    Default (Fraud report!) Armslist.com - Zenith 9MM Z-5P

    Hello everyone.
    I am creating this post as a means to prevent other from falling into this scammers trap. I only ask that you do not judge me for not seeing the obvious trap I got into. Good deals do actually happen and I have been very successful on Armslist.

    What happened.
    I have been shopping for a Zenith Z-5P (MP5 k) for a few months now. I found a couple within my price range on armslist ($1200-$1700). I messaged most of them all at once. One listed as a " Zenith 9MM Z-5P " model with the tri lug attachment I had been looking for priced at $1300. The seller responded and mention that it was still available. I replied with my normal questions asking if he would be willing to ship to an FFL and if he would send me a few more pictures. He responded that that was alright. He said he would even send a copy of his driver's license to the FFL for his records. The pictures looked fine. He asked for my FFL contact and address. Nothing suspicious yet. I agree to purchase. I use my typical method of PayPal friends and family to send payment. I become a little suspicious when the PayPal email was different than what was listed on Armslist. However, the seller assured me that this was his son's email as he was banned because of a previous buyer describing a firearm in the transfer. (Something against PayPal's terms and service) The seller said he was unable to ship the firearm because working late today but would have it go out the following day. Well, I know have no contact with him. He will not respond to messages and Paypal is not able to refund the money due to it being on their terms and service. To add insult to injury after payment, he sent me a list of other firearms for sale as a means to come up with money to pay for his wife's leukemia treatment.

    "My wife’s recently diagnosed leukemia and i need cash for my medications so i am putting out my firearms collections for sale , Please let me know if you might be interested in them or have anyone looking for some nice collections.also i will be shipping out tomorrow morning as i work late today

    Here are the list

    1. CMMG Banshee 300 - $1000
    2 Russian Arsenal SGL-21 - $800
    3 HK MR556- $1550
    4 CZ 805 S1 Bren FDE- $700
    5 Colt M4A1 SOCOM US Govt property- $1000
    6 Sig MCX Rattler- $1200
    7 B&T GHM9 $1000
    8 Springfield Armory SAR-48 Rifle $1300
    9 Browning XT O/U trap gun- $900"


    I have listed all the information I have from him at the bottom of this post. I hope that if you come across any of these emails you will be aware.

    His main email used: ( Big Snoz , [email protected] )
    Paypal email: ( Sean Luck , [email protected] )
    His address: Richard Smith
    7440 Chase dr
    Arvada, CO 80003

    Sucks. But the fact that the items are WELL under market value is a red flag. Never deal long distance on Armslist unless you're willing to lose your money.

    Perhaps you can report him to the local police department.

    I think this is the right course of action since you have his address.
