It’s a supply and demand thing.
Whenever there’s heightened demand for a product — any product — and a limited supply, the scammers swoop in.
Because of the ammunition shortage, conmen are now targeting unsuspecting gun owners via Facebook Messenger and other social media platforms.
They’re offering fantastic deals, such as $35 for a brick of 1,000 small rifle primers, and $467 for a case of 55gr Remington 5.56.
Man, if only it were true.
They’ll take your money via PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Zelle.
The only problem is the ammo and primers don’t exist.
