Who are Opticsdepotusa.com

Fake gun and ammunition scammers are posing as online retail storefronts and aiming to steal your cash and personal information with too-good-to-be-true ammo deals and offers. 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 GunTab.com

GunScams.com aims to disrupt these scammers by exposing their fake websites online so that you can learn to avoid them.

Non Delivery Scams like Opticsdepotusa.com 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.

Is usaczgunshop.com 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 GunTab.com 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 Opticsdepotusa.com 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.

Phone Manner

A genuine seller will use a phone number that is often published on their website. Scammers use multiple phone numbers to call, text or Whatsapp. Scammers phone manner will also be very vague as they don’t know which type of scam you are responding to!


Reverse Image

These scammers are not actually selling anything. They need to steal the photos online so as to appear that they actually have a gun for sale. Sometimes you can find the images they are using have been previously used. Sometimes even years before.
You can check if images have been previously used by using Google Image Search or Yandex Image search.


Payment Types

As usual, if it sounds good to be true, it is.
The prices on Opticsdepotusa.com are too good to be true. Payment will be demanded using wire transfer or a peer to peer payment such as Zelle or CashApp. They may even ask by payment by Bitcoin or gift cards!. Some scammers use bank accounts of a money mule.When buying or selling guns, accessories, or ammo online you should protect yourself by using an escrow service such as GunTab.com.
You can report payment types here

If you ask for a simple video chat over the phone so you can inspect the licence in real time, the scammer will refuse.
