So I ran across an interesting post on armslist today and decided to email the person to see if its a scam or not. I sent asking if it was a .22LR or .308 since it said both and also said 300 Winmag. Here's the response and ad

Sounds suspicious to me. Too good to be true? Probably...


Edit.... For that price he had better hand deliver it to you!

Total scam the Nigerian Scams are a major on going operation they can not stop them because they are in Nigeria. Alot of times it will be for something your selling they will offer more cash than your asking and then say but you need to ship it to Nigeria I sell on eBay and I get one of those about every month. Those are the most brazen. Others are alot more obscure but always involve sending them money or items in some way. In this case and in many the person on that listing is not a real person you would send the money to one of their monkeys who they are either paying to run the scam or a family member. Then they send the money or item back to Nigeria .. The emails will always have bad spelling and grammar errors. Also alot of the time the fake name is two first names. They have thousands of them doing this in all kinds of places any where they can get Internet. This particular guy is obviously a new recruit thinking he can scam some one on arms list what an idiot. I sell on ebay and Craig's list and I am plagued by these aholes every one and a while ill mess with them change the price or whatever. Unfortunately there's enough stupid asses to make it a lucrative business for them:mad

Sounds like a scam to me. The guy cut and past the guns description so of sounds good but the blocks requiring manual input always have errors...

The grammar in his email response is the proof. Does Armist allow you to report scammers?

Just send him a forged Nigerian money order for 3X the prive and ask him to include the balance, in cash, with the rifle. Nigerian scam the Nigerian scammers.
