1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Beware of a con answering your WTB posts, saying he has what you want. I looked up his posts and find that he is answering WTB ads with the same wording each time. Also, he offers for sale items that are the exact same ones, including photos and exact word descriptions, as on GunsAmerica. Obviously copied GA ads. Funny, one item he has for sale is in VA and the other in MN. Ol' Willie gets around a lot....

    He sent me an answer to my wtb thread---Had just what I wanted at a good price.
    He gave me a Calif address---I told him I would only deal FFL to FFL and needed a pic ID----Never heard from him again---Can't say he is a fraud but very interesting----Just do what I did and we may know more----SJB---

    Thanks for the heads up! I posted a WTB on TS.com for a friend for an item that is more rare than hen's teeth. He responded quickly but was very ambigous about his whereabouts. Thanks again!

    His wording has foreign scammer all over it.

    I think this site can live without Willie.

    He offered to sell me a rather obscure Coleman kerosene lantern. The photo he sent was of a very common model and not kerosene. He instructed me to pay by western union to an address in south-central LA. I refused. he is a crook for sure.

    I want to add two important details. his responses to my emails were never on target, as if he didn't really understand what i was saying. Also, he said he wanted payment via Western Union on Wednesday so that he could ship on Thursday (Thanksgiving) Clearly, something is not jake. Both the WU request and the promise to ship on a holiday are red flags. Williej is a bad risk in my book.

    I corresponded with him and told him that I'd be willing to meet him to take a look at the "barrel" he offered me and pay him cash on the spot, of course, no answer back!

    HaHa I love it! I've got a few emails from Willie also for "stuff" I'm looking for. If anyone gets taken by Willie they're a D*A*.

    wILLIE CALLED ME THE OTHER DAY AND TOLD ME I HAD WON THE PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE SWEEPSTAKES TO THE TUNE OF $3.5 MILLION. HE SAID THEY WERE ON THE WAY TO MY HOUSES WITH THE 2012 MERCEDES AND THE CHECK AND HAD AN ACCIDENT WHICH WOULD DELAY THEM.

    SINCE IT WASN'T VERY FAR FROM MY HOME I OFFERED TO DRIVE OVER AND PICK UP THE CHECK AND MAKE SURE THE CARE WAS REPAIRED PROPERLY BUT HE TOLD ME THAT I HAD TO PAY A $350 DELIVERY CHARGE AND THAT THE BEST WAY WAS FOR ME TO GO TO THE WESTERN UNION AND WIRE THE MONEY.

    I REALLY SCREWED UP!!! I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD AT THAT POINT THAT I DIDN'T GET THE ADDRESS TO SEND IT TO SO IF ANYONE TALKS WITH WILLIE WOULD YOU PLEASE GET ME THE ADDRESS SO I CAN GET MY MONEY AND MY NEW CAR.

    THANKS,
