Steamfirearms.com - Non Delivery Scam

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 Steamfirearms.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.

The Sale Scammers create professional looking websites or advertise on gun forums. They often offer weapons for low prices.
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.
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.
