After tryig to report a crooked seller to the Tampa PD. (See Crooked Seller in this forum) They refered me to WWW.IC3.com.... Appearently a branch of the FBI setup for internet fraud. The deal seems to be an online report to the FBI who then refers the report to the local authorities for a "personal visit". We will see.

Do any of you guys know anything about this kind of deal?

How was the weapon to be shipped to you??? If it was USPS then you may want to contact a Federal Postal Inspector. It would be considered as mail-fraud... I had a couple of wanna be scammers trying to purchase a rifle, that i have listed on GSD..... they wanted me to ship the rifle overseas...yea right...i fell off a turnip truck, only yesterday!!..LOL...Later, Nohub
