Default WARNING: Active scammer alert - David Sawyer (Conroe TX)

Well,
it appears that I became a victim of a scam. Who I thought was 'a trusted person' took my money and never delivered on the guns.
goes by: sniperking on shootersforum.com, pinholeshoot on CMP... he opens accounts on multiple sites (and actually builds up somewhat of a presence/history) and attempts to scam...
Going to post information of a scammer here, so no one else will be 'taken' as I have.


David Sawyer
13640 Fm 1314 Rd
Conroe, TX 77302
tel: 5139008549


Mods: if you encountered complaints and/or userids here for him, please IM/PM me his IP address so I can include it in all of my reports (which will include Local/State/Federal) and compare it to the email IP(s) I already have.
Thank you.

Contact the Distinct Attorneys office in his state.
I went through this kind of crap with a company called Rising Sun Engines.
Photocopy all of your documents, find as many people as you can who have been scammed, and follow through.
It took years, but the owner of Rising Sun went to jail, and gets to spend the rest of his life working to pay his victims back.

FTF only. This is the way to avoid these kind of scams.

Maybe, but meeting FTF isnít foolproof. There will always be a few scumbags who make a habit out of screwing people and they have all the time in the world to figure out how they can get away with it. They donít give a sh*t about their reputation and theyíre hard to spot.

At the end of the day commerce relies on dealing in good faith. Itís unfortunate that a few rotten apples make lie thought for everyone else.

he may also be the same scammer that is on or was on gunbrokers and they refused to do anything and so did the cops in tennessee when it involved a black powder rifle. They are showing up more and more and it would not surprise me if they were anti-gun people along with common criminals. The anti gun folks would justify their criminal activity by saying they were stopping more guns from being spread around. those should be prosecuted to the fullest extent. The black powder gun con artist was just a con artist and a liar.

^ here we go with the conspiracy theories and "our team" bs. Can we all agree that this is just another scumbag scammer that you see online far too often. This happens with used cars on CL all the time, nobody blames bicyclists from secretly screwing drivers. Just wished we stopped demonizing people for their point of view.

This SOB just got me sent an $800 money order to a Bonnie Cooper at 108 Elmhurst Dr in Lockport, NY. Found her on Facebook and that is who I will be pressing charges against. Contacted me through nickmcflash@gmail.com. I found Bonnie on Facebook and her mother Judith Goodband who is an accountant. Address is also a trailer park.

Anyone who has been scammed by this group Clyde Vorhees, David Sawyer, Bonnie Cooper, or Kunta Kinta in Nigeria please post PM sent and send me all information you have. I have friends in multiple law enforcement agencies including the IRS, NJSP Cyber Crimes, and ATF who are investigating these scum as a personal favor. The more info I have the more likely Postal Inspectors will take over the case and nail the whole ring. If the ring leadefs are in Nigeria there is the Nigerian EFCC that is now cooperating. Also there is a chance of being reimbursed since the Postmaster General can demand repayment from financial institutions even for money orders that cleared.

3.4.4 Reclamation
The postmaster general has the right to demand refund from the presenting bank of the amount of a paid money order

Below is their typical for sale list

Vortex Razor II 4.5-27x56 EBR-2C MRAD
NightForce 5.5-22x50
Romaina PSL sniper rifle
Russian Dragunov Rifle
HK Mk 23
HK p7m13
HK 416 Upper receiver
Tikka CTR 3x Creedmoor
Springfield TRP Operator with full rail
FN Scar 17 with box and all factory extras
NightForce SHV 5-20x56
HK Mr556 Upper
Benelli M4

Sorry to hear about your bad luck getting fooled by this scummy thief, but isn't that why you should use PayPal, and not use the friends and family option?

At the very least don't send someone money on the honor system unless it's an amount you can afford to lose.

Good luck all. Stay safe.

How is it there is always someone so much smarter than everyone else? How many firearms sellers use paypal? Maybe 10% since it is against paypal policy. How many times did sending a money order go bad previously zero. If you werenít scammed, donít have info, donít want to help stop them....why comment?
