Possible Scam going on this sight!!!!!

I had a Glock 22 for sale in the classified on this site. I

had it listed for $490.00, which no one in there right mind

would pay for it but that was the least I could take for as

much as I had In. well the add was up for so long I

forgot about it, until member"younghernandeazz" replied

saying he would pay full price and then some. Long story

short and 2 months later, He sends me a check for

$3000.00. If that is not enough, He said His "Shipper"

needed the rest of the money, close to $2400.00 sent via

western union immediately after the check clears my

bank, then they said someone would be buy tomorow, to

pick it up. I went to my band and the instantly said I was

being scammed and not to touch the 3000.00 I deposited

on friday. what they do is get you to draw cash and give

it to them, then the check goes bad. I thought the

community here would like to know that. I have all the

email corispondance and message from this website

between Mr. Young Hernandez, I will keep them for

records. I will not be sending anyone any money buy

western union. Oh, the supposed shippiing company

called me today and said they would be buy tomorow, I

said no such thing will happen, I am being scammed, she

said oh, ok, I will look into it. let me know what you think?

Here is the latest email from the scammer. Young Hernandazzz

"I told you in the first place of these transaction that i have a shipper who ship my items and they have ship a raffle4 for me from germany before without problem like these.and now am having my truck and my child sound instrument with their agencies and i want them to ship everything together that why i multiply alk their fund with your check to avoid too much tax on my account.but if you are not comfortable with these transaction!let leave i will mail my financial bank"

What do you guys think? I wrote back and said I am not comfortable with this, that if it turned out to be his money,and is proven to my safisfaction, from his bank and mine, I would send him a certified check to him for the amount, other wise the money isn't going anywhere and neither is the gun! (that he won't mention, I can found out from the bank I deposited it)

I don't doubt that their are scammers out there. This forum has had it's fair share of nuts.

"I'm from Nigeria and need a S&W 500 50 caliber revolver." Nobody NEEDS a 50 caliber revolver.

"I'm from Lithuania and I need some 50 caliber ammo for my sniper rifle." Yeah RIGHT. Nice try Boris.

This wedsite has seen them all. Did you sell that Glock 22? I have some swamp land in Alabama that I would trade for it. I'll give you half and acre.

Hey, that's a good gun! I still have it. I also have a RIAM1911A1 with 3 mags, a Beretta model 84FS .380, and a Mossberg model 500 cruiser pistol grip pump shotguns. I was seeing if I could sell it or not. Not for what I paid for it, I'm keepin it. THe swamp land doesn't sound too good either. lol
