Just as an FYI. The user m1guy has not logged into the forum since 4-11-11.

If anyone has sent money to:

Please get in touch with the authorities in Granby Colorado. If you’ve not already sent money please do not. If you’ve sent payment and have not received your item please contact Deputy Machione in Granby CO;

There is an ongoing investigation going on in Granby CO.

Angry M1guy

I spoke to Craig Williams Thursday 4-28-2011 1-(970)-509-0095 and he stated he was in kentucky @ the present but he would be back in Granby Co. next Friday 5-6-2011. I inquired about my E-mails to him and he stated he didn't have internet access in Kentucky.
I have spoke to him 3 times on the phone and he has been polite and professional and he stated he would send me my part. I won't let this rest until I receive my part. I'll never purchase from a 1 post wonder again. $350.00 is too much money to loose. I'll keep everyone up to date and I pray I receive my part and everyone else receives their parts too.

OK0KOK.................

As a warning to others. The seller has very similar ads on many forums so a thread here can be valuable to someone who googles him in an attempt to see his bonafides.

Hi. Thank you for leaving this up. VERY VERY GOOD IDEA! I found this Forum thread with a google search.

Williams got me for $78.00 on GunsAmerica on 3/11/11 for a Luger hold-open Latch. He used the name Gun Parts Unlimited. They have suspended his account.

Using the phone number posted here,970 509-0095 (THANK YOU!!) I spoke with him this AM @ 1135. He gave me the sick relative in Kentucky story and promised to send me my money on Monday. I told him that I am a retired prosecutor which is true and am the wrong guy to steal from. I will contact BATFE, IRS, CO Tax Bureau, and Postal Authorities in Granby if I do not have my money by Thursday. I contacted the Granby Sheriff's Office to speak with Deputy Machione. He was not in but I left contact info for him to call me back.

M1's are cool. I just bought a new one from the CMP, put NM sights on it and am spending way too much money on ammo. Big Fun!

Thank you gentlemen.

Regards,
Doug

We are in the process of discussing new procedures for the classifieds section. If you have any suggestions, please forward them to me and we will take it into consideration.

In the interim, I suggest everyone read this excerpt from the classified rules:

Use this section at your own risk.
There are a lot of scams out there so take precautions in your business ventures. The Civilian Marksmanship Program WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSSES AS A RESULT OF USING THIS SECTION. As a suggestion: sellers should consider using delivery confirmation to avoid conflicts from buyers; saying they never received the products. Buyers, get to know the seller a little before you blindly send cash. If something does not seem right; it probably isn't. If something seems too good to be true; it probably is.

Lastly, don't forget the Buyer/Seller Feedback forum. Be sure to express a good or bad experience with your buyer or seller, and let others know what to expect. Also be sure to check there for a member if you are concerned BEFORE you buy.

He contacted me by telephone on Monday claiming to be in Ashville KY and said he was sending me a refund. If he did I should have it today or or Friday. Will advise further.

I received a partial refund of what he owes me ($45.00 instead of $79.00) on Thursday 5 May. Although he said that he was in Kentucky, the postal money order he sent was issued in Columbus, Ohio and mailed from Columbus, Ohio. He said that he would send me the rest of what he owed, "as soon as I can."

While he claims to be in the gun parts business, I am not in the business of making interest free loans for indefinate periods of time to people I have never met!!
