  • Read please. SCAM ALERT

    Hey there

    Iíve messaged a admin of the forum and they ainít bothered getting back to me so just thought Iíll put this out there PLEASE SHARE

    So basically I put up a wanted ad for a kwa usp match gbb. so I got a guy on message me on here under the name of (Jasonxx). Saying can I reach out to a guy in Texas going buy the email name or steven Matthew as he has a kwa usp match for sale.

    So I used my boyfriends email to contact him and heís saying that heís asking for $1,100 dollars for the gun And heís also sent me pictures of the gun that are not his pictures as this used to be my boyfriends gun and there his pictures he took when he posted the gun on the AFUK for sale.

    Iíve also let him know that those picture are not his as Iíve got proof that those pictures were my bfs when he posted it in WhatsApp groups and of course the forum

    PICTURES ARE BELOW , IF A ADMIN MOVES THIS POST PLEASE POST IT UP WHERE EVERYONE CAN SEE THIS. Thanks

    I’ve had the same. I put a wanted add up a few days ago for a VFC HK416 and received a reply from Jasonxx telling me to get in touch with Steven in Texas with the same email you were sent as he was selling one. Obviously I politely declined without even enquiring. Defo sounds dodgy.
    The only stupid question is one that was never asked.

        Hopefully the mods will pick up on it and do what needs to be done. We need to look out for each other, so thanks for highlighting this. I didn’t enquire about the 416 so didn’t get to the point where it started to look like a scam, I just didn’t fancy ordering from some guy in America through a third party.

              OK, I shall say this for the 1000000th time on this forum. Please report this to your local authority (or even theirs), if someone has been scammed it is a legal matter and should be treated as such.

              If I ban this person and they create a new account then what? How will you know it's them? What if that then gives them the anonymity again that allows them to get away with it?

              (IP tracking / Banning isn't an option, we are in the world of dynamic IP and Onion Routing)

              This is a free forum, and you should use it with some common sense, which if this is true, you kinda have.
