    If you post on Craigs list you can remain anonymous while trying to locate an owner. But you have to expect a few strange responses. I recently posted a mans wedding band found at a specific park. One responder lost his ring either in his yard he said or in the city some 10 miles from this park. Another lost his ring at the park, he said, near cabin 9. Except this park as no cabins at all. All part of trying to get something back to owners.

    Ha! "Pirate" would be so surprised and mad if he/she knew there was a whole thread making fun of him/her! Lol
    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.

    Then of course make up some place for them to meet you and sit back and wait for the reply of why you didn't show up.
    and make sure the place to meet is 60 miles at a McDonalds in a small city away from your city and of course don't show up. Then when they *****, say you returned it to someone else.

    I belong to the Lost My Stuff Group. We will volunteer to search for lost metal objects for people. Anything from property stakes to jewelry. Most people who use this free service will give you a detailed description of the lost object before you start your search. When I find a silver ring during a regular hunt,, I don't advertise it.

    Some of them don't care...They would argue it in front of police.




    We sold Estate jewelry and the same scammers come out, while looking in your cases they say..." That looks like the ring that was stolen from me." ...They are hoping you didn't do the correct paperwork when you bought. And a lot of guys don't for many reasons, doesn't have to be bad intentions. BUT, some that did, may turn over the ring to the con because it's cheaper and easier than trying to deal with police. I've run into it a couple times years back, luckily I did all paperwork correctly and could tell them to stick it. They get loud, start accusing, say they are calling cops, and you just stay calm and tell them.."do what you have to do!" or "please do! If it's really yours they will make sure you get it back, today!!!"They never do though, they give up and move on. Tons of scammers out there of all types!!!

    gotta to watch out with too much information- ive been at this for some time know a lot of hunters - 100s
    heard a lot of stories
    #1 one guy was water hunting - teenagers on shore are making fun of him for awhile
    finally one of the girls goes out and asks if him found anything - he says ...yes and shows her a small gold ring with a pink
    stone. Little while later - life guards goes out and asks if he found girls ring - its gold with a pink stone
    guy says - she never said she lost a ring - little while later police show up and demand he give her the ring - he does
    the groups starts to leave and as they walk away they all turn and wave and laugh at him
    #2 - guy posts tons of gold and relics yrs ago on another forum - he says town where he lives
    guy comes on and says - I'm like next town over - we should hook up - okay - where do you live
    and he tells the guy - week goes by and guy tells him to meet him like 5 miles away - he does and guy
    tells him he'll be a little late but he's on his way. Guy waits like an hour - tries calling guy back - no good
    and finally goes back home - front door is open and everything that was readily available was taken
    lots of valuable relics and a few ring cases
    #3 guy told everyone he was going to Carribean for a couple weeks - he posted on facebook and on forums
    that he was going and exact dates - on face book he mentioned where he lived and someone said
    hey! I'm from same area where do you live and guy told him you know the big gas station on corner of
    blah and blah - next street down - white house about half way down - stop by sometime if youre
    in the neighborhood I'll be back in a few weeks - the guy did after first week he was gone - friend of his
    calls him and says "hey - you got back early from vacation?" he says " no...what are you talking about?"
    I just drove by and your front door was wide open" "Oh crap! - do me a favor and go check my house out"
    friend does and says - like the other guy - everything he had in display cases was gone - Revwar and CW
    stuff all gone.
    got many more I could tell - so just watch out just how much you say
    Ive got a few of my own - but if guy(s) still lurk and I tell those stories - they might try and find me again
    As far as sites go - Yrs ago my GF used to take all kinds of pics of me detecting and when internet started
    I thought nothing of showing those pics along with great finds I made - suddenly - places I had all to myself
    all the time were covered with other hunters - finally a few guys told me that they could tell where I was
    going by the buildings or other land marks in my back grounds - I crop now

    There is a good chance "Pirate" is aware of and reading this thread! There are so many lurkers on all the detecting forums ready to run a scam on you!
