Well it's unfortunate but the unethical types have found the site and there has been multiple attempts to Scam members through the private message system.

As always use your best judgement when buying or selling anything on the internet!! Pictures are a start. Pictures with a note referencing RDP? Pick up in person. Escrow services if necesarry.

I'm old school, I prefer cash and carry.. and "I'll come and pick it up if necessary". The "RDP EXPRESS" is surprisingly effective and we have members nationwide (and hell even international) that will go and inspect an item, and even pick it up and ship it for other members..

Don't get scammed!

If you think something is suspicious, please inform me so that I can remove or ban the account!

As always I am available by phone for the members as well if you want me to take a look at something suspicious. That said I'm not responsible for any transaction that takes place on or off this site!

OK, the dude asking to get into the gun section with only 2 posts was suspicious!

😁 😁 😁
The lurkers that have been on rdp and hell even other forums outrank the posters something like 750 : 1 . I know plenty of guys that read and don't post.. Like my neighbor Pat Deenan, he's only posted once or twice on here. My old neighbors in the keys are all lurkers on here.

When I goto events I meet 100's of people that tell me it's their morning coffee and their evening entertainment before they goto bed. I ask them why don't they post, and some are intimidated. Some just don't type well, and others want to maintain privacy.. While others yet come out of the background and post.

I ask those with low or zero post counts to text me a pic of their gun safe / open with RDSUX on a note.. then include the screen name in the text. It's been pretty effective of weeding out the dill weeds.

Have you considered X number of posting before PM is allowed or is that a bigger problem?

Not trying to be a dick but dude, the instructions are literally in the post before yours.
Thanks I did see that but didn't want to bug RD especially via text if there was someone else that was handling it.

I got a weird spam email today

One of the typical " we have you on video watching porn and you need to send us bitcoin blah blah blah "

The odd thing is they claimed to have my password which they did have about 99% of the password and said they first followed my browser from "RDP"

I did not visit a porn site and my laptop camera always has tape over it so I just laughed but someone had info :oops:
