Thanks for your opinions. The more I think about it the more I'm pretty sure is was an address mismatch on the form. He has asked me to go with him to purchase a gun next week when he's in Utah. I will be more than happy to point him in the right direction.
What I won't do is buy a gun and then sell it to him. I don't know what the law is on how long I have to own it before I sell it. If I were to do that for him I would then have the intent to sell it to a private party before I bought it from a dealer. I feel that's crossing the legal line. My integrity says I won't do that - plus what if there really is something the I don't know that a background check would uncover. I highly doubt it but it is possible.
