    Fraud Alert - Please Read

    Hello everyone, I wanted to draw your attention to a supposed seller here on this forum. Some time ago I posted a publication saying that I was interested in an aluminum stoick for an Anschutz 1907. I received a message from a user saying that this individual Carter Klaus (carterklaus420@gmail.com) had one to sell and i should contact him. So I did, and got back an email with 2 photographs of the complete rifle (Anschutz 1907 in a 1918 Precise stock) with a 1970GBP price. But i just need the stock so i ask him if he accepted to sell only the stock, and he accepted for 850GBP. For me it was still above my budget so i ask if he accepted to exchange his stock for my Walther KK200 aluminium stock with value adjustment. And he accepted to receive my stock plus 400GBP on is PayPal account (aliuedison123@gmail.com). It turns out that the photographs he send me looked familiar, as if I had already seen them elsewhere .... and in fact I already had, and it was not very difficult to find them again in the forum gunsinternational: https://www.gunsinternational.com/guns-for-sale-online/rifles/anschutz-rifles/anschutz-1907-in-1918-precise-stock-precision-22-rifle.cfm?gun_id=101074673 When the deal looks too good, it’s better to be suspicious! After this i did check this email carterklaus420@gmail.com and apparently this is not the first time that this individual has infiltrated the forums with schemes to deceive buyers as you can see in this alert : http://forum.pafoa.org/showthread.php?t=358188

    I was alluding to personal information fraudulent or not being disseminated in the public domain pertaining to the alleged perpetrator. If said person still had a look in browsing the forum they would have time to do a runner and assume a new identity and carry on any deception whether it be this forum or another one you don’t see police sacrificing hours of detective work being broadcast on a forum before bringing matters to a conclusion yes by all means flag up a bogey but keep important known information hidden so as not to show you/we have the upper hand I am sure there are quite a few forum members who are in a professional position to take this further but possibly the element of surprise has been lost

    I've let the Glasgow and Norfolk firearms know. Will see what they come back with.

    The number is all wrong for a start, the first 5 letters are the first 5 of the holder's name - they don't match. The next 6 numbers are the date of birth, again I cannot make a valid DOB from them (and doesn't match the DOB on the FAC), the next letter is the first initial (doesn't match) the next should be a number as Claus hasn't declared a middle name.... Too many fails.
