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.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Yep, had the same response from him to an add I posted looking for 410 tubes. He wanted me to send the money using Western Union. That is a big red flag. Beware of this guy.

    He's from Nigeria and he's really not a bad guy. He gave me $30,000,000 that some relative that I had never even heard of left to me in their will because they had no other relations to pass it onto.

    There are too many skeptics on this forum and sometimes you need to stop looking gift horses in the mouth and go with your gut instinct.

    Tron, I'm not related to you but could use a few hundred, with that much money you will never miss it. Probably you won't get it back either. Ken U

    Anything from an Iphone is a big red flag. When I was selling things on Craigslist I would get messages from Iphones and they were nothing but pranks and people trying to be funny.

    Same idiot try to get me. I guess it would be wise to no longer use the e-mail under your user name. I try to trust everyone until they prove to me they are not trustworthy.
    I have never had any problems with deals from other ATA members on here and it is pretty easy to see if someone is a member in good status.

    Sure Hoot. That's just a drop in the Atlantic. These folks from Nigeria and Kenya are actually righteous dudes. I simply answered their Emails and gave them some basic information about myself and some bank account numbers so that they could deposit the cash in my account and it was a done deal. I should be seeing that massive transaction within a week or so, so when I get it, the money is yours.

    I mean, why not share a bit with my fellow Trap shooters?

    Tron--Sorry to hear about the passing of that relative. That really sucks you never got to meet them. I can't believe how nice those Nigerians are to help track you down and even offer to direct deposit it into your account. No worring about lost checks or that mess. Just makes me feel warm inside to know there are still good people out there. I mean they probably could've just ran with the money but instead they really care. Talk about a feel good story.

    I always reply:

    "Mr. Buwame, thank you for your inquiry. We can schedule your penis enlargement operation for October 10, pending receipt of 5 Thousand U. S. Dollars in certified funds."

    I usually don't hear from them after that.

    I always trust these folks. I usually save these e-mails to another e-mail I have, then forward all the old ones back to the newest one that I receive. I figure that way they might respond. I got a real junk mail from Barack Obama this morning asking me to donate. I am thinking about donating a penny each time I get something from him figuring it probably will cost them a few bucks to process it.
