    A Mr.Harlon Harris in Texas advertised a Beeman R-9 Air rifle for sale on May 1. I send a Postal Money Order as payment on 05/05 by Priority Mail and Harlon responded affirmatively. Mr. Harris has not responded to further e-mails as to status. He is a former ATA shooter who has not registered in several years. If anyone knows him or may have information regarding this individual it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hopefully Neubius this guy is alive and well, his computer is on the fritz, and the post office has re-opened after a major league ant infestation. A simple response from easy100 would be sufficient!!

    Kiss your money goodbye and learn from your mistakes? That could possibly be a now what.

    Did you seriously not even get a phone number from the person? I bet you also got a POBox instead of an actual physical address.

    Post the information you received from him and let people try and search him out ... unless all you got was an almost untraceable box # to send your money and never get anything at all in return except a learned lesson.

    Chances are they are not the same person since the two locations are about 160 miles apart and the person and phone numbers that oletymer posted pops up all over the place with various good business references.

    Olliedawg - post the address and all the information you have on the person so people can help instead of just blindly stumbling along and not really doing anything but wasting there time for you.

    So you never even got a phone number for the guy ... you have a high percentage chance of never seeing your money or your bb gun.

    I would think yes but I think the reaction you will get if you tried to pursue it would be a thank you and they will look into it and as soon as he is around the corner or hangs up the phone a loud sound of laughter and comments as the the suckerability of some people to just so blindly send money to others they no nothing about.

    Seriously I hope he gets his little gun or his money but I honestly think it is a slim to no chance at all of it happening.

    His name is in the shooters info on the A.T.A. site looks like a 22 yarder and a non member since 2004 he also said he won the Texas state championship before but didn't see his name but he had shot 25 100 straights he said. so maybe the Texas people will know if he won one of the events or not.

    Newbius, even if we can't track this bugger down at least his chances of defrauding others on this site are seriously eliminated!!

    Gene, if you're asking me if I can verify delivery the answer is no. If you're also asking me if I received any replies to numerous emails you'll get the same answer nor have I received the goods. Quite obviously the person at that address does not have high regards for Mr.Harris and hasn't seen him for months. If you see a silver lining in this situation please tell me what it is!!

    See - now you are futher down the road- knowing he got the check-

    That is something along with the receipt that you can turn into a postal investigator- and they will take action

    Postal Investagors are also in charge of internet fraud and crime- look them up in your federal building directory- forward copies off all of your emails and those receipts and delivery confirmation- and then after they get it- call them

    regards from Iowa

    I am providing an update on the situation with Mr. Harris. Mr. Harris has not answered any Emails nor has he sent the merchandise I paid for. Several people have provided information regarding the credibility of this individual and, needless to say, he has little. Mr. Harris also has other issues which I'm unable to discuss on this forum at this time. Under the circumstances it's advisable not to send Mr. Harris any money for anything he advertises as it's unlikely you'll receive anything in return.

    I've received the telephone number of the local police, his DOB, the type and color of his van and other pertinent information. I will be contacting the police and Postal authorities shortly and encourage them to resolve this issue. I will also provide periodic updates as we don't need this type of behavior or individual on this forum!!
