Every single firearms forum I'm a member of is getting slammed with these oxygen thieves. Adding to it, many people (myself included) have been hacked and our accounts used to post fake ads. Makes it even worse because they are going after members who have long standing accounts and a lot of positive feedback in the classifieds, so it seems legit.
Nowadays I will only do a Zoom/FaceTime/Teams call with someone and have them show me whatever it is that I'm buying or they have to call me and talk directly to me if I'm selling anything of value.
If there was ever a group of people I have no problem wishing asscancer on, it's these turds.
Yep, we had a well known admin and several members accounts get hacked on a Texas Gun forum. One hacked account posted some ammo for sell at a decent price and they had some feedback, an admin chimed in saying the seller was good to go and just bought some ammo from him.
