Default Active Scammer Alert

Guy is trying to sell SVT-40 Podolsk. He is a scammer. Below is his pathetic attempt at showing he actually has the rifle. Username Durkio on gunboards. Still not banned there. C&R is probably someones here. He is asking for payment to be sent to a Tracie in Pittsburgh California. She is likely the work from home drop person that forwards the money orders on to Nigeria.

That is also not an American way of writing a date (on the piece of paper). It is written day/month/year. Probably a photoshop too.

On the C&R it is hand dated month/day/year American style.

Exactly and the C&R is expired. Likely a previous victim?

Looks like photoshop addition to the rifle photo. I would definitely alert ATF.

It is. Sadly ATF will do nothing. Locals maybe.

Federal Firearms License Results

You Entered FFL Number: 9-77-XXX-XX-XX-03432

If you are certain you entered the correct license number, there is a strong possibility that the FFL you are attempting to verify is invalid and/or this may be an attempt at a fraudulent transaction.

You should not complete the transaction without first contacting ATF at 1-877-560-2435 for assistance.

C&R FFL's will not verify using the BATFE system. Just a heads up.

I would try to scare him and tell him you will be in San Jose to visit some relatives so you can stop by his house on Gatewood to complete the transaction

Actually you can find his “fiancée” on Facebook the only thing she might help out with is a discount on tools from harbor freight.

I don't believe Yifan Yang is the scammer. I believe he was scammed and scammer is in Nigeria using his expired C&R.

This is just wrong.

So wrong.

Having said that, would you mind if I copied this verbatim for future use?

He might not be a movie fan. I would leave the movie reference out of it.
