    I bought this pistol a few weeks ago and scene I sent the postal money order He disappeared. The phone number I talked to him on is a no answer, will not return emails. If something has gone wrong in his life I understand. I would like an call back.
    If anyone knows him, I could use the help.
    Thanks
    Daniel

    When I originally saw that gun for sale on the forum I noticed that was his one and only post. Slowbird22 shows no state of origin, no friends, nothing. I immediately saw a big red flag. Buyer beware. Good luck with that.

    I seriously doubt anyone here has ever heard of the guy.
    If you sent him a Postal Money Order, contact your Post Office.
    Your seller could easily be breaking bricks in a Federal Pen if he/she gets caught.

    Call the post office and let them do thier job. It's one of the great things about paying taxes. :D

    The IP address is : 69.31.101.104

    The location is Chicago,Il. Another search of the same IP# showed Ca. between LA and Long Beach.

    This is why we have the warning in that forum " Beware of Sellers with less than 50 posts".

    Contact your local Postal Inspector with your money order # and good luck.

    Also, Google slowbird22.

    He is on several gun forums and maybe you should contact them as they may all have some different info on him.

    GOOGLE search slowbird22 he's all over the place. I did NOT click on any links.

    Also always GOOGLE at your own risk, there are more bad link hazards now than bad spam posts...that is a fact!

    Plus FB and Twitter are getting more dangerous.

    Good luck.

    Thanks everyone.

    Sorry to hear about that. I am overly cautious, I wouldn't buy anything from anyone on here or anywhere else unless a contributer or moderator would vouch for them, except for 76highboy I have a good feeling about him.

    Sincerest sympathies for you dhenry. This is certainly not how Id have you come to know TFF. This guys an obvious scammer that slipped thru the cracks. I have been scammed before so I can sincerely relate to your case here. scammers tell you everything you want to hear, earn your trust, then split with your money.

    Where in TX are you Brother?

    Couldnt agree more, and i wouldnt mind seeing a rule implemented in the buy sell trade forum restricting its use to legit TFFers. (i.e. min. post count/contributor/sponsor)

    And i learned from my scamming spring of 2010. Dont buy nuttn you cant hold in your hand first. unless you know personally and completely trust the person youre buying it from.
