Has anyone done business with Ach Loc? I placed a want add in this forum. I was contacted by him on my personal email. he stated he had the item I needed. Provided pictures. We agreed upon a price ($100.00 shipped). I still have not received item after many attempts to get shipping info. He has provided excuses. He even requested I send him an additional $100.00 so he could ship item. Randy.

Run away! If he's asking for more money (twice the money!) after an agreed price is already sent, it's got to be crooked. Don't throw good money after bad.
Now, if you eventually get your item, great, but it doesn't sound legit at this point.
How did you send the money?

Edited to add: I see no user on this board with that handle.

Unfortunately, this is a common scam. Someone just pops up out of nowhere with exactly what you need.

I note that you posted your email address in your ad for a cylinder. It's not a good idea to post one's email address online. It just opens the door for a scammer to contact you. Using the PM feature is a little safer.

Also sixgunner, it may be possible to go after the person legally. If you sent a money order through the mail. it might qualify as illegal in their eyes and the postal police may chase them down (postal fraud). Or check with whomever issed the paper that the funds were sent to them on.

Just a thought.

Gentlemen, sorry for taking so long to respond. I have learned a valuable lesson about online sales. A few of you hit the nail on the head.

1) Do not ever include your personal email in a WTB listing. I wrongfully assumed he was a forum member.
2) I paid through Paypal. "Do not send money via Paypal "to a friend". Paypal will not help you, because it was "a gift".

My credit card company says they will re-pay me the #100.00 dollars lost through fraud in 7 days time.

Hurt my pride, guess it was a cheap lesson learned. Now to find another 22LR Single Six Cylinder. Anybody got one. I've got an Old Madel SS that needs one.

Thanks to all. Learn from my mistake. Randy.

Gentlemen, I also forgot to mention. Avoid like the plague anyone answering to:

Ach Loc / Pamela Whitehead / or anr70582@gmail.com. These are his handles. Randy.
