    I always make them send me a picture of their driver's license on the gun, this weeds them out the scammers pretty darn quick. I did have one guy send me a picture of a license that was photoshopped LMAO it was so bad.

    Sorry for your loss brother but I have seen those TIGR scams on there for a long time and unfortunately if you are not buying one for more than $3500, chances are you are being scammed.

    Another method of insuring the transaction actually takes place is see if the guy will let you pay electronically upon arrival to an FFL. The 3 of you can make an agreement together on the phone if the FFL is up for it. This is the safest way to do it but is also the hardest to get cooperation on.

    I feel bad for you bro...I've been scammed a few times before too..You live and you learn. I'd take the others advice and get law enforcement involved.

    I have a few LE friends working on this now...three of them are taking this very personal. I'm pretty sure we found the guy's real info and I'll be speaking to the sheriff tomorrow. He's currently on parole too.

    You my friend are resourceful and I truly hope you get him! I wish there were more positive outcomes from these kinds of scams. Most walk away with a hard learned lesson but hopefully you come out with your money back! Let us know how it goes!

    Yes!!! Really hope you have the satisfaction of seeing him brought to justice. Probably won't put $2800 back in your pocket, but knowing he's doing the perp walk back to the joint = PRICELESS

    But apart from that, its damned sad and I can't imagine there's a one of us who doesn't feel your pain... Don't apologize for whining, you're processing, and two months from now it will hardly matter - put your head there, square up and move on, chin high. You're a wiser man now, not a lesser one.

    ARMSLIST - For Sale: Russian Tiger Dragunov SVD

    In the above it mentions a surgery...he mentioned that during the first email reply back.

    He even mentioned during a phone call he was doing some pipeline work over in Texas.

    Here is the original ad that I used...
    ARMSLIST - For Sale: Russian Tiger Dragunov


    If anyone wants to try contacting him, he went by the name [redacted]....I was making the check out to his wife supposedly. Looking back I was such a moron.
    I hope you nail this guy and get your money back.

    Here's the same auction photos, same price, but the location is listed as North Carolina:

    I hope your friends catch him and he serves some time for mail fraud and grand larceny.
    If he is on parole what is he doing with a weapon anyway?
