How a Fake Delivery scam works

  1. I was a recent dupe.. I lost $1400… I was too trusting… And didn’t do my usual investigation into the company first…. I should have guessed it was a scam…. Anything too good to be true probably isn’t…

  2. They are the ONLY ones with a specific weapon I want…. I called to ask them a few questions. The fact that they do not take credit cards – but only Western Union money transfer, bitcoin and Venmo is a give away that something is up. I wasn’t planning on sending them $ after I saw that. Plus, they are “supposedly” located in California, which wouldn’t allow some of the weapons that they have for sale on their website… But, for the heck of it – I called their ph # – it is a Google Voice #, and the guy who answers can barely speak English.

  3. They got us. Website looked legit. Phone number was a Redding number. Was a little weird they didn’t list a street number and name. We knew that when they wanted an additional $550 for shipping insurance a few hours after we transferred them payment, that it was a scam. When my husband said we would like to cancel the order, they said good luck with that.

    Our bank can’t do anything because we initiated the transaction. Zelle can’t do anything because they can’t/don’t have the details of the transaction.

    I live chatted with GFS on their website and asked if we can stop by to look at guns and they said they are strictly shipping. They are supposedly located in San Francisco, but I’m sure that is a lie, too.
