Default Fraudulent Gun Website? Beware

I had a buyer contact me about transferring a firearm he bought from this website:

I have been an FFL for 9 years and have never heard of it. It says it has been around for 20 years but no phone or address. Only contact through the website.
The buyer sent me the e-mail from the seller and it only accepts Zelle pay to a private e-mail address.

I told the buyer what I thought and would not accept the transfer.

If anyone know otherwise. Please correct me.

Is this the site that will sell off roster handguns to ca buyer? If they have valid FFL and use ca shipping code may be ok.

Domain registration is not very old - odd for a company in business for 20 years. Scam detector website is luke warm. I'd be cautious.

After taking several factors in consideration, our Validator finds that has a medium-low authoritative score of 47.9. This numbers means that the website could be defined by the following three words: Doubtful. Perilous. Alert.

ATF is looking into them....

So, now it is ironic that the State whittles away at the right of its citizens to defend themselves from the possible oppression of their State.
