    Hey Guys, I have a feeling that there is someone on TGT who might be a Scammer. I found at least 4 ads with different cities and different seller names but they are all the same guy. I am posting my concerns here before someone loses money. He had an ad for a s&w and said he lived in Dallas, another ad for a Colt king Cobra in Jacksonville, Florida and a Colt 380 semi in Seffner, Florida. He offered to ship the gun directly to my house which was an oops! I asked for his telephone number many times and finally got one but it didn't belong to him! I asked him in the emails which I still have why he posts ads that state in lives in different cities. His response was he would getter a better response. Here are the ads that are still running with the Seller names that I found so far. I really hope that no one has lost any money because this guy's story is way too fishy .

    It is highly probable that there are many more ads that we have not found. Someone is going to get taken before he is kicked off this site. He gave me Seffner, Florida as his location and a telephone number that was in Sarasota that didn't belong to him. All I can say is BEWARE!

    I know it is a free Country but think that TGT should be limited for sale gun ads in Texas only, or there could be two sections where out of town ads could be placed and a Texas Only section.

    I responded to an ad for A Kimber that was listed as being in Houston and when I received a reply the Kimber was now in Illinois! There was the same story that the ad was there because they purchased a feature ad. Gunbroker has the same ad with the same Kimber but the location is shown as New Orleans! hmmmm we sure have a lot of absentee Sellers. There has to be a better way to monitor who is placing ads

    I replied to the same ad, no way someone was selling a Eclipse for $600 but if they were, I would not argue with them. Turns out, the gun is in Illinois, and she wanted me to mail her a postal money order, are you f'n kidding me?????? Really???? How about I just send you the title to my truck with it?
