    I was wrong. the guy I thought was a scammer turned out to be a long timer... I just couldn't access his responses properly. My fault and I lost the deal.

    I got a same scam from weapons guild from a guy called Chad couture. Funny thing is that I could’ve had someone check out the real Chad’s address since I have a friend who lives in the same town.

    As additional context, the scammer was offering a super low price on a TNW Suomi kit and he immediately posted his C&R ffl, drivers license, and LTC. I’m pretty sure the real Chad wouldn’t have a reason to stoop so low so it’s pretty crazy how smart this scammer was, he knows his guns at a superficial level (messed up when I asked him to post the kit but he didn’t include the BATF approved schematics). He’s been hitting up all the files as well so watch out. Usually they can’t do a video or picture with timestamp and something silly next to the product (I’ve asked for a fork on top of a toilet paper roll next to a gun before) and that usually weeds them out.

    I can say the scammers are persistent sometimes. I've had some asking me to send money over an app and to do an FFL. I usually as if they are within the state and usually I get out of state responses first. To be honest, Its rather irritating at the fact that they have the audacity to respond and not meet FTF.

    Absolutely, have fielded these emails since around 2019. Noticed right away the scammer tactics. I can spot them a mile away since I have sold on eBay and Craigslist for decades. They all follow a similar pattern as you show above. I just block their email.
