    That's true but I do use Armslist a lot. But it's local and face to face.

    RaiderANV alerted to me to possible scammer when I was looking for a PH Whitworth a while back. Guy had just what I wanted, NIB . Sent picture. When I asked for a picture of the gun with a dime beside the SN# he was somewhere and gun was elsewhere at Mom's and I smelled a rat, having seen this on big buck air rifles. Bought one from auction site from seller with a record.

    The picture with dime/mail is a great idea!

    I always ask details only a person that has it in their possession would know and also something that requires a picture.
    Like can you lay down a tape so I know the overall length of the barrel and send picture or detail picture of the x side of the rear sight.
    Deal too good or hard is not worth my time.

    Thx to this particular thread I?ve been saved from considerable aggravation!

    Case point - yesterday I was emailed out of the blue by an individual claiming to have a nice Ballard 3 Band...

    When I asked for a pic of the piece with a dime and a nickel in the frame he didn?t understand what I was requesting... After a short explanation, the jack hole never responded back. What a low life, POS.

    Anyhow, I?m extremely appreciative of the great advice, from the many noteworthy and well-meaning individuals who frequent this forum!

    You?re entirely right L3 on all accounts.

    I find myself having conflicting feelings of both disgust and empathy for this sort...

    Rob - I have no empathy whatsoever because they are criminals, plain and simple.
