This guy is good I posted i wtb for a Finnish m39. He send me a email for a sneak m39. He wanted 500 for it which wasn’t out of the realm of possibility. He had really good pics of it. I said no at first and then he went to 400. He was using big_fish I’d tag on here. He used broken English somewhat and used the correct verbiage for FFL and drivers license. His email is [email protected]. He asked for only PayPal friends and family presumably because PayPal would not give a refund for a firearm purchase.

Watch out

Well its not the Tony G on the forum, he hasn't been on line since 2013. But by putting your email address on your WTB ad only invites scammers to contact you without having to register on the sight and thus being immune to us blocking him.

Here sre the last 15 people to log into your home page, and none of them have anything like the tag "big_fish" associated eith them. But I will check around other areas to see if i can find them.

If you can check my pm you will see a pm from big_ fish about an m39. I looked at big_fish and he seems active enough asking questions about random things in the forums so I’m thinking someone is using his name. I confronted the guy over his email and he kept sending my PayPal emails to pay for the rifle. He is good one and he has broken English but knows what the verbiage is for sending firearms to people. He only wants PayPal friends and family. Anything else he gets defensive.

Ok, found Big_ Fish was banned back on 6/13, but I am confused now, if Big_ Fish is sending you the PMs why the Title "scam by Tony G" on your post?

Who is Tony G then?

His email is tony g! I’m guessing when you respond to him in yahoo it comes up tonyg! That’s why I titled it tony g who knows who big fish is I don’t know I posted a name or so I thought.

We can only search by the users screen name, not his email address sir.

I am going to edit the title to reflect Big_ Fish also.
