Default Scammers Alert

Attempted scam by Sactojim Jim using a wtb in the classified section sent me photos from an online auction. Shitty grasp of the English language was the first clue and the photos sealed it.

I did paypal "send to friend" which is common so the seller doesn't incur costs. That may kill me. Man....shitty people out there. Can this forum get him kicked off??

My purchase was for my school's living history program. So this ****** hole has screwed kids.

I believe they do ban the scammers when they catch them. The problem is that they just change the screen name and they are back in business. This particular ****** hat is Nigerian I believe and this is not the only forum he frequents. Buyer beware!

By using PayPal "friends and family" I think you might be SOL. If and when you contact PayPal be sure not to mention anything firearms related to your complaint. PayPal in the past have froze accounts that involved purchase of firearm associated items. Just a heads-up!
