As some of you may or my not know, We have been working very hard to keep the scammers off of this site. We have been removing scam ads, baning the members that post them as well as their Ip addresses if we can, and are working on some new programing that will pretty much eliminate them.

Here is the problem they are getting wise and changing tactics. They are now responding to Want ad posts Via Email. this we Have little or no controll over. So here are a couple of quick tips.

***When some one is responding to your ad please remember if it is too good to be true it usually is.

***Never ever ever Western union money to a seller (with the only acception being if you already have the items and they have cleared fish and wildlife and customs)

***Allways get a Valid full name address and phone number from the seller and Check them. You can google them, and use whitepages.com.

***Never send money with out first talking on the phone to them on a call that you placed not them! (these scammer will give you all kind of crazy excuses about why they can not talk to you , every thing from they are deaf to there phone is turned off to i accidental dropped it in the torlit)

***Trust your Gut feelings if you think it might be a scam and any of the above did not check out.... simply walk away.

***Additionally there are a handfull of scammers here in the US such as Bob Slone and his 50 aliases. these are a little harder to controll or detect but at least here we can go after these domestic scammers legally (which By the way if you have been scammed by Bob Sloan please send me the details.)


If you have been contacted by some one that is a scammer please email me their details and we will start making a list so these scum bags will have to make a new email for every scam they try to pull.


Thanks, Michael Vaden

Please check back often as I will be adding more info and names to the list of scammers

Here is the first name for the list:
Nicholas Upshaw <nicholasuph@yahoo.com answered an ad for white tail capes wanted

Cris Dan lesaprivateltd@gmail.com AKA EGBENCHONG DANIEL AYUK, AKA macpherson, (Responding to want ads)


the scumbag above is also responding to ads under the name below..

Unless its me, lol, I really cant hear on the phone and use a tty service haha.. But I also use paypal and not western union... :-D

Another 'want ad' reply, this one was to a zebra cape:

Email: andysanch@yahoo.com
Contact: Darwin C./Darwin Chris
Lowell, Massachusetts
01853, USA
226-845-9120

Their getting real smart though. Because first contact wasnt broken english and gave the option of coming to their shop in Massachusetts to pick up the cape.

I had to talk him out of a last name and phone number much to his being offended and upset. After an attempt by an associate to call the provided non working number the only responses I get are in reference 'respecting his personality before saying certain things' and of course now all I get is "sorry i cant get you can you email me your number to call you? i have been expecting your call long" Obvious scammer...

Take care folks.

Also, that gary johnson guy has copied part of my 'email signature' so he has to be one of the scammers thats been after me! One of the only ones has been that jason campbell or bob sloan or whatever his name is.. So your other guy could possibly be him too?

This guy responded to my wanted ad for turkey wings and has insisted I pay him by Walmart moneygram. Said his shop is just meters away from Walmart. RED FLAG! He uses the email markwhitehead236@yahoo.com.

Just wondering if the same rules apply in here about ten day bumping. Or is this a free for all area where we can keep bumping every day?

I think having a physical voice is excellent! If you're not comfortable with talking on the phone, then you shouldn't be posting on here.

Not to mention, I had a scammer answer to one of my posts. He asked to speak to me on the phone, but I didn't have a problem with that... he was VERY pushy about getting me to buy, even going so far as to say "it was related to my totem animal" and such. I was VERY wary.

In that case, if you feel something's wrong, your gut is USUALLY right. Trust that instinct and you'll stay out of trouble.

Just an added note: If you have been scammed, you can report the incident to the IC3. They're a crime unit dedicated to instances of online theft, fraud, and things of that ilk. They've worked for me before on more than one occasion.

Hi Michael vaden! I'm new here and got an extremely fishy email today, thought you might want to see it, I'm just gonna paste it below, I posted in the wanted section Lookin for a cougar skull,

From, micheal jime email/jimemicheal@yahoo.com
I have attached pictures of the lion skulls
The lion skulls have no cracked teeth and all nasal cavity bones are perfect. One large and two medium size. One has a cracked cheek bone that was done in the wild. See pics.One of them has had the tiny tooth behind the upper canine removed for age testing. I'm asking $400 for all three +  shipping. They are not spray sealed yet but can do that if you like before shipping,

I am located in North Caolina 27530

asking $30 including shipping to your address

if ok then will accept payment via CBD option from EMS

This payment option means that, the ems will take the responsibility to ship your package and send payment to me only when you have received your package. In this case, i  will use but my shop address to follow up the registration of your package with EMS. As soon as i am done with the registration, then ems will contact you and give you detail on your item. So you shall be sending payment to the ems and they will keep payment and have your package delivered before sending their agents to hand my payment to my sales agent at  my shop


Please your detail address should contain the following
Your full name
Your street and house address
Your city, State and zip code


Please send them to me as soon as possible so that it can be printed so that the delivery arrangements is followed up as soon as possible


Thanks and waiting for your full delivery information
EMS Will notify you with the details once i register your package with them and inform you of the departure and arrival time of your package with them to you

this is to the post Charlie3am posted

first its illegal to import without the correct paperwork ems as far as I know is international only so its coming from overseas that's first
second lets say the paper work is all in order or its coming from the us the shipping company does not care if you got a brick or a lion skull when they deliver they pay
also you can tell English is not the language they speak (we don't speak text book English) and more don't want to point them out just in case they see this

I would never go for this deal

  hope everyone is well :)
