LOL ..... Well, as long as you want to keep things going ..... its simple ... husband bid $1988 ... what he was willing to pay for the rifle giving the condition .... then while husband was out of town ... wife saw the bid .. and thought the husband wanted it. ... so she bid at the end (using his account) to buy it for him as a Valentines Day gift .... husband said "thank"s ... when I was told about the purchase ... I chimed in on various forums to warn others about the Fraudulent seller ... no problem ... If you think he's an OK seller ... feel free to buy from him .... maybe you can be the next Negative in his feedback.

Even though I didn't want to buy it ... I like to tag auction items with a bid rather than adding to a watch list ... believe me ... If I wanted to add it to "my" collection .. "I" would have bought it ..

There is way to much BS and self promotion on both sides of this story. A blind man (or woman) could have seen to avoid the seller in question. If the story is as you said, then I feel for the lady, but the fact that she exceeded her husbands max bid shows a lack of trust in his judgment of firearms and how best to spend the family finances.

You have done your duty and informed the three people in the world that didn't already know, that the seller in question is questionable at best. I think we can let it go now.

I wish I could have warned the other 40 who left NEGATIVES that didn't know.

So I bid $1900 for a gun, maybe my high limit and my wife buys the gun for $5000 plus while I am out of town??? One thing is for sure, I will never go out of town again unless my wife is with me or the computer is disabled.

There are a few things to learn from this:

1. The good point on red flag-NO RETURN
2. Communicate with your wife
3. If it looks too good to be true...or too $$$.

I no longer buy guns on auctions, but I will contact the seller privately-
especially if he is like Leroy Merz in MN. Or of excellent similar character.

Well, the fraudulent seller just got another NEGATIVE from a guy that paid about $3,500 for a Luger that was faked.

But the fraudulent seller is still selling on Gunbroker. Gunbroker has done nothing to stop him.

What's fake about the Luger? I don't know a thing about them.

I see he has several more items with the same over-hyped salesmanship. Are they all crooked?

Read the last negative comment from the buyer. Most likely.
