I was not going to post anything about it but I do not want anyone else to go through this.

I had a gun for sale in semi's
Got a response from someone and they sent me a check.
He did not want to go through a FFL dealer.
This was a transaction between Idaho & California.
My wife found a local gun shop in his area to ship to.
We would pay for the FFL paperwork.
Then she calls me and tells me the ck is NSF.
I told her not to ship the gun. ( I was out of town at the time )

I get back and this person badmouthed me on this forum.
I did not jump on and bad mouth back.
And I won't do it now.

The moderator took care of it himself.
Very diplomatic, and spent a lot of time on the matter.
We have some great people here!

Thanks again to the moderator for handling this situation.
Have a merry Christmas everyone.

I saw this topic over in classifieds after the lock was in place. To be clear MarkD. Did you receive a personal check or cashiers check. Scams appear to be on the fast rise and I would like to make sure this wasn't a forged cashiers check. Just tonight a neighbor was distributing a small note door to door saying she witnessed a car speed down the street towards her mail box not long after she put outgoing mail in her box and raised the flag. They then raced off. Several mailboxws were emptied of there mail a month ago, your situation isn' relevent to mail issues here but scams and mail theft are out of control and as I understand it mail frod/identity theft are feeding crystal meth drug habits. If the guy buying your gun was truely ohnest this wouldn't be the end of the deal he would make good. Avoiding a transfer to FFL dealer would be slightly illeagal....isn't it? There is a red flag waiving high on the what's wrong with this picture pole. Good thing gun wasn't shipped.

I do believe its illegal to ship between states without a FFL. Big red flag! I'm glad to hear it all turned out alright. We do have great mods here.

Mark,

I have read the history of your situation, and it is unfortunate that you had to deal with someone like that. The admin at SGW has never been shy about getting rid of unsavory characters. Glad you are still with us and Merry Christmas.
