Default Scammer on M1A

Well after reading SWillis' post, I'm convinced this is a SCAM.

CAUTION ****JIMD*** is a SCAMMER

I was first to reply interested, I rcv'd pics 3 or 4 days later from
Derek Derek dere_ch12@hotmail.com asking where I was located?

I then ask for more info, no reply for another 4 days (as of today)....

and now that I see SWillis post that he was also sent pics.

JimD or Derek Derek, you should be ashamed of yourself!!!!

For those of you more experienced with this type of thing, do you mind forwarding to the correct CMP officials.

Thanks,

Thanks for posting this. He emailed me that he was in Oklahoma and would ship to my FFL. I guess he figured I was far enough away I wouldn't come after him.

E-mails can easily be tracked. Trust me....I learned the hard way. Got ripped for an M1A to the tune of $1500. Slime ball has a court date with me on April 30th in Nashville. Two felonies for the guy. He got screwed b/c I used to live in Nashville and a buddy is friends will several officers in the Nashville PD. Oooops.

The original e-mails tracked to Nashville, but later ones were all over the place. Russia, Nigeria, etc. I didn't know then, but I learned quick.

Hamonje, I hope you get justice, get your money back and lock that dude up for a while. My wife thinks I'm pretty naive, but when I requested the seller call me and didn't hear anything I started wondering.

Thanks Nicky Fingers. I hope so too. Sad part is I have to pay more money for a hotel and a new suit for court. Probably cost me another $1000. I like to look the part and step in there with some class. Anything to impress the judge so I can get a decent sentence for this crook.
