Who are

Scammers will ask for payment by insecure means such as Paypal (Friends and Family), Zelle, CashApp or even Bitcoin. They will refuse secure methods of payment such as cash in person or aims to disrupt these scammers by exposing their fake websites online so that you can learn to avoid them.

Non Delivery Scams like follow a simple format which allows the criminal to steal money from their victims in multiple ways.
The criminals will first create a website or online page from which they will “sell” their goods. They will often offer weapons for sale on gun forums.
The scammer will then introduce you to the secondary “shipping” website which will have been created by the scammer. These websites can be very professional and will allow you to log in to see your item being shipped.
The scammer can then charge you for multiple other items such as made up import permits, police fees, etc. Screenshot Screenshot
Is legit or a scam



The Sale: Scammers create professional looking websites or advertise on gun forums. They often offer weapons for low prices. No matter how scarce, they have multiple in stock.


The Shipping: Even though they have no intention of sending you anything, they will continue charging you more and more fees until you refuse to pay any more. Depending on what you are buying, they may then try to blackmail you. The shipping website they use will be another website they have created as part of the scam.


Payments: Paying for guns, accessories, and ammo online is difficult. All payment platforms like PayPal, Venmo, and Zelle prohibit these transactions. Criminals will refuse to use as an escrow service as it protects both buyers and sellers.

How can I help?

Scammers use bank accounts, Zelle accounts and other assorted payment types. Let us know the details and we will try and shut down their accounts.

Our goal is to gather as much information as possible about and the individuals behind it. By providing us with details about the criminals, we can create a comprehensive understanding of the scammer’s network and take steps to shut it down.

We welcome any information about the scammers, even if you haven’t lost any money. Disrupting their payment methods can have a greater impact on their operations than just shutting down a website, which can easily be recreated.

Protip: If the scammers provide you with bank account information, request that they use Bitcoin instead. If they offer a Zelle account, ask for a bank account to transfer the funds to. You can report multiple accounts to us for further investigation.

You should never give your banking information to these scammers.
