****** BEWARE OF FAKES ******
« on: July 22, 2013, 10:12:00 AM »
Some of the folks that have been banned, one guy screwed another on a $3500 riser...he and his crew are trying to 'DROPBOMB' the site....

MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE DEALING WITH!!!!

If anything sounds fishy...let me know.

If they are NOT a member here BEWARE!!!

If their name is in any way different then their profile.....BEWARE!!!!!...and concact us...and make a post exposing them.

These folks actually screw folks and then laugh about it.  What they don't know is they have a snitch in the bunch.....but I'm sure they will find out now that I have posted about it.

That would be worth going after for me, infact 50 cents would be worth going after if they were going to cheat me.

That amount is a FELONY OFFENSE, not just a misdemeanor. I would pursue it and put the guy in PRISON, not just a short while in jail. Thanks Terry!

I had a situation where a guy cheated me out of $10,000 I took him to court won a judgement and he turned around and filed bankruptcy. I then couldn't do anything. I showed up to his hearing and it did no good. Just beware when spending any large amount of money.

I got taken a couple times or the 2nd time I'm still not sure,,, moderators here handled one of the times for me and I did get my money back and the person is STILL on the scammers list which means the moderators weren't playing around but there was another time I sold a bow then the person said the bow broke and wanted his money back so I asked for picture of the bow and did refund then a buddy at work said the picture they sent was a photo shop and it wasn't even the same colors on the delaminated limbs in the picture it just looked weird but I couldn't prove it and just hope it wasn't true and moved on..

so yes be careful refunding money or trading back bows too.

EDITED in --> I forgot to mention that other than my couple things I have had nothing but good experiences here maybe over 100 deals all good, and many good conversations, made some new friends, and learned of some new hunting spots.

I read more than I post here. I always provide my location and phone number. I expect the same in return.
Courtesy and helps on both ends. Made a few new friends this way too.  All good so far.
Thanks Terry.

A $3500 riser? I'd like more details, not on the scammer and his naive buyer, but on the riser. Embedded with ivory, turquoise and gold flecks? Carved from mammoth tusk?

Some of those early Bear takedowns are rather rare and have been going up in price.  When folks see what big dollars they are bringing, it's tempting to try something foolish.  

It pays to know the merchandise, but sometimes it's better to know the seller.

Pcg. It was a stickbowman signed type 1 a riser. It had holes and buyer was not happy, nor could he obtain a refund from seller. It's not uncommon for such an item to bring that kind of money in nice shape. I know this because I purchased one in April, and know the sale price on a few others. The people that Terry is mentioning Will more than likely be at Denton Hill. Look over every purchase carefully. Just a word to the wise.
