Hi Unloader, I, too, just recieved an e-mail from a Kristi Jarrett from somewhere in Texas. Wanted to sell me a Timney release trigger and an Anton stock for an 1100. I asked for photos and the ones she sent me were for a factory 1100 stock, just like the one on my 1100 now! She wanted $650.00 delivered. I told her that her item, the Anton stock was not Anton. Also had a response from Great Britin for the same items, same money. Asked for photos, never heard from him again. Wanted money from Western Union. Let the buyer beware. Well advised to not buy! There are many sellers on TS whose reputations are beyond question. I have never had a problem and the items are at least as good as or better than represented. Stu
Gary, I got a response from "her" when I posted looking for a KelTec Sub2000. By email, not on here. I asked for the serial number, her ts.com name, when she bought it, etc. 5 days later I got a generic response, a copy of the specs listing all the calibers, etc. She said to respond right away if I wanted it. I said I already bought one and reported it as spam. I would steer a wide berth if I were you. Harv Shell. ps, thanks for the great bore gauge.
She tried to rip me off offering a Perazzi trigger at a to-good-to-be-true price. I didn't fall for it but she caused me to miss out on another by a real TS.com poster. This is why we can't post our email address. Go get her, Whiz! Thanks, Brad.
She could be the same as the one who sent me a bogus $5000 check on GB. She went by Janet Stockman from the Ft Worth area. Son Kenneth Stockman was the actual bidder. I tracked her as well as the Ft Worth Police did also and she changed names several times. That was two years ago or more. When I contacted the police they knew the name and had been looking for her
If they can't answer you through a PM on TS.com, and it is only a response that is directly to your email, DON"T DO IT! Make sure you get a phone number, and speak to the seller. Do not post your email!

I got this offer to buy the other day from a John Scorie.
I've never done PayPal before. What would happen if I did send info?
Am ok with the price and the condition, am buying it for my holiday because i’ll be coming home soon from our site as am into forest management and presently on the Forrest. i won’t be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work, i would have love to call in person but we have call restriction here due to bad weather condition and our satellite server has been down. i will be paying you through PayPal, pls get back to me with your PayPal details so i can proceed with the payment and once payment has been made i have a pickup agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it to my place. kindly end auction on site
