Suresight scam still going???

So many of you are familiar with the often discussed suresight scammers. In 2008, I ordered sights that I never recieved. I recieved emails for about 4 months giving me "updates on production." They never produced or shipped anything and ceased to even send emails or automatically refund my money. They ignored my emails/phone calls requesting a refund. I've been deployed multiple times since then, and pretty much forgot about it. To be honest, I didn't have time to give it the attention it deserved.

The website is still up and recieving orders?!?!?!?!?!

NOTE: Your credit card will be charged immediately.


How many of you have taken this scam to law? Did anyone who didn't recieve an order get a refund? I have no illusions of getting my money back, but that website needs to be shutdown.

I saw an old, but good post on glocktalk showing how many people got ripped off and recommending people report it if applicable:

It never fails to amaze me that our authorities seemingly can't do anything about something like that. How can a company like this be allowed to remain in business?

The only thing that would make this situation worse is if they were only using GunPal/GPal as the payment gateway.

SureSight LLC Sponsorship Revoked

It's a real shame that the guy who wrote the XD Torture Test article is the owner of this company.
While I do trust the gun, I now wonder how valid and accurate the article actually was.

Glad you posted this. I have been away for a while and my dad just bought some night sights the other day.

Probably too late now but you can always contact your bank and get a refund on your credit card within the first 90 days or so.

Exclamation SureSight Scam?

I am a Glock owner/operator. Back around 2006 or 2007 I ordered SureSight sights for my G-19. Got them in about a week and found them extremely easy to install myself. Greatly improved my shooting. They do work as advertised. No question about it.

But...starting about 2009 or so I again tried to order these sights for my other Glocks but the web site would not accept my payment. Tried for a year or so and finally gave up trying to order the sights.

Now I see the whole deal is being called a "scam". I can't testify to that fact but all I can say is the sights are worth every penny.

With this good of a product all I can figure is the principals (owner/s) are having some kind of personal problems (health, divorce, drugs etc.). It is a shame as this is a really good product that ups your accuracy dramatically for a relatively low price.

If you think that scam is bad ...

Google "Super Replicas Scam"

10 or so years -- they are definitely millionaires. It's being run by a Mormon priest who just beat a molestation charge in Hondaraus. They still have websites , and a booming Facebook page , and still tons of fake YouTube videos that are edited , or rental cars are used .

It's very interesting reading , and a "super replica scam" google search will have many reading for hours in amazement that our government haven't stopped these Mafiosi Panama idiots -- "Tony Sinclair" is behind it , he preaches Mormonism in response to all the people who send him 20k for a maybach , Bugatti , etc ...

And someone outed him through the sites ip address and the Mormon "tony Sinclair" , is actually a Mormon priest who is on the run from multiple countries and resides in panama.
