Kalashnikov USA Website Fraud Alert

No matter where you go or what you do, there’s always someone out there trying to swipe your hard-earned money. We, firearms enthusiasts, are no different from anyone else in this regard. In fact, it seems lately criminals are trying even harder, using the current situation to trick us into thinking we’re getting a deal on a much-wanted firearm. Recently, I found a Kalashnikov USA fraud alert waiting for me and since I know not all of you sign up for their mailing list, I’m going to share it with everyone to get the word out.

The Kalashnikov USA Website Fraud Alert Email:

KUSA Friends,
Because of you, we have a close and robust community of like-minded people. We’re committed to nurturing our community and providing you with the best experience from the moment you visit our website and our dealers to the moment you’re using our products.
We recently discovered some bad actors that want to take advantage of our community by duplicating our website and presenting themselves as Kalashnikov USA. We have already taken the proper steps to take this fake website down.
Meanwhile, we wanted you to be aware that these scammers exist and be careful when shopping online at kalashnikov-usa.com and in general.
Please follow these steps to ensure you’re placing your order on our authentic website:

1. URL: Our proper website domain is kalashnikov-usa.com.

2. Website navigation and homepage: Although the similarities are close, there are some visual queues in the navigation and homepage differences.

3. Payment Process: We use the highest payment protection when transacting on our website. We will never ask you to place an order first, transfer the money to us via services like Zelle, or ask you to give us your bank information.

As you can see, this is serious and Kalashnikov USA is concerned with protecting its customers. If you ever stumble upon what seems to be a manufacturer’s or dealer’s website and it seems kind of sketch check around. Ask about it on the many message boards or discord chats available. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
