I have been debating with myself about posting this as it may already be common knowledge. However, if I can warn one person off of this website then it will be worthwhile. I started looking for a nice over and under skeet gun about two or three months ago. Items like that are hard to find locally so I started looking on Gunbroker and other websites popped up including Armslist. I saw some shotguns that interested me, so I established an account and attempted to make contact with six different ads over a two week period. The ads were pretty cleverly done; not such a good deal that anyone would realize they were "too good to be true", but a good deal and with photos obviously not downloaded from Beretta or Browning's website. I received scam warnings from Armslist on four of the contacts and the other two responded to me but disappeared when the found out I wasn't going to mail them hundred dollar bills or a cashier's check without going through a third party such as PayPal or my bank. In the case of one of the "sellers" in Illinois I found the same pictures he had posted of the shotgun on an ad in Gunbroker from a pawn shop in South Carolina. I looked at Armslist's forums and they have a separate section about scammers. There must have been 30,000 posts. I would estimate 50% of the ads on that website are phony.
