I had a pop-up ad show on my browser a few days ago. It looked like a legitimate site. Hogdenretailstore. It had Varget listed for $41.99 a pound so I put an 8lber in my cart. It offered payment by zelle, and a few other non-traditional payments. There is a chat that pops up with Mauris as the moderator. I asked about credit card for purchase and he replied sure, just type in your cc info. So I couldn't find anything that looked fishy with the site, it is on https etc. He replied that my card had been denied. I thought maybe this was due to the new credit card rules on firearms accessories purchases. I didn't think much about it until last night Capitol One advises me they had declined a charge for $738.50 to fiverr. I call and sure enough here is a charge to shopify for $0 that was declined and then the charge to fiverr.

First time I have been skimmed by such a very legitimate looking site. Capitol One had locked the account down and is issuing a new card.

    DFW
    Incorrect spelled name
    Zelle only
    Unsecure credit card check out
    You literally typed out your credit card into a chat box

    Next you are going to tell us how you paid the IRS or the Microsoft refund department in Gift cards.

    Saw the same thing last week purporting to be affiliated with IMR - something like IMRRetailStore.com. I just checked, looks like it has been suspended.

    I can't believe that there people so stupid that they fall for this crap in this day and age.

    Every time I see one of these threads this is what I imagine is going on:

    They are everywhere. Just this week, I spoke to a guy who’s sent $317k to his “wife” who’s being held captive in South America with their son. He’s sending money for her release.

    It’s been going on almost a year, their baby is 9mos old, and they met on Facebook.

    They’ve never been face to face and they have a baby together….

    I suggest disabling Notifications in your browser(s). They are this era's pop-ups and what is worse appear to come from the OS and be "legit" to those who don't know what they are. I see plenty victimized by "infection alerts" that appear to come from Defender but are a scam notification that came from some random site they were browsing.

    Firefox is the only one that allows you to block everything by default but what you allow (Example; webmail or online calendar notifications).
    Chrome, Edge and everything based on Chromium are block everything with no exceptions or the never ending whack-a-mole of blocking individual sites.

    I knew I would get many assholish remarks. I was doing a search for varget powder. Hodgden was spelled properly. The only issue was the payment plan. Varget at $42 a lb, I wasn't worried about Capitol One sorting it out. Poors gotta go poor.

    Ok Boomer.
    I hate that you feel that way, but I would like to express my sincere appreciation to you, for posting an entertaining thread at your expense.

    Don't be mad.
    I would like to give you some advice if I may.
    If you fuck a goat, its not necessary to confess that sin.
    In a vein of solidarity, I will share something I've never told. I dont have to tell it, and someone will likely give me shit for it, some asshole like myself. But hey, assholes gotta asshole, man.

    Back about 4 months ago. I started using my fuckbook page again after a 6 year hiatus. I was just trying to shit post my account into oblivion, but thats another story.

    So there is a site selling walking liberty half dollars for 9 bucks each. Pay with PayPal. Looked legit as fuck.
    "Hell yeah! Send me 10!"

    Went through PayPal, checked out shopping cart, all good.
    Get my receipt, and I have sent my money to Wong Long Po and the rest of the info was in that Chinese sanskrit. I'm sitting on my couch with wife watching TV or something.
    Upon seeing the name and sanskrit:
    Me: "SHIT! I just got fucked out of a hundred bucks! Fuckhelldamnshit! FUUUUCK!"
    Wife: "What are you screaming about?"
    Me: "I just gave a shellcracker to a scamming chinaman on farcebook!"
    Wife: "Don't you know not to buy crap on facebook?"
    Me:".......uhm.....no..."
    Wife: "Please tell me you didn't use our bank card."
    Me: "Hey, I'm not that stupid."
    Wife:
    dr-evil-oh-sure.gif


    Me: "I paid with Paypal."
    Wife: "File a claim, get your money back.

    I filed a claim, got my money back in about 4 days.

    I told him it was a common scam and he’d never get the money back. He wasn’t worried about the money at all, just the baby. He said, “I’m almost sixty, it’s time to be a grandpa.”

    I told him I thought we were talking about his wife and child and asked if it was instead his daughter and grandson. He said, “nope, my wife and son. Ready for them to be home so I can be PawPaw.”

    I didn’t ask any other questions.

    And with those deductive reasoning skills, you’re gonna stay poor. A fool and his money is easily parted.

    I'm going to fess up and admit that I fell for the "your wife is being held for ransom" scam. I immediately went out and empty our savings account, buying three of my grail guns, a new pick-up, then spending the rest of the day with four of the finest hookers money could buy. It was only when I finally made it home and saw the bitch's car in the driveway did I realize that I'd been had.

    Maybe you should be buying English spelling, grammar, and writing lessons instead.

    Not to take away from a good comedy thread but I’m pretty sure that Hodgdon has their prices that way specifically to undercut the gunbroker resellers without hurting their own dealer network.

    How many fucking times do we have to go over this......fuck.....

    And there it is in a nutshell.

    The OP feels that those who are critical of him are “assholes” while those who are critical of him think he’s a blithering, unteachable, idiot.

    There has been an assertion there are assholes running mucky in this thread.
    I disagree. Not one asshole has give me a rash of shit for thinking I could buy cheap silver coins.
    Ok, sure, after the fact I did realize how stupid that was...but....
    If there were many assholes around, ida had at least a grazing kick in the nuts by now.
