    Now if they would catch this one.

    SSgt. Susan Williams USAF1 SOMOS/MXOOA Maintenance Analysis DSN 579-1794 <activj8@gmail.com>

    Almost had me for 1500.00 on a car. I felt something was fishy when she was offering a 2003 Toyota corolla with 38000 miles on it in mint condition for 1500.00. So I googled her name, turns out 205 people were already taken on the same scam.. All ebay invoices she sent for payment looked REAL.. How do they get away with this crap especially when they use an armed forces ID. She has also used other fake id's as well.

    I work for the Air Force and did a global search for SSgt Susan Williams and 8 names came up but only 3 were SSgt and none of them even came close to the organization listed with her name. I tried the DSN number and it is also bougus and not in service. Jeff Rickert

    Buying can be risky, but selling is a no brainer. Do NOT send anything until payment has cleared. Is it really so difficult to wait a day for a check to clear?

    I have an A+ 200+ feedback on GBrkr. Only ever had to bad feedback 1 person and have sale fees refunded about 3 times. Just word your ads and read whats written. An nothing goes ANYWHERE till cleared funds are in hand.

    And if an item isn't received as described (f the to bit pictures being posted) it should be returned. GB, TS and others it's all about the seller not really anything in it for the buyer once the check is in the mail. If you are for real and a good faith seller give the guy an inspection period. Most guns listed at 95% are really about 90% on here. Only a few seller on here I'd trust and take their word on a gun. Sort of want to see a gun with my hands and before I buy it.
