Loyal Ammo Supply (https://loyalammoshop.com/) is a scam/fraud web site. The site has all the looks and feel of a real merchant. Once you place an order, they will email you the completed order form. Next, an online salesman will contact you to complete the order. They will indicate that they only accept payment through an online transfer. I have done this before when a business does not accept credit cards, so no red flags at this point. The account is given as an email address, which is email@example.com Once that is complete, they ask you to send them a copy of the transaction, and the shipping information will be sent.
Pretty slick. It has the look and feel of a real web site. I admit it was nicely designed with all the bells and whistles of a normal vendor site.
When I did not receive the shipping instructions, I started to research the company. I found that others have posted on various web sites that this is a scam. When I looked up their address on Google it was for a “The Ticket Clinic” which is a law firm.
I have contacted my bank and they are launching an investigation. I do not to alert Loyal Ammo Supply until this investigation is complete. So I would appreciate it if you do not contact them during the investigation.
Personally, I would like to offer them some ammo that I have.
@Richard298 >> found one a while back and, I almost went for it. The first red flag was gun powder, primers, and amo at below price. When I started doing some checking none of the information checked out.
When the IRS scams first started I came very close to getting snagged.
PS: 2 days ago I got a call from customers border patrol telling me they
Confiscated a package with my name and address containing a large amount of money and contraband. When I asked how I could get my money back they hung up.
No CC, no sale for this guy…having enough issues with reputable shops these days, and the folks at Discover refund my money first thing, and let the vendor fix the issue. One guy asked why I filed a complaint first thing. I said “why should you have my money while you fix your screwup?”
Saw ammo for a relatively low price at one place, lots of variety and stock as well. Total BS, and you’ll find the guys change their web address pretty often in general.
Google Earth the physical address, and sometimes you’ll find storefronts with every car having a licence plate from a different state. The place I found had such good prices that the parking lot was full of trucks from Alaska, despite the store being in the lower 48
I usually don’t answer calls that say it’s from a city and my phone has spam alerts too. But now and again I like to answer one just to eat up their time. The first one I use is, as soon I’m asked my name I go into:
PRAISE Jesus, he’s sent me another heathen to preach the word of god to. Almost an immediate hang up.
The second is:
This is monkey. I can only talk to other monkeys and monkeys go ooh, ooh, ooh. Can you go ooh, ooh, ooh?
If by chance one actually does say it I plan to say: no you’re an idiot and doesn’t talk to idiots. Then hang up.
There are so many “intelligent” robo-calls these days that I was caught by one of these.
I answered local call and after saying “Hello” I heard: – Hi, this is Mike from local sheriff’s department…
What he told next wasn’t important… the thing is that this machine (I took me over 1 minute to figure it out he is not a real person) spoke with me like human…
First time I just hung up, but this thing kept calling me everyday from different local numbers.
Few days ago I was really pissed off and told to my phone : F#^k you Mike.
Mike answered: OK, I will put you on Do-Not-Call list, Thank you and good bye.
Wow… I didn’t think it was so easy to get rid of this thing.
A robo dialer just called me regarding my car’s extended warranty. I figured they have already wasted my time, so I pressed 1 to waste the time of one of their representatives. Some woman I had a hard time understanding came on the line to help me. She asked for the year, make, and model of my vehicle. I told her I have a 1960 Ford Falcon with the 144 cubic inch in-line six-cylinder. She plainly said “what!”, so I repeated myself. She asked if I had any other vehicles. I replied “yes, I also have a 1955 Chevrolet Short bed Pickup Truck, but it is the 1955 Series 1, not the Series 2 they released later that year". She asked me if I owned any vehicles that … beyond that point in the sentence I couldn’t understand a darn thing she said. It sounded kind of like, “in a bottle”. So I told her I did not keep any of my vehicles in a bottle, and not only that, I don’t know anyone that does, nor how they would even get it in the bottle. She repeated the question and it sounded the same, so I rambled off asking her where I might shop for a bottle to put my vehicle in and would getting it in and out of the bottle be easier or harder than pulling in and out of my garage – she hung up on me. Only time will tell if I was successful in getting my number taken off their list.
Edit: Hopfully they keep me on the list so I can find out how much to extend the warranty on my 1974 Mustang II. I can share how much of a POS it has been all this time, and has cost me a fortune to keep it on the road, so I could really use some financial assistance to keep it running
Edit2: My wife just told me “model” rhymes with “bottle”, so she was probably hoping I had a “newer model”.
I like wasting their time too. Say Tesla and they don’t want to talk to you. Told them I had the following cars:
1964 1/2 Ford Galaxie SS 427 dual Quad
1965 Cobra 427
1909 Detroit Electric
Every time they ask if I have a different car I tell them “why would one want to drive anything else?”
If your car is plausible they will transfer you to a salesperson. I found this out one day when I told them I owned a 2017 Tahoe 4wd with the 6.2 engine. Got transferred to the sales agent, he asked how many miles on it told him 72K. He started asking then how does it run? Told him “the Supercharger is leaking a little oil and I think it has rod knock. Will your warranty fix that?”
The sales guy immediately said “no” and hung up.
If you are calling from a spoofed number your product has to be crud, also they keep on calling. If I have some time why not have some fun?
