Default Possible scammer?

onlineshooter sent me a PM saying he would take a can of my ammo I have for sale. We exchanged mailing address's. He said he would get the funds out on 2/12/18. To date I have not received the funds. Multiple PM's and an email are unanswered. And some "unconfirmed private message receipts". I'm also not able to view his profile or his latest postings and don't see his member name listed on the forum. I was looking for his joined date.

Any input?

I have another buying waiting for the ammo.

Sounds more like a "deadbeat" buyer rather than a scammer, and likely a new member and not given full privileges...yet.
From what I have seen, scammers usually will contact you if you have something that you want and they have something to sell you. Gets your money and then never hear from them again.
Since you haven't got a reply to Emails or PM's then I would sell it to next in line.

I would think one could at the least still see him listed as a member if he can actually PM someone. Oh well.

"deadbeat" buyer rather than a scammer,,,,,,,,,,, probably true. I think I'll move on to the other buyer.

Thanks for the replies.

Get a hold of one of the moderators like Big Red and let them know what happened.

Default Getting registered has become a process...

I know your post was a couple of months ago, but apparently because of serious spamming and questionable accounts, etc, admin has put many hoops up to get registered. It just took me 4 emails to various email addresses over several weeks to finally be able to post.

If your "buyer" was very recently registered, and did not follow up to finally be allowed to post here, perhaps that is why.

If you do not have full access, you should not have the ability to PM.
