Default Scammer Alert

Hello folks,

I recently put an add for a 1903a4 clone in the WTB section here.

I was contacted by email from someone claiming to be a poster from the Gunboards forum. This person also sent me a link to his/her feedback. After reading through some of Hikerlt's posts and contact info, I could tell that someone was using his good name to try and scam me. They also sent me pictures of a real 03a4 so I knew something was up.

I contacted Hikerlt through the Gunboard forum and he verified it wasn't him. I played along for a few days until we got a name and address, then finally told the scammer we were on to him/her.

Anyway, be on the look out for people using someone's good name and feedback to try and sell you something. A PM asking if this is really you would work great.

I have done many dealings on here with complete strangers without any issues. I would hate to see someone lose their hard earned money to scum like this person and also try and ruin a good poster's reputation.

Here is Hikerlt's post on this scammer.
