SCAM ALERT: SPETSNAZ_OMON, SUREAGREEMENTS, and SUREAGREEMENTS_NEW.
Recently you may have noticed the rather pushy sales pitches by these three members over rare Russian memorabilia that is literally unattainable to some degree; items including an FSB K6-3 Helmet, Korund VSR Camouflage Bulletproof Vest, Red Dot Sights, Silencers, and BVD Airborne Afghanistan Vests.

This has been concluded to be a SPAM! And any users are warned NOT to accept ANY requests through these individuals as well as their email accounts; krinkov@hotmail.com and sureagreements@hotmail.com

Please REPORT any suspicious activity from new members to the administration, and punishment will be dealt out to the individuals.

For more detailed proof, here are some forum posts from sites such as AK Files Forum and Military Photos.net;

Never mind

He's found & banned.

Trying his sales pitch before he's even a confirmed member AND he's in Spain....allegedly.

Yeah, he told me he was in Spain but had a brother in Russia and could get Russian Optics, mags, stock sets, SVD stuff, etc.
When I replied back to his second email he had blocked it.

He doesn't use paypal, only "bank transfer"

Something about this email reminded me of those Nigerians who used to send me faxes at work. Somebody died and you inherited a mill. Send us your bank info and we'll send you your $.

I did actually receive the same mail. I did make some questions to him to check more, since I suspected that this is just "phishing e-mail" or some kind of "nigerian letter" scam.

It is interesting offer but the story behind it is strange. There are many lures to get you interested in the offer...

EZAPAC:
Within the Spanish Air Force lies a small, but highly trained group of elite special operations troops known as the Escadrilla de Zapadores Paracaidistas (Parachute Combat Engineer/Sapper Squadron), or EZAPAC. The squadron is a company sized force of approximately 300 troops that is trained in executing several types of missions.

If the guy is from these troops I think he has no time importing and exporting anything from russia....

I did request couple NV sights and he responded that he had only one and payment is not possible with paypal...
If he can import new stuff from Russia he should have unlimited supply of gear and surplus.

My last email was to him just to inquire if I can pick up the gear in person and pay in cash. No more emails from him...


This is to conclude the report, thank you and stay vigilant comrades!
