    Possible Scammer out there on forums. Heads up guys.

    Copy&Paste from http://forum.accurateshooter.com/index.php?topic=3788743.new#new

    Copy&Paste
    smoking_guns10 AKA Terry Grindle and his wife Hazel Grindle uses many different names on many sites cheating people. These are all the same guy:
    Smoking guns
    B00mer
    Tclover
    gun_doctor
    Bluelinegunsmithing
    Oldfartz
    OLDFART
    Bangumbigass
    Bigb00mer
    stagarmsfan
    Maddog 2020
    revolverfan2
    and the list goes on and on.

    I made the mistake of buying a press from him listed as "excellent condition" and it's an old worn out lee press, that was rusty so he painted over it and glued the handle back on.

    After a little search I find he has been scamming people on several gun sites when he is not in jail.
    He has 48 post on this site and every one of them are selling in the classifieds. Some of these are expensive items and I don't want to see more people get screwed. This is the first time I have ever been cheated on a gun site. He has been banned from several sites already.

    A couple of those usernames were banned from CSF for that very reason.

    Yes, yes he does. Screwed me on some shotgun chokes on TFL back before CSF was started.

    You have to be very careful with folks' integrity these days. A couple of guys in Charlotte this week were selling subscriptions to magazines for rest homes. They took a check for $20 on at least two occasions and converted those to $400 before cashing. Somebody said "cash is king".

    Times are tough, and we all have to use our better instincts.

    His IP, and most people's IP probably changes regularly since most people use a dynamic IP.

    There have been crooks and cheats since the dawn of time. Nothing different today than 1000 or even 50 years ago.

    I agree! As a business owner, I've seen this first hand over the past year or so. We've had some very good customers "good old boys...(seriously)" hit hard times in the past few years. Most are honest, tell me the truth, and are good at their word even if the terms would have been ridiculous 4 years ago. Still, I am fortunate enough to be in a position that allows their terms, and I'll bend over backwards, cuz "there...but for the grace of God...go I", but we have had some that are quite the opposite.

    And that is why I have no reservations using my real name on here I have nothing to hide and I want my word to actually mean something amongst Men ...and Women. and i dont have to worry about anyone trying to track me down as my dog will just eat a little better that day. he sure loves fresh meat whether it is people, pork, coon or possum. if he dont know you expect for him to introduce himself very quietly and with out warning.

    Thanks guys I followed lots of the links and cant believe these people. I live about 30 mins from the bessemer city location. I could have easily fallen victim to them. These characters had so many diff names i would get the feeling that the gun loving society Americans had really changed I have lickily not had any bad deals with any one i have met here or other forums. Face book gun pages too. Knock on wood.

    Well as it turns out he had snuck back in amongst us as gun_doctor. That IP was new and didn't track back to any of his previous IP addresses. And in some cases his old usernames were banned so long ago (in the CSF days) that the IP address is no longer listed in the profile that is visible to us.

    I am going to sticky this thread so that we don't lose track of this guy again.
