Legit vendor?


Recommended Posts

If they don't take VISA, I wouldn't deal with them on line.

 

According to my McAfee software, this is listed as a Highly Risky site.

Why would a business in Mobile Alabama have a Northern California area code for their business phone?


Here’s the building at their address.

You’re very welcome. 
 

Here is what I do when I encounter a questionable site or any new site.

1. Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the trademark symbols of credit cards. If they are there that is a good sign. 
If not, that’s usually the first indication of a scam site.

2. Regardless if the credit card icons are there or not I go to their “Contact” or “Contact Us” and click on that. If they have no address listed that’s another red flag. 
 

3. If they do have an address listed I copy it then paste in my DDG search bar and see what comes up. Often if it’s business the name of the business will appear in a search link. If the address is a residential address you will see listings pop up on Realtor.com, Zillow.com or other realty sites. 
I don’t use anything “Google” if I can help it, but use Google’s Street View tells a very big story. Since I won’t use Google I rely on realtor’s sites to utilize their Google street view through DuckDuckGo and therefore no Google tracking. 
 

4. The final piece is the phone number. If the area code doesn’t match the address it’s definitely a sign that something is fishy. 
 

Another asset we have is AmmoSeek.com

https://ammoseek.com/
Go to their site and type whatever ammo your looking for in the search box. 
A list will appear showing prices, quantities, etc.

Go to the bottom of page and click “Modify Search”

A window will open giving you the options “Caliber”, “Brand”, “Grains”, and Key Words.

Click on brand and search for the questionable vendor.

NO HUNTSMAN SHOP HERE:

I then hit “Return” and type Huntsman Shop in “Match these words in a search”.

Now we have definitive evidence that Huntsman Shop are scummy scummy scammers. :D
