To all,

We are re-posting the below message because someone has been scammed by someone impersonating us.  In short, we do not send out unsolicited emails and never ask for payment to be sent to anyone but us at our premise address in Dayton, Ohio.  ALWAYS feel free to pick up the phone and verify who you are talking with.  We live in an age of scammers and we want you to call us before sending out any money! You can can call me direct at (937) 470-7466. 

Please note that someone is trying to impersonate Inverse Inc. buy using an email similar to ours.  This scammer emails you once you publicly post your contact information under our ad(s) or the ads of others selling on this site.  The fictitious email being used in our case is inversefiream@gmail.com.  Our legitimate email is inversefirearms@gmail.com.  They are very similar but different; note the missing "s" in "firearms".  Please be careful with all your transactions and make sure the person corresponding with you is who you think they are by verifying emails, addresses, phone numbers, etc..  Make sure the email used to send you information is from the person you think you are dealing with.

We ask that you do not post under our ads, please just contact us directly.  

Thanks,

Trent Warncke, President

Bottom line, it is not a good idea to post your e-mail address in a reply to an ad.  Here are some reasons:

  • It signals your intent to a potential scammer - They know exactly what you want, and where to send you their request for payment
  • They may appear to have a similar address to the person who posted the ad...Just think about how easy it is to get a free, customized e-mail address - This can be done anywhere in the world
  • It's poor etiquette...You should be reaching out to the seller, not asking them to contact you
  • You should contact the seller using the PM feature, or through their e-mail address directly, without posting your e-mail in a reply to their original ad for all to see

A buyer should always speak to the seller.  Vet them out.  Be appropriately cautious before you send out hundreds, or thousands of dollars.  Never wire money...Never, ever.  Do not send funds via Moneygram.  Once you speak to the person, and are comfortable that they do not appear to be a scammer, check their address and contact information.  Check their FFL address against the ATF database.  Check their address on Google Street View, and see if it appears valid.  Visit them, and see the gun in person, especially if it's very expensive.  If the deal is too good, or anything doesn't feel right, walk away.  Don't get greedy.  If the deal is too good, there's a problem.

Recently scammed by "Midyett120" and his side kick " robertsonjack069@gmail.com "

Do not deal with these scum bags. Midyett120 replied to me via PM on an ad I placed for G17 slide. He referred me to the email above.

The rest is history as they say. No emails no replies.

Austin3 and his friend tommieherbert27@gmail.com are scammers. Got a DM from Austin3 in regard to a WTB post I put up for a Max11k. Austin3 told me to contact that email to Tommie in Michigan who has one for sale. Currently exchanging emails, but let’s just say it’s an obvious scam.

 sjolly3307@gmail.com ( Samuel Jolly Zelle ID # USA0D134B7CB )  Is a scammer also.   
Contacted me after I asked a price on an item for sale here.... I sent money via zelle and then he disappeared. 

There seems to be a lot of scammers out there now.  
They contact people that show interest in an item for sale.

I posted a WTB add and received a message from New member "david33". He said to contact someone at 'michellesutter966@gmail.com who had what I wanted.  I made contact and asked for a picture.  What I received was a cropped picture originally posted by member "BDMERC".....  and a too good to be true price.

michellesutter966@gmail.com gave me a phone number and address of St James, MO (trailer park)...   He wanted to be paid via Zelle. I think this be a scam.
