BE WARNED:  SCAMMERS ARE ACTIVELY WORKING AGAINST THE GUN COMMUNITY ON TGO AND OTHER INTERNET FORUMS IN THE BUY/SELL/TRADE AREAS.

 

Folks, lately we have seen a significant uptick in scam attempts that go like this:

  • You post an ad for an item for sale or wanted.
     
  • A scammer contacts you about the item you are selling or looking for and offers to put you in contact with a friend or relative in Texas or some other state.
     
  • Throughout the whole thing, your Spidey Sense is tingling and telling you it seems suspicious... because it is!

 

 

We strongly recommend that you stick to dealing with local Tennessee residents only and that you use forms of payment that are guaranteed, secured, and cannot be retracted once the sale completes.  For example, you don't want to sell someone something via Venmo or PayPal, only to have them reverse the charge later after they have possession of what you were selling.

 

TGO remains a great place to buy and sell privately, but please be cautious and smart.  And please do not hesitate to report anything suspicious to us!

 

On behalf of myself, @MacGyver and the moderating team - thanks and be safe.
