    That's a brilliant idea Brian, I think I will do the same on future big ticket items. Gives you a darn good witness in case of fraud.

    Yeah, i buy a lot of ammo, and gun parts, like mags, scopes, red dots, ect...

    The ammo has to go through UPS, but Ive never had a problem with that as its always through a dealer.

    Its when i buy Acogs, and Eotechs, and such.

    Ive had people try to rip me off on AR-15 kits, thats when i open in front of my postal carrier, shes a gun nut like i am so she doesnt mind seeing what i get.

    I have had to use her to write a statement that the box was empty, i had a guy one time actually send me a box of metal bars, when it was suppose to be a 2 AR-15 kits, valued at well over 1000.00.

    I also when i buy big ticket items now, i have the person send me a pic of the item with a post it type note on them , with a random number ( a number i choose ) written on the post it, that way i know they actually have the item in front of them.

    Another brilliant idea. I would love to see the reaction of some thief when you gave him the number to put in the picture. I sold a piece several weeks ago for $240 and the guy said his "secretary" had accidentally written the check for $2400. He told me to cash the check when I got it and then send the remainder of the money back to him. He told me to keep $100 extra for my trouble. I told him in a nice way that he was an idiot, and needless to say, he never mailed the check. I guess there are still rubes falling for these scams or they would quit doing it.
