You receive an unsolicited message from an EBay member on an item (CompM4) you purchased months ago.

"On your Brand new sight reflex (#2604242XXXXXXX), I bought one from the same seller and just found out that it's stolen military. Having Army CID show up at your front door and taking your sight is not a fun experience. I would call Aimpoint and describe all the contents of what your received to see if its stolen. I just don't want you to be out all that money.

Hunker down and wait for further developments or take the advice? What say the hive? [://

I don't want the money back and would probably have to file with EBay to get a refund. I'm not interested in shafting the military either.

I would like to keep the item.....let sleeping dogs lie...or ask questions?

If Army CID is at the point where they're contacting purchasers, the seller is most likely not in a position to be able to issue a refund.

Are you sure you actually received the item? Maybe you didn't. Stuff gets lost in the mail all the time.

They will get in touch with you if they want to. I bought a laser off the EE several years back and several months later I got an email from a CID investigator telling me it was stolen. The guy ended up in prison and they told me to keep the laser.

I have seen more than one person send such emails out in an attempt to discredite someone who competes with them on there.


+1 I would just sit tight. You have done nothing wrong.

If CID wants to talk with you, they will let you know.
