    Yes , thank you ! Our alert members spotted this scam attempt in our classifieds !

    Anyone know the actual GB seller 38husker listing the Lawman MKIII ? Wonder if he's aware that his photos are being used in scam attempts ? Maybe someone with a GB acct will send him an alert message .

    I just sent him a message asking him if he is aware that his ad is being used in that manner.
    See if I get a response.

    I sent the Seller a PM when the listing first appeared and after receiving several pics of the pistol and box, it was very apparent to me that the listing was a scam. Being the good forum brother that he is, Marko65 sent me a PM to be careful since another forum member had been ripped off for $750 responding to a similar WTS ad a few months ago. I followed up with an email to the Seller to let him know he was posting a scam listing and that many others were also "onto him". Have also responded to the forums Administrator who will followup with appropriate action(s). This forum is one big close knit family that's always looking out for one another and I'm grateful to be part of it.

    Are you folks saying that 38husker’s ad for the Lawman is fraudulent? If so, what tipped you off? Oops, I believe I’ve figured it out.

    Seems like the one on GB is legit, the one in the forum classifieds is not. Have had this happening to me as well, somebody ripped the pictures off of my GB auction and reposted them om Guns America.

    As Olle says , 38husker's ad is fine . The problem was here with the scammer "romulus" .

    We've also had photos and descriptions from our store auctions stolen and then reposted in new auction listings .
