Guys, please don't bother posting email scams...

They're a daily occurrence, and subguns.com can't do anything to prevent scammers from emailing people.
Scams originating from folks actually advertising on subguns, we can kill accounts, modify ads to note it's a scam, etc..
Since we changed the Classifieds to require a phone call to get an account, we haven't had any scammers successfully get through...so far. Reality indicates it *will* happen at some point, and that's when they get dangerous and can really have a good opportunity to victimize subguns users.
Always keep in mind that scammers almost universally will appeal to greed. If you think you're taking advantage of someone's ignorance of the value of an item, it's probably the other way around.
If you're unsure of a deal, real folks who actually have a real gun to sell will be able to send you a "proof of life" photo with a note with your name on it laying on the gun, or some other easy snap nobody would have if they stole the photo from the interwebs.
