To good to be true means be very carful.

    That's the thing, how can you say someone stole from me when you send him a money order for 300 bucks.
    You made it out to him, anyway he is gone and your left waiting for something that you'll never get.

    If you send a m.o. Ask the post office what will they do for you if you don't get your stuff??
    Does any one think the post office will do any thing for less then a million?
    Nope!!
    I know I was ripped off for 100 bucks durning the nick mag scam back In 2000
    It was a mo and it did me no good as a lot of others got ripped off to.

    So I had a theft happen on another web site, bought a rifle for a reasonable price. Sent the Postal Money Order. Gun never showed up.
    The guy gave a BS excuse. I imeaditaly called the local PD. I told them I wanted to press charges against this guy. I also called the BATF. No response from them. The local PD went to this guys house an had a talk with him. The police officer called me back and explained that they where giving him three days to make this right, ship the rifle or refund the money. I had a refund with in three days.

    Common myth on the net. Buying a postal mo affords you nothing, zip, nada! Those idiots can barely deliver to the right house and you think theyre gonna investigate you giving money to somebody? Lol

    Count yourself extremely lucky. Fortunately for you the seller was a moron cause the cops were bluffing.
