*Consumer Comment: ATF should be shutting these scammers down
I have never ordered a handgun online before so this was my 1st order and attempt.
I live in CA so they have a restricted list of handguns and revolvers. The gun I ordered from them was not on the CA approved list. They said they could get me the gun anyway and that it wasn't a problem.
I placed an order on the 10th of January and they said that they have to use Zelle to make the payment. I foolishly Zelle'd them the $560 for my handgun. I waited about 5 days and still no shipment info. I followed up to find out what the heck is going on and they were not very responsive when I was asking them for tracking info so I can tell the FFL they were shipping it to when to expect it.
When I found out the FFL I was shipping to told me that they are not doing FFL orders right now due to covid, I followed up with this phony company to let them know I need to change the address. They said no worries, we'll go ahead and change that for you.
I still got no updated email or anything. I started looking into this domain name in the whois records and found that they just opened it up in October 2020 and is only registered for 1 year.
I called the phone number to reach out and it is just a google voice number and when I looked up the person's name on Google it came up with someone's phony name in a Facebook profile of some dude in Africa.
I have come to realize that I have been duped and lost $560. I have reported this company to the ATF since they are posing illegally to sell firearms online in the US.
I hope this helps anyone who might be thinking the same thing as me.
