Since it’s a scam someone usually places a ridiculous bid to screw the scammer and keep some unsuspecting buyer from placing a bid in earnest. It’s not like a scammer is going to file a non-paying bidder report.

What’s preventing them from reporting someone who bids and doesn’t pay?

The fact that they don’t have the gun they’re advertising for sale in the first place I guess, not trying to be a smartass, but if I was a scammer who got figured out, I wouldn’t bring more attention to myself by filing claims. I suppose nothing is keeping them from hitting the report button, but it wouldn’t end well for the seller in the end I imagine.
For what it’s worth, I don’t place the crazy bids on obvious scams, I just report them because I wouldn’t want to deal with the hassle.

No disrespect, but someone has to do something to protect ourselves and others, since GB doesnt give a rats ass about us.
I dont blame you nor am I criticizing you. I think its commendable that you report it to GB As we all should, but I do not believe that GB is receptive to reports and take their time in reacting to said report.
@Tailflash should be commended for his actions!

Gunbroker has done nothing but fuel overbidding and scalping. I stopped using the site months ago.
I agree. Gunbroker is probably the leading cause of inflated gun and ammo prices. People get into a frenzy and spend absurd amounts of money on auctions. I gave up on Gunbroker months ago.
