Found this ad on Texas gun trader.

Sure looks suspicious to me. Would you report this to the FBI
I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon. . . I’ll let you know.

It probably IS the fbi... looking to pinch those that want to buy outside the system.

Bizarre for sure. The stated location (Soddy-Daisy, TN) is probably bogus.

I suspect the FBI, ATF, or someone already knows about this. I did a search on the phone number (which is a north-Texas cell number) and turned up a lot of questionable ads for gun sales and Xanax sales.

Certainly someone that I would avoid.

It was posted from Douala, Cameroon. I wouldn’t waste my time doing anything.

Well, there really is a Soddy-Daisy, TN. I'd suggest this is a scam either to get your money, or get you in prison...

Thats totally a sting op.

Real criminals aren't so obvious... The Feds have to be obvious so that when it goes to court they don't have to fight generic terminology.

It's a scam. There is no gun. Once they get your cc, they're done with you.

I check every add to see where it was posted from. Just the IP and location of where they were when they made the post will tell you all you need to know.

Yea.. Just went back and found other scam listings he has put up.. I.P search somewhere in South America.... I posted a Scammer warning on the announcement page of TGT... When I first saw the ad this morning before I had my first full cup of coffee in my system I thought it was someone trying to illegally sell that one gun.... After looking things over I realized it was just a scammer trying to get your $$$$...

Other than that I love using TGT... I've purchased and sold several different items there and have met some really nice people... One who I am becoming friends with now....
