This user "ChristianChris" sent me a message to reach out to his old man at "knaedsfrank@gmail.com" who has the gun I was looking for.
His IP has been linked to multiple other usernames/emails that are all new in the last few months and involved in suspicious random boards which can be found here:

I have. I was looking for a S&W Model 66 Combat Magnum. Any dash through current with snub barrel. Another member here saw it and asked if I was interested in his 66-2. I was. We made a deal and met, and it's now mine. It was actually a 66-1 so even better. This was in June.

Beware of seller Helmut, has 25 positive ratings. Sent payment for G34 upper on 11/15, have received nothing but excuses and now has been over 3 weeks! Below is the last excuse I received from him and has been radio silent for a week!


I just was able to get back on. It’s a been a hectic week. I have to sign up for a PayPal account since my wife is being uncooperative and not letting me refund you the $300.

I should have it all set up by the end of the weekend.

He’s posing as a police officer by the name of Chris Goode, a Wasatch Utah SWAT Team officer. He has pictures of officer Goode’s badge, DL, and officer Goode himself. Anyone that has any information about the suspect please contact Officer Keel via email rkeel@heberut.gov

I had recently posted a WTB ad for a s&w 500 and a member by the handle James32 happens to have one for sale for $800.
He said he would transfer it from his FFL in San Francisco to mines in the OC. He asked for half deposit via Zelle first. He didn’t want to use the PM but text instead. His number is 424-426-3192

Are the moderators able to check for and ban (IP ban) people using multiple user names associated with the same IP address and past scams/suspicious activity? Have a guy in my PM’s about my WTB post that is super suspicious.

Report him via the red triangle in the pm. I had a similar experience with him, wanted to text, when I reached out he offered to ship a off roster gun at a price way too cheap.

I did make note of him in the cgn contributor forum when I contributed a year or so back, seems no action has been taken.

This is text between me and him after I contacted Helmut regarding couple items he had for sale. The same I posted on cgn forum.

What's your offer for it?

I wonder who's picture he used that he sent me

Damndaniel forsure. Dude went to “get his wallet” from his car and bailed during a ppt that I drove an hour for. He kept asking if I was a cop or something so I think he got nervous. Also he has two different 909 numbers, both 909-586 and 909-231-xxxx

Damndaniel strikes again. Been in contact with this dude for a couple weeks now on that 909-231-xxxx number. Came to agreed upon price and the night before meetup when I contact to confirm we're still on he tells me he doesn't have the money and he tries to restart entire negotiations process. Guy wasted a bunch of my time and had me send him a bunch of photos only to pull out last minute. Also was going to drive about an hour to his FFL because they are "super fast" and it was convenient for him. Waste of time.

Here's another one for screen name "Damndaniel."

He PM'd me Saturday, January 7th, to discuss the Staccato P that I have for sale. Had conversations with him via text to negotiate, and we finally agreed to terms on Sunday, January 8th. I called him the next day to discuss details and a place to meet up.

The name tied to phone number 909-231-7540 is Richard Luna, according to my caller ID. He also said his name is Richard. I spent time providing detailed pictures of the handgun to him, and he said that he would be driving up from Fontana, CA to meet with me on Saturday, January 14th. He last responded to me on Monday, January 11th, so it seems like he has ghosted me at this point. I’ve turned down other offers on the Staccato because of his commitment. What a waste of time and effort!

After seeing some of the other complaints lodged here against him, I guess I’ll cancel my appointment at On Target tomorrow!

Encountered the same person:

Other name: Tecalev327 (Joe Mark, gmail: joe325222@gmail.com)

I posted a WTB and Tecalev newly registered after I posted the WTB. I was already suspicious.

Joe Mark: Hi,I have this for sale at inexpensive and cheap price.
You can reach out to me on the email address below for pics and more info
Joe325222@gmail.com (send from iPhone)

Me: You said you potentially have the above mentioned revolver available. Can you provide some pictures and additional info.

Joe Mark: I can have it shipped to your ffl or door and can possibly meet up if you pay for my gas fee.

He showed me a picture of the gun I wanted, but I searched it online and found it was from an article in GunsAmerica about the gun written in 2015.

Me: Where do you live? I can just drive to your town to a FFL dealer and do the transaction there.

Joe Mark: I work away from home and mostly not at home that’s why am asking to drive to you at my convenience.

Me: Sounds like a scam. This is a no go.

Never heard from him again.

I recently had the SAME EXACT thing happen. Same phone number.. except the user name is M. LABELLA

I also post a WTB ad for a 454 casull and he had one for $800 as well... he only wanted to communicate via text 424-426-3192 said he was in Riverside and would gladly ship the firearm to my FFL.. after telling him my FFL does not accept shipping he said it would be shipped to my house. I told him that I only would meet him in person at his FFL and he stopped all communication.

