I remember Henry sharing photos of this 94 short rifle on the forum.  Even has one of his description cards in the photos.  Is this another fraudulent listing?

That is Henry’s 94 (serial #879637). He specifically identified it by serial number in a Forum post on December 13,2019. But, someone else has it for sale on gunbroker. What a mess!

Hopefully this will be stopped, how can people blatantly get away with this in the US ? I thought your laws and sentences where robust 

Henry much be livid. He’s a very good person to deal with.

If you think that, it’s obvious British TV didn’t cover the months of rioting, arson, looting, destruction of public property, that occurred here last year while cops stood & watched, if they weren’t ordered to stay away altogether.

  The first step in stopping fraudulent listings is exposing them, making the buyers aware of it. The Forum is a great place to start, thanks to all that have posted I know and many readers do to. Thanks Don for the heads up. T/R

Everything this fraud has listed is on a different background.

British Tv is obsessed with Prince Harry and Meg  ! 
Have no idea why, I’m glad he’s gone !

Did anyone notice the yellow report a fraud section just beneath the bidding section on the Gunbroker listing?  I’ve never seen this on a listing before.  I’ve clicked on it about 10 times now.  Not sure if it’s doing any good, but everyone on this forum should do the same.

I noticed the listing yesterday and figured it was Henry’s gun.  I’ve seen the yellow fraudulent banner before for other listings. I’ll have to click and see what happens.

The yellow box doesn’t link to the correct report location.  To report a fraud, you fill out a form : Submit a request – GunBroker

I have submitted one, but like Armslist, it takes more than that to get it removed.

Sure wish I could contact “Banjo Jim”…  I filed a fraud report on two of the firearms listed by the seller to no avail….  Winchester 21 Deluxe 20 gauge – Other Shotguns at GunBroker.com : 901216857

I see the guy that sold Jim the 21, and listed Henry’s 94 is no longer registered user.

GB’s fraudulent reporting sucks.  My support request is still unanswered and status is open.  11 days since I opened it and 7 days since I last added to it.  I know GB doesn’t particularly care about folks getting ripped off but for a fraudulent listing report to go unanswered really shows that.

Not as long as they get their cut of the rip-off!
