    I bought a 101 field stock from Robert. You can check out the thread above. He said it was sold to me then resold it out from under me according to the email he sent to me when I inquired about my check and the stock. I have sent him a check for the stock but still have no stock. Beware because he is a crook. I hate crooks and unethical people especially when they tarnish a great site. Robert if you've got the guts to contact me and make this right I'll send you my number.

    Birddog,
    As of now the check is not cashed but it is still outstanding. Just thought I could trust this guy. I've been pming him with no answer but finally got an email back today. If the check gets cashed then I'm goin to the police along with the post on here, emails, and the pms. This guy really pissed me off.

    Why didn't (don't) you stop payment on the check?

    The check was for about $50 and my bank charges $20 for a stop pymt. I'm not sure it's worth it, of course they may not actually charge me. In 15 plus years that I've had an acct I've never had to stop pymt on one.

    You are lucky that was only $50.00. It could have been $5,000.00. Then you would have had something to lose sleep over.

    Rick the fact is the stock was to fix my Dads gun. On top of that I had told him I had bought it to fix his gun. It's not the money it's the dishonesty that ticks me off. You ought to know that Texas boys don't take any crap from crooks.

    Cut your loses; stop payment on the check. Be glad it hasn't been cashed yet and that it wasn't for a helluva lot more money. If you're not willing to do at least that much for yourself, stop whining about it here.

    First it was because it was $20, now it's that the bank is closed. Make up your mind.

    Ee, The bank was closed but I had my handy dandy book that you get when you open your account. It's amazing it has all kinds of details including acct services and fees. Are you related to this guy or is it just another one of your handles on here. Thanks for your concern though.

    JimmyC, don't pay any attention to EE as he is known as the Negative one on TS.com. I honestly can't remember even one nice thing that he has ever posted. It would upset me regardless of the the amount of money. I bought some hulls from an individual on here for $70.00 but the one kid never sent them. I found out through one of the other posters who he was and what club he shot(and worked) at and he decided to send me the hulls and half the money back. Jackie B.

    Here's today's email.


    Jimmy
    I read your post on trapshooters wanting to buy the stock.I  received an email soon after asking where to send the money.It  turned out that it was not you who sent the email(I mistakenly  thought it was you)and sold t he stock to what I now realize was  someone else.I'm sorry for the misunderstanding and confusion.The  other party paid quickly with a . check.written on a company    acct.I have never received a check from you for and was quite  surprised about the whole thing.Do you have a cancelled check or  M.O. with an endorsed signature?If so please email me a copy of  it,but I have not receive one from you as of today 12/12/09.

    The problem is he agreed to send me the stock. I followed through. I think he has my check but sold the stock out from under me for more money. THATS THE PROBLEM.
