Stolen PEQ 15 on Ebay?????

Is there any reason or way that a serialized PEQ 15 could be for sale?
The guy selling it says in an email that it is an "Airsoft Unit", if so why is he asking $3990.00?
The picture of the item has the place where the serial number would be blacked out.

Link to Auction.

He sold a few new Savit M249 stocks for under the going rate recently...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=230413202408

Going off of that and his Name on Ebay he's probably some supply douche making a little money on the side.

Fry him.

User ID has SSG.

Been a while...does Navy abbreviate rank the same? I want to say no but not 100% certain.

If not, I am guessing he is using the Navy lexicon to throw folks off and attract the word searchers.

If has SAW stocks and PEQ-15, then he is definetely not your run of the mill crook.

For the Army PEQ-15 are a sensitive item and supposed to be accounted for via a hands on inventory every 30 days by either the unit Commander or an appointed rep. on a rotating basis.

So there is plenty to this story.

If somebody gets me the serial number, this can get fun.

There's the intent for an export violation.

This is all what I told him and he alters the ad to remove the Brand New Realdeal part. And now it is just listed as a $4k airsoft toy. I'm going to ask for the serial number today.

The original ad and all the Emails I have calling him out along with a link to this thread have been forwarded to these folks (some colleagues of mine)

I don't sell on E-Gay but isn't there something in their policies about stolen or government products?

There is enough in his add description alone to open an investigation by even the most rookie investigator.

Emails

Dear ssg1234a,

If this is a model for airsoft use why do you want
and expect $3,999 for it? This is a controlled and
serialized piece of US gear. Steal Much?
Staff Sergeant.

Dear sere0331,

This is an airsoft unit, but just because I'm asking $3,999 for it, doesn't mean anyone pays that amount for a toy.

- ssg1234a


Dear ssg1234a,

I believe your description says "Brand new,
realdeal PEQ15 ATPIAL by Insight". Is it real or
fake. You could be facing a felony. Screen shots
of this auction will be turned into my CID office
Monday morning.

- sere0331

Dear sere0331,

Now it is corrected, please see my other auction. Thank you for your time.

- ssg1234a



Dear ssg1234a,

So to prove it is an airsoft toy and not the
realdeal why don't you post a picture of it
showing the serial number? You know where you
blacked it out?

Dear sere0331,

There you go, you can sleep your nights safely now. The only thing real with this plastic box is Insight sticker set that was used to replace original Hong Kong stickers. You should be given a medal for being such a hero with toys like this.

- ssg1234a



He posts a picture of the "serial number" on Ebay and (GASP) it's all zeros

They are also pretty handy for calling in aircraft to targets......not to mention lighting up the ground in front of you so you don't fall on your face.
