Sadly I got scammed by user @greyworm. The mods have now banned him. I paid him $600 in a money order and never received the firearm. He gave me a fake ID. If you take an ID from a member I suggest you pay to validate the ID of the user ( I didn't).

Alexander Sholberg was the name on the fake ID.

This was an expensive lesson for me.

Yeah fair point @Angry Hippo
I guess in the past I've just always had such fair dealings I probably let my guard down a little bit. I definitely should have investigated his ID.
In the future you will not buy, sell or trade with anyone on the forum that doesn't have a posting track record and some time on the forum.

You are not the first one that got bit for doing so.

Learn from the experience.

Yesterday I went to the doctor, & waited in line at the check-in. The woman ahead of me was describing symptoms from the day before, that I did not want to catch: a 101 fever, throwing up, chills, balance issues, but today her temp was normal & no vomiting, but still chills. I quickly observed the "six foot" rule! She had insurance info, but forgot her driver's license. Then she volunteered something very strange: "I don't want my picture taken." Like who asked? Who takes pictures in a doctor's office? I went to a state of alert. Nevertheless, they admitted here to the doctor's office.

Then, while I sat in the waiting room, I wondered if she was wanted by the police. Sure enough, a few minutes later the clinic (armed) guards showed up: A slight man, & a real beefy woman. They entered the doctor's office.

I sat there, enjoying my diagnosis, & waited to see her escorted out in handcuffs. After about 20 minutes (I had to wait for lab test approval), the officers left without her. I was deeply disappointed & perplexed.

Then, after about ten minutes, it hit me. She was using someone else's insurance! I didn't stay after that, so I don't know what happened.

Later in the day, meeting with some friends, they were also perplexed, until I told them my analysis. Except for the ex-cop, who instantly said: "Identity theft. We see it every day."
