In Response To: Here's some real bad news on Brennan (Dragon)
I want to share my expensive lessons learned . Normally I do due diligence, got complacent from multiple deals that were actully quite pleasant on this board and other gun boards.
I got comfortable and didn't do the following which is my typical procedure:
- I didn't discuss the deal on the phone, only email
- I didn't ask for photos of the merchandise before sending money
- I sent a MO instead of PayPal which he accepted . I could have filed a challenge with PayPal.
-I didn't put his name and address into Google to see what pops up before sending money. When I did last night it was shocking.
-Debt consolidation fraud & arrest,
- Internet prescription fraud,
-selling guns illegally in Maryland.
After emails that were not returned, the Google research, and seeing other BOI issues I called the number in the ad. The guy that answered said I had the wrong number. So I notified Tom.
I could have prevented my own loss.
live and learn,
