A $3500 riser? I'd like more details, not on the scammer and his naive buyer, but on the riser. Embedded with ivory, turquoise and gold flecks? Carved from mammoth tusk?

Some of those early Bear takedowns are rather rare and have been going up in price. When folks see what big dollars they are bringing, it's tempting to try something foolish.

It pays to know the merchandise, but sometimes it's better to know the seller.

Pcg. It was a stickbowman signed type 1 a riser. It had holes and buyer was not happy, nor could he obtain a refund from seller. It's not uncommon for such an item to bring that kind of money in nice shape. I know this because I purchased one in April, and know the sale price on a few others. The people that Terry is mentioning Will more than likely be at Denton Hill. Look over every purchase carefully. Just a word to the wise.

keep in mind, anything over $400 is a felony, do not go to the police, go and report it to your Sheriff dept.. it's amazing how fast things are settled when the Sheriff dispatch a Deputy to pay a personal visit to the perb at their house.

Bongo,
You have a good point. I once had to contact a Sheriff department in MN. I bought a bow, and the guy cashed the money order. He left his wife, and the bow behind. The department knew this guy and his wife. ;o) I got my bow after numerous phone calls, excuses, and a visit from the Sheriff. I am still very grateful to the department for all of their efforts, and help.

What on earth makes a riser worth $3500? Gold inlay? Diamond arrow plate?

Bear only made a few hundred A-1 risers back around 1970. Then you find one that Fred personally signed and it's like new... [Not Worthy]

...except for a drilled hole or two the buyer forgot to mention... [knothead]

I'm now hearing I might get sued....and even punched in the face....

Also found out a guy that got banned once before for breaking the rules wrote me and Rob D a nice LONG note wanting back on and apologizing and we let him back on ....now showing his true colors by joining in on the grade school antics of those are bashing us for looking out for our membership.

Its really sad to see the types of writings, from our so called 'ranks' that I'm seeing from grown men.....who only know how to name call and make physical internet threats. I mean really, all this name calling??? Name calling is the lowest form of intellect.

Anyhow, we are just trying to look out for our members that actually get what TradGang is about the best we can.

Hey....if they are bashing me, they are just giving someone else a break. [campfire]