Serious buyers beware of cjohnson1 (559)284-0167. Guy has a staccato cs for sale. Made a deal with me last week to buy. He Flaked on date of deal and now he’s saying he needs a couple weeks to sell, raised the price on me and has multiple listing for same pistol. Each with a higher price. I guess not much more to expect from a newbie with no reviews. Sounded too good to be true. He wont even send images of firearm so who knows if he even has it and if he does he needs to list on gun broker or ebay.

Just had a similar experience with M LABELLA, he sent me a message from him about a WTB I posted for a CZ scorpion, he messaged me and since the site is slow I asked him to text me with photos. He sends a message asking me to text him instead. I sent him a text about the scorpion and instead of replying like most people would he says “hey how are you” so I googled his number and saw this post. I told him to pound sand

PM states: "Hi there, my old man has it for sale, reach him at frankaem418@gmail.com for details and condition
Thanks"

This member contacted me today via PM in response to a WTB ad I had just refreshed. Seems suspect to me.

I have a WTB add and a junior member with 0 everything said he has exactly what I'm looking for. He's from San Francisco wants to ship to my FFL in Riverside sounds like the same guy a few have been targeted by. He now goes by Richard1911

Sounds like you all should maybe stop posting WTB threads... 99% of these interactions could be avoided

richardlee4637@gmail.com reached out to me with a rifle I'm looking for. Price good enough to be believable but refused to meet at ffl to transfer. He really wanted to ship to my ffl. Ran a search on his email & he is already in this list.

last 4 vistor(s) to this page were: 97c5driver barneycalhoun maxxisd pcsnim

sanetak122 gave me his brother's email(robbineddie09@gmail.com) and number(765-387-9757) said his borther can sell me his Sig Sauer SP2022 40S&W for cheap(I posted a WTB SP2022 San DIego)

His borther texted me that he is in Miami(Red Flag 2.) and can just send the gun to my address and asked if I can do the payment or not(Red Flag 3). $170 for Sig Sauer SP2022, Red Flag 4)

I was shocked and told him this is totally NOK in California, let him know it must go through FFL, he texted me back said OK.

His brother gave me an email Vera.jackson0411@gmail.com(Red Flag 4.) to receive the payment via Chase Zelle, said this is his wife's Chase Zelle.

With so many red flags, this entire text communication seemed very suspicious to me, I blocked his number and decided to post this.

I'm not sure if this is an online scam or not(maybe his brother just need the money so he could sell the SP2022 so cheap $170).

Post this to remind everyone be careful!

lucas8888 texted me to sell his SP2022, said he is in San Diego too, asking $450, OK, reasonable price.

however he said he will only do FFL2FFL transfer to send the gun to my FFL and ask for online payment.(Red Flag 2)

I insisted in doing face2face transaction at a FFL but he said he can NOT do face2face transaction at FFL delaer(Red Flag 3)

I blocked his number 207-329-6894 and deleted all the messages.

Not sure if this an online scam so I decided to post this for a record.

This richardlee4637@gmail.com also reached out to me.

"Hello, I have an SP2022 40s&w for sale. I'm located in in SF, Let me know if shipping to your preferred FFL would be an option."

I just deleted the mail from this trash.

Stop posting your email address and be sure to hide it in your profile. Force these scammers to use a calguns account to contact you

Default Beware of Newbie Buyer MrNiceBry

This guy doesn't respect the way this site works. He contacted me several times and asked for two weeks time then said he could do it within the week.
he then changed the days twice and then about 24 hours before we were supposed to meet said sorry found one for a cheaper price. All this after I marked my item SPF and told him I would stop bumping the ad. I should have done my due diligence before trusting this guy.
ZERO referrals and just joined 2-21-23, before trusting this guy.

Had a guy message me shortly after I posted a WTB thread. He emailed me directly and asked to communicate by text. Said his FFLs nearby were closed, as it was Sunday. He texted Monday and said he was ready to ship as soon as he got payment through Zelle, after a pause he offered that I could pay half up front and half after I receive. When asked to send pictures of both sides of the firearm with my name written on paper in the photos, and for the number of his FFL that I could call when he arrived to ship - he disappeared and the number was out of service for follow up messages.

Stay vigilant and don’t send money via Zelle etc without proper confirmation. Thieves abound.

His email was anthonydevito52@gmail.com, of course they are free to make more.

Username damndaniel aka richard luna back at his wasting of time. Guy blows up my phone for three days trying to get me to drive to LA to do PPT on a p320 spectre. I keep telling him no so he tells me he is going to make the drive down. He make sme send him ma million pictures multiple times like posts above say. We agree on price and of course day before he texts and states he cant make it. I asked him to show me post of closer pistol and he refuses. Wasted my time all week. I googled his number and saw multiple people say he was full of ****. I gave him a chance and he proved you all right. If you get a text from 909-231-7540 don't waste your time. Dude is a young broke kid dreaming
