    Scammers

    Be very carful of scammers , they are everywhere at the moment. Be shrewed when purchasing.
    Ask for real time photos.
    and check the telephone number on the internet in a search.
    Also pay via PAYPAL where you can, because you can get your money back via PAYPAL its secured.
    On this website all classifieds will be Vetted and cleared as legitimate. I bought a gun on UNIVERSAL USED GUNS AND WAS scammed. so be careful with that site as it is unsafe.

    You are really lucky, because in most cases such money is not refundable. It's great that the police have uncovered a large fraudulent group!

    I would like to clarify, with your permission. The license was real, but the company name did not match the license? Or was it?

    You really need to talk top the seller and ask for two or more forms of ID. and if you are not sure pay them once the gun is at the dealers shop. and ask who they are using for the transfer. othen they dont know the dealers names in there area thats a give away.
