A friend of mine made me aware that about 7 years ago, someone used his name to perpetrate a fraud concerning what would have been 1/2 price on a rifle scope on this site, where the bad guy managed to leverage up to 15 people to buy the same scope (never delivered) by sending money orders to an address not just different from his but was many states away from his own. He still has paperwork from the US Postal Service validating the fraud. Come forward to today and he still gets the occasional call to cough up the paid for scope or (fill in the blanks your way, because almost all threats have been made). Unfortunately my friend is a victim in this as well because many that were taken refuse to believe they lost their money through carelessness. If I were to fall for a purchase with money order, it would be after several telephone calls where the SELLER answered and maybe even speak with his kids. Wrong address, wrong state, and counting on a dunce that did not know what his scope was worth. I would rather send the money to another board member near the advertiser to check out the product and maybe ever pass my money on to him. After hearing this, I am wondering how common this is today. I am sure many could benefit by this update.
