    Firearms Instructors Important Please Read

    Just today 2 firearms instructors one from Connecticut one from Illinois contacted me about a scam going on targeting you the firearms Trainers. Basically, there asking if they can get their daughter to get training from you.

    She lives in Sinapore, apparently they're getting email addresses from websites.

    Basically heres the senario I've gotton 2 times now.

    My daughter is coming from sinagapore seeking out training for pistols. Money is no option. We want private lessons, sending a false check, similiar to the nigerian scam.

    Once communication is established with the instructor they ask for the whole deposit money trick in your bank account.

    If you have a firearms training business or your email address is online be warned.

    I do not except direct deposits, that requires more information than is necessary for any student.

    She lives in Sinapore

    How/where/who did you get my name from would be one of the first questions under those circumstances.

    Thanks for the heads up on this, the more we get these types of 411's out the better.
