    I was looking for a certain gun and a new member gave me a pm to a fella come to find out it was a scam the guys name is Justin Ryan he wanted me to send the money for the gun then he would ship it to my FFL , by law it has to be shipped from a FFL to an FFL. He refused to do so. So just a heads up won’t list the members name because I’m not for sure if he was involved.

    Have never heard a firearm has to be shipped from a FFL. Show that law. I can ship a gun to anyone with a FFL and I don't hold a license.

    What @1wildcatfan says is the truth. Anyone who can legally own a firearm may ship that firearm. The important part of the equation is the receiver has to be an FFL licensed dealer so they can complete the transfer paperwork.

    Exactly. I tell my users this all of the time. The obvious lack of English is a dead giveaway.
    I like to screw with them on occasion and string them along. Tell them to call and verify payment first or please give me the name and social that matches the account so I can make the money transfer.
    You know how I am on here. I can really infuriate a scammer!

    I've gotten the same when listing firearms here.

    Lack of "American English" or better yet "Kentucky English" is the giveaway.

    I miss wrote it I wanted another FFL dealer so it’s safer on my end from losing money if something goes wrong I can track the problem easier so to speak

    I won’t buy anything unless it’s face to face or I know them. Scammers are like stink bugs.

    I get the same on Instagram scams all the time. It's very fun to string em along! I have gotten some very revealing pictures sent to me during the string!

    I do this with telemarketers on the phone. I pretend to be an old man who’s expecting a call about his social security check and that they’re the ones who can help me. I’ve really had some of them going and even offer to help me get an attorney. I’ll throw in that I’m caring for my disabled wife who has messed herself that I’m trying to clean her up while keeping them on the phone. I’ve had them laughing so hard that they can hardly talk. Then I ask them if they’re making fun of me and my wife. Fun times!!!
