$16,000,000 in a CHECKING ACCOUNT???????????
« on: December 26, 2017, 10:35:14 AM »
I sold a R9 to guy and asked for Certified check, or M.O. Instead he sends me a PERSONAL CHECK. NO mailing address and NO FFL info. After 2 weeks I go to bank to make sure check is good. My bank calls Wells Fargo to confirm all is in order. Wells Fargo refuses to give this info, I have other banks that have helped in this kind of matter 12-15 times.

I called seller, he gets mad and says "I HAVE $16,000,000 IN THAT ACCOUNT. SHOVE THE GUN UP YOUR ASS."  He then calls back and wants to make nice.

A) Who has $16,000,000 in a checking account?

B) Would you deal with someone that rude?

C) It's a R9. The market isn't going to collapse on them.

D) I don't need the money. I am simply selling a few things to make it easier on the Executor of my will.

Possibly sounds like a scam, especially with no return address or FFL. Just let him know that you are not comfortable with the sale. Tell him you are going to kindly mail the check back to him if he would like to offer up his mailing address and wish him on his way.

That is what I was thinking I just needed someone else to say that.

Yep, send it back and as we say in Brooklyn. . . . . . "Forget about it".

Better safe than sorry. Hate that this kind of ineptitude or deceit (whichever it may be is not your problem) goes on.
