Word of caution. Be sure to create an account for every major shipping company online before someone else does. One method of confirmation is for the shipping company to snail mail you a pin number to confirm your account. If this pin number is created and intercepted by someone else they can forward packages to another address. As a seller on ebay one of my buyers had their package intercepted and forwarded to PA. Apparently this has been going on for a few years in connection to Philadelphia. If you see any of your packages being forwarded get in touch with your carrier immediately.
For USPS you can create an account and get daily emails of the mail that is coming to your house. I found that it does not always come the same day but this would help track things and catch a forwarding scam early.
They only allow payment in Bitcoin...MAJOR RED FLAG. Guaranteed scam site. Stay away. Poor grammar in the text as well--another tipoff.
Mailing handguns directly to your address?
$700 Berretta 84FS? Black market online gun store?
Sounds like a scam to me.
Definitely a SCAM operation.
https://springfieldcore.com/ They only take Zelle payments.
@Scout21 is that domain aeammo? Well that site is only 7 months old and has domain privacy on. And I have been researching scam firearm sites and think they are now making forms that take credit cards because we all have been saying don't trust zelle, venmo cryto for 2 years. I would not touch that.
Yes, it's www.aeammo.com. I don't think I'll be buying from them. It at first seemed legitimate because most of their products seemed to be priced in line with the rest of the market, with the exception of some cheap Norma Whitetail .308 ammo that was on sale. The Norma stuff is what pulled me in.
The physical address not matching up is what is really putting me off. I'm gonna pass.
How were you able to view the age of the IP?
@Scout21 You can check the age of any domain by doing a whois search. Most domain registars let you do them free:
See how above is 6 months old and privacy is on?
Also the domain name does not match the logo name. They sometimes do this to confuse people and there is some history with the name AE Armory:
The first 2 FFLs on that page are expired. The third one is not but it is issued to "AE Armory" in IL.
Notice how aeammo.com site has no About Us or Social Media Links.
I know I am new here but this looks like a scam. I have reported hundreds on other forums. Literally Hundreds.
If you put a gun in your cart the FFL field seems broken. Enter a zip and it does not get any close to you.
Their inventory is not real time as you can say you want 1000 boxes of that 308 and it says it is fine.
They are listed in Ammoseek which confuses me.
Why don't you call or email them and ask them for their FFL number? Or ask if they have this ammo or are going to dropship it?
You can get Norma Whitetail .308 direct from Norma Shooting and free shipping on 2 or more boxes right now:
I cannot see any record of anyone purchasing from aeammo.com and getting products. Be Afraid and I would not trust my CC to that 6 month old site.
Is a SCAM.
Found a Reddit thread with the apparent owner participating.
https://tactical-nation.net/ smells funny to me. First thing that popped up was 50 count of 35Rem brass is $11. Then says $100 is a minimum order. Lots of spelling mistakes just further sinches the smell bad test.
Heres what comes up when you google its address:
He has often called victims, sometimes just in time to warn them about what is happening. Even for those of us who are generally familiar with their tricks, some of the methods are subtle and quite clever.
* Watching some of his videos has been as educational as anything else I've read about.
At --- 8:25 ---you see the semi-blurred faces of Indian scammers - from their own office in India! Some of the gun scams must also originate over there.
