Hi - can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Where are you located; what air guns do you have; are you a member of any clubs?

:)

NO answer to my questions; NO answer to a PM about the same.

Either he is very shy - or something is not right... :?

Plus he is online as I speak - randsch89; please answer some of my questions; please.

Aren't you being a little harsh on the guy? What am I missing here?

Welcome to the forum.

Feel free to engage at your own pace but by way of explanation there was a recent "new member" who came in and was in fact a con artist... so the sensors are on high around here. Nothing personal.

However, we do like hearing as much about you as you are comfortable sharing on the interweb so folks near you or like you can connect.

I hope you enjoy your time here with us.

Some people only visit a form each forum they use, once a day. This is only 1 day after he joined and not yet a FULL day as it is only 7:43AM right now.

Welcome randsch89.

Perhaps I am being a bit too harsh - but he has been PMed 3 times and has read all of them - and has responded to none of my PMs or to my requests here.

I find this highly suspicious and would just warn anyone from doing any business with this brand new member unless you get iron clad guarantees.

If I am wrong about him; I am prepared to apologize...but I really doubt it.

Got this PM this morning; can't vouch for its authenticity - but thought that I should share it with you...

Quote:
Please note: This is a fake account that will only be used this once. I don't really want anyone to know what I did.

Greatness/randsch89

I believe they are the same person. Within 1 minute of creating a new account randsch89 PM'd me about an airgun (that Greatness was PM'ing me as well). He wanted immediate payment through EMT (no paypal, money order, etc).

I strung him along for awhile and managed to get his real IP Address:

197.211.53.1 (Nigeria -- Globacom Ltd) <-- Basically he was using his iPhone

He does seem to have multiple VPNs throughout North America. I've seen at least two (Kansas City and Guelph).

Interestingly, I managed to get his Canadian Banking information (Apparently these scammers aren't immune to being scammed themselves). I'm not sure if there are any funds left in there, but providing it to the authorities may at least help track them down.

Bank of Montreal
Account Number: 03933970870



Hope this helps!


If the Mods think that putting out this info is inappropriate; feel free to delete it.

Otherwise I feel that it is my duty to share it with the members here.
