I THINK I SMELL A RAT! Replace the .com with :com to disable link.

From m0clnpaul@zoho:com
I saw your wanted AD, so am contacting you concerning it.
The requested item is out for sale by me in a very good working and physical condition.
Get back to me if you still need it. So that we can strike a deal.

I think these scammers are wearing out the word "item".

Same guy replied to one of my WTB adverts.
Well known hijacked callsign.
I was looking for a used VX-150, he said that he had 5
brand new in box. Very odd for a discontined radio, don'tcha think?
When I asked for photos he sent stock photos from Yaesu website.
Then I Googled his call and email, many scam hits.
Declined his offer.
