    I have no idea about a person of that name but I'd be suspicious as to whether the person you are dealing with is actually IN the Cayman Islands or just claiming to be.
    Just because they say they are in the Cayman Islands doesn't mean that's where they are.

    And I wouldn't be real quick to export something firearm related to the Cayman Islands without knowing both the laws AND the players.

    Still suspicious of the order.

    No not yet ... wants me to accept a "certified check" and send to a freight forwarder I believe this is a phishing scam. So going to just let his request drop and not respond
    responding would just cause further issues..

    Sounds to me like the check will be well in excess of the order amount, and he asks for a refund. Then when the check turns out to be bogus, you're left holding the bag for what you "refunded" to them.

    Tell him Paypal only.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    it sure sounds like a phishing scam to me....proceed with caution...and it sounds like you're already on top of it.

    Good call on your part.

    Don't tell him anything.

    Walk away, don't respond; just move on. There is NOTHING to be gained by continuing to communicate with that scammer and a lot to lose.

    Sounds like some of the offers I got when I sold my lathe and mill a few weeks ago.

    When I read the description of what the buyer was proposing I passed it through all my decision centers.
    The head said no.
    The heart said no.
    The gut said no.
    That's 3 strikes. He's outta here!

    Punch it in to the FBI fraud list. It will show if any frauds have been reported under that name.

    I get these all the time in my engraving business, I need 144 Cup/plates, etc with my name and birthdate. I'll send you a check for $100 more so you can have my forwarder paid by you out of my check.
