    I was inquiring about a set of Crimson Trace grips for sale here on Glocktalk from a relativly new member and asked for seller references. He responded by indicating he is known as the following (I can forward the email if you want it:

    jkoenig1980
    KosherNRA
    Oldbadge
    newglock22man
    UMGO (not found here)

    Just a quick search has revealed that he is posing as a buyer or shilling on his own for sale ads.

    This is extremely deceptive behavior IMO and I can't imagine that this sort of thing is allowed here?

    I did a search on the address that he provided me and it seems he is who he says he is. He has also recently posted a picture showing his CHL so his identity is not in question but his ethics sure are.

    There seem to be a bunch of new members who's first post is a for sale ad. I can't help but think there are more of these shill accounts or scam artists being made. Is there no way to police this?

    Disregard, it seems like it was an unfortunate choice of words, capialization and punctuation where he said 'im KosherNRA, UMGO, oldbadge or newglock22man' he said he ment IM as in instant message.
