    I have a old Kenwood twins for sale on Craig's list in Denver Colorado. Last night I received a call from a 3rde party and they said that K4AXE was just searching everywhere for this Item. I looked up K4AXE in the data base and it is an not a real call! I assume that XXXAX now rides as K4AXE. What happened to honesty.

    One lesson learned .... Don't buy anything that expensive on the internet .... to much of a chance of a scam

    A while back I heard about a scammer being scammed. A guy played the scammer by convincing him that he was also a scammer and they should team up as he has ways to get a lot of money if he has a team. After playing him along for a while they eventually met and the scammer was promptly arrested by the police.
