General Internet Fraud Awareness and Firearms Canada Etiquette

Announcement May 11, 2017

General Internet Fraud Awareness and Firearms Canada Etiquette 

Always follow all laws and regulations.  A legitimate buyer or seller will not ask you to circumvent the law, the sties rules, or your personal sense of right and wrong.  Remember, you are legally required to verify the legitimacy of a buyer or sellers firearms licence.  Use the Canadian Firearms Program hotline to initiate transfers, or ask any questions you may have about firearms laws.  It is recommended that the verification of the other persons firearms licence be done before any money is exchanged.

Trust your gut instincts.  If a deal is too good to be true, it very well may be.  If the user you are dealing with does not communicate in a way that you would normally feel comfortable communicating in person, this should raise warning flags.

Help keep the site safe for others. Report suspicious or fraudulent activity IMMEDIATELY!

Never publicly disseminate your personal information.  Your phone number, email address, mailing address and other personal information should only be transmitted though the private messaging system.

Always review the users feedback.  While feedback can not be relied upon alone, it can give a better understanding of the users past performance.

Wanted ads can be a target for scammers who would take advantage of your sense of urgency.  Protect yourself by requesting unique pictures of the item in question, perhaps with other household items of your choosing or next to the users computer screen displaying their account profile to minimize the chance that you are being shown a generic image from the internet.

There are online tools that you can use such as Tin Eye or Google Images to reverse search an image to help determine if a picture is unique or taken from somewhere else on the internet.

When posting or privately sending pictures, be sure to remove the EXIF data which may contain personal information such as location where the picture was taken.

Always set clear rules for the transaction to be complete.  The condition of the item, how and when monies will be paid and how and when the item will be exchanged need to be mutually agreed upon before closing the deal.

Do not respond to solicitations made outside of the Firearms Canada private messaging system.
