In Response To: That sucks. My advice, involve cash up front, (Tom Bowers)
I agree about collecting the money up front. I normally only do 100% up front to start the transfer because I've had bad experiences with people not coming up with the rest of the money after it's approved.
I asked Tony for some type of deposit to start the transfer so that the transfer would already be approved when the rest of his money was available. I wanted to have some type of deposit to secure the guns.
He repeatedly told me he was the owner of Microtech, I've probably heard of him, he'll have plenty of money the first week of June to pay in full, etc, etc so I made the mistake of believing that.
I've had plenty of people flake out on a Mac or Uzi purchase but I've been pretty fortunate on larger purchases. I made the mistake of taking his word since he was in the industry and had a good reputation to my knowledge.
The guns have been sold for the same price to another buyer so I'm just out a month of frustration. I'm not especially mad just a little surprised. Lesson learned and just passing along my experience for the benefit of others.
