Type of a scam Online Purchase
I contacted the ssgundeals.com website. I reached out via email to [email protected] to see if they had a p938 Sig Sauer Legion gun in stock. Despite all gun stores not stocking this type of gun (I haven’t found one yet) because of gun shortages, they stated it was in stock with a “yes” response. I ordered the gun and it stated to wait for a Zelle email with directions to transfer cash to the store. After not receiving the Zelle email, I contacted them via email listed above. They provide me with the following instructions,
“ First thing is, since zelle flags gun deals, never mention guns or gun names on zelle and once you make payments, send a screenshot so we can print out and attach to your order
Name on zelle… Mac R
Zelle Email.. [email protected]
Send a payment screenshot here to me so i can print out.”
As a result, I asked the following,
“ Thank you for your email. However, how can I be sure this is not a scam? I searched better business bureau and could not find your business name. In addition, I could not find a contact number or address for your business. Sorry for the skepticism, but I don’t want to randomly send out money. Thank you for your understanding.”. They responded with the following,
“ We don’t fraud here. If that is your fear”
As a result, I never sent money via Zelle.
Thank you for you time and consideration in following up with this matter.
