Usagunfactory.com is a delivery scam.

How a Fake Delivery scam works

In this scam, the criminal uses the domain usagunfactory.com to scam people by pretending to sell goods online from their website. Once you pay for the goods the scammer will not send them to you.

The scam has now just started. The scammer will now convince you that he will ship the goods to you. The scammer will create a fake shipping website and give you a shipping number. This is in order to steal even more money from you by charging you for shipping.

The scam continues

Now that you have invested money, the scammer will continue to charge you more and more fees. As you have already lost money you will be easier to convince because it is difficult to admit that you have been scammed. The scammer can charge you for multiple things including:

  • Cost of product
  • Shipping
  • Taxes (multiple times)
  • Airport fees
  • Bribes

    Came across USAGUNFACTORY.COM when looking for a specific hard to find shotgun model. They had what I was looking for at a great price. That was my first clue missed.
    I decided to place the gun in the site cart, just to see what happens next. Went to proceed with my purchase, and in the cart, it mentioned Zelle as the means to payment. As I was unfamiliar with Zelle, did some research and leaned it was a way for sending cash to individuals. Cash, my second clue missed.
    Later that day I received a mail from the website confirming my purchase, and later received a text message from (415) 521-2538 that said, “Hello will you like to complete your order with usa gun factory?”.” Got zelle set up?” I responded “Don’t know what that is or even who you are.” They replied “the agent handling your order.”
    With that they proceeded to explain how Zelle works and supplied me with a name “Aniya N” and an email address [email protected] . After reviewing the process through my bank, I decided to go for it. BIG MISTAKE!
    Just prior to sending dollars I asked how would I be notified when the product shipped. They responded “via email” and asked if I was new to their site, then added “shipping/tracking infor will be sent via email.” Third clue missed; the transaction should be done on site at an FLF dealer for a background check.
    But stupid me sent the money and text them a screen shot of the transaction, as requested. Then I ask for confirmation back, to which they replied “yes got it”. That was the last response, to any of my inquires, which was nearly a week ago. Didn’t try the email, just didn’t want them to have that too. Later checked my bank Zelle app, and surprise Aniya N. had deleted their Zelle registration.
    My hopes are others will learn from my mistake, listen to your gut and pay attention to the clues!
    Even as I’m about to post this review, my mind says maybe they well contact me. That’s the wishfully stupid side of me. Don’t listen to it.
