I Think I Have Been Coned, Buyers Please Be Aware

Recommended Posts

Guys I think I might have been coned, I saw a s410 on sale for 250 on GunStar yesterday and I contactef the seller and was told he has no PayPal account. I first asked his address and pretend that I would actually be able to meet him f to f and was given his address. He sounded honest so I offered to pay buy bank transfer. After I transferred the money to his bsbk account he did acknowledged that he received it and would post first thing next day.

Then the nightmare start, I asked my wife to text him and pretend she is interested in the s410 and was told still available. This immediately raised alarm. I questioned him about it and he said he has two of these, and he promised to senf me photos of the guns placed side by sude after he finish work. And I never heard back from him. Called many times no answer.

I contacted the bank and they cant help me... Looks like I have been coned this time...links to the ad is here:

Do I have any chance of getting my money back?

Do a Google search of his name and address pal, most times it'll tell you who lives there..

Google name and address and phone number doesn't really show me anything. Just got a message back from him saying he is in pub and will send photos tomorrow, still won't pick up phone call. In this morning, He said he arranged currier to come on Saturday morning. Guess I should wait then? Or is he trying to buy himself sometime? Does it matter if I report to police now or later next week?

Personally I'd Ring the police and ask their advise. If they feel the need to pursue it then let them. It does sound dodgy but could be legit like I said the pic shows 4 mags and only 2 offered in sale so their is reason to believe he has a second air arms pcp?

All the best mate

Yes that's the name used for bank transfer but I don't think name matters as long as you provide correct account number and sort code

      Frodo is a 3 year old much loved staff/terrier.. He has bounds of energy, in fact too much energy and is getting too boisterous for our much older staff.

      He was brought in to our home by error as a pup and we just cant give him the time/attention he needs because of work commitments.

      would ideally suit a more active life than what we can provide for him..A great guard dog because of his alertness..
      Not worked but he is game when out walking in the fields

      Clean,strong, chipped, friendly, home/farm/working dog.
