To identify a scam website, the next step is by payment options. If the website says it only accepts payment by Zelle, Venmo, Cash App, or Bitcoin, that's a very strong signal of a scam website.
These websites don't offer a legitimate way of taking payment. None of the scam websites accept credit cards.
These scam sites promise fake shipping policies. Unlike real ammo dealers, they will say that they allow you to ship orders to all 50 states. They don;t mention any rule about the six states that currently have laws restricting online ammo buying.

Scam websites listed fake store locations on websites. You can check the store location vio google map, if that is a real address or fake.
