Mate, it's not the moderators problem.

No one should buy anything off anybody that has no references, I'd be perfectly happy if anyone ever came on here and asked if anyone had dealt with me.

You sussed the dodgy seller so good on you, you haven't lost anything.

If everyone did the same then the scammers would soon be gone.

if the mods put a post limit on the for sale section.

e.g 50 posts in anything other than for sale section before access could be granted.

Take a read of the ad http://www.thehuntin...2-pcp-for-sale/


HW 100 scope and bag for £400, he didn't even try to run the price up....


And the scope he is advertising is a hawke night eye........ but it's not a night eye IR in the photo he has provided!

A minimum post count of fifty or a hundred means feck all, it takes no time at all to count up fifty "nice one mate"'s or "smart looking dog" or even :notworthy: :wallbash: :victory: :tongue2: :censored: :blink: :icon_eek: .

Its the quality of the post not the content. That should give somebody some credibility or a good reputation.

If something sounds too good to be true it usually is and messers are everywhere, its just a shame they all end up on here.

Credit for spotting him out but if banned he will just join again or the next messer/scammer will fill his boots. Impressive post count or not.

VERMIN1234 also stated in his ad that he would accept paypal,you would not be covered if you paid with paypal and was scammed as paypal wont protect you when paying for firearms,

Hi. As a new member to this forum. I myself may wish to buy and sell the odd gun. I would hapily provide any information requested when selling or buying a gun as to confirm the ligitimacy of the sale/purchase.

Maybe some sort of form could be filled in? Name, address, tel no's. email etc.. but then i suppose you are bordering on data protection and so on...?

I suppose common sense is the name of the game maybe?

Pughy.

i think the only way you are going to redeem yourself is if you meet face to face with the person whom may want to buy your HW and except cash on collection, also supply a home phone number and or a mobile, the problem is, is there have been a number of sellers on here who have just come on to take people for a ride you cannot blame other users for being highly suspicious even more so when your id comes up, so i would sugest if you do indeed have this rifle for sale you take more pictures and include in the pictures maybe a picture of your self holding the rifle and possibly some other means of id maybe a driving licence if you have one, other wise i think you will be stuffed.
