    Default Ebay bow scam warning....

    I just got an email to be aware of a seller that says he's from china..but isn't.They think he's from France or poland and goe's by the name of "howlingfangs".He been selling mathews switchbacks,bow tech's and browning illussions for 300/400$ buy it now and states that he doesn't except paypal...only westeren union,money gram or wire transferes.States that if you send any of these....your money is gone.As soon as he's noticed...he uses a new handle.Please be careful of this person that changes his name often....but is often related with China bows.You might want to check if some one in the free classifieds here or on archerytalk has a bow/brand"above" for sell at a cheap price....Be careful.

    no...probably not, it would take an extra moronic one, you got intl. shipping, dollars to euro's or francs and NO recourse.

    That is kind of his plan there skippy. Its actually not just bows. Its a HUGE business, more then likely the guy behind the accounts is in Nigeria (over 1/2 of their NGP is from fraud and they have no rules about it)

    Plus in case you forgot Ebay is pretty big in Europe too and LOTS of people buy stuff from there and ship it over here. a 400.00 switchback + shipping to the US is still only 500.00
    No I'm not dead

    I don't think of buyer's as Morons....the united states has their share of scam artists also.What person would buy a bow from over seas?.......someone who thought they were getting a new bow at a good price......but got scamed by an hole....What,you never made a freaking mistake before.
