I posted a Wanted add, and had a response from this person. The whole thing is/was fishy to me. To the point that I suggested that I'd do the deal, but only if he/she sent me the gear, then I'd send payment. The emails are strange, and he/she sent pictures, but very small file size, which is suspicious. I'm a Group Member, so have access to the USPA membership database, this person has no record of USPA membership, my last email asked for his/her uspa number and license number. He/she indicated that he/she is a ebay user with a good ebay rating. So, I asked if he/she wanted to run the gear through ebay "No, I just want you to know that I'm a honest dealer." He/she almost had me when he/she promised that he/she was honest.

In general, if it smells like shit, don't take a taste to confirm one way or the other!
