So first off i would like to say that "Ashley" has scammed three people that i know off of airsoftclassifieds.com and ASR. This is the link to people on ASC who have put up ads to warn other users. http://www.airsoftclassifieds.com/detail.php?cat=9&de=14239 http://www.airsoftclassifieds.com/detail.php?cat=9&de=14251
In my case i had a wanted ad for a M249 on ASC during the summer since i wanted to try out the whole support role without having to buy a brand new gun. Ashley messaged me asking what i had to offer, and although he was not looking for what i had to offer, i evened the deal with an aimpoint, m203 with shells, and mags and a m733. Ashley always kept in touch with me till the day that i shipped, and always was answering my questions. Ashley had also told me that he had been scammed earlier that month and after feeling bad for him i decided to put my trust into him and to ship first. WRONG. To avoid being scammed out of the whole deal i decided to ship the first package containing my mags, m203 and shells and my aimpoint. The agreement was then to ship the SAW and then i would ship the m733 after receiving it. He kept on delaying shipping it saying he had "work" and how he was busy. I would call his phone but he would never answer, and i actually had my friend call up and he picked up. When i called him immediately after my friend hung up, there was no response. Its been over 6 months and i have honestly given up, but i do not want to see anyone else get scammed out of their belongings. Sorry mods if this is in the wrong place, but ashley has scammed enough people and im tired of seeing him scam people. This is his ASR user. http://www.airsoftretreat.com/classifieds/member.php?uid=27107&protype=9
I had talked to the user with the positive experience and his story seemed fishy. Although that user sent money in an envelope(bad move on his part) ashley stated that he had never gotten it. Whether thats true or not i have no clue, but the fact that he has scammed 3+ people is unexceptable.
Also when i was on ASR back i had messaged a user called navysealsm4 about their p90 mags. I paid with a check promptly as they had told me to, and when the user said he shipped i asked for proof( such as a pic of receipt). He had said that he did not have one and said it should arrive otherwise he would give me a refund. Well no package and when i told him about it he said he would, and never sent me the money back. He then "blocked" me from AIM for 3 months. The package may infact been lost but the lack of proof to back up the fact that he had shipped it was kinda fishy...
Hopefully this helped people avoid being scammed. Also if you would like more info feel free to PM me.
