    Same scam yesterday except selling a FT-991. Transaction went forward with Paypal...he acknowledged payment and (thankfully) paypal refunded the payment overnight. Cammiah Mireles was the name of the recipient that used ka3fzoo@gmail.com. I also received email after seeking the status of some qrz adds that appeared to still be open. What can be done about this guy. Is he scanning adds, finding inquiries on the add page and then sending email? Surely the email address should provide a trail to find him?

    KA3FZOO@gmail.com Just tried to get me for a whopping $25. However I had already read this thread and the weird call email rang a bell.

    Apparently, I took the bait after he offered me a connect systems cs800d. I sent $200 via Paypal. Do you know of any recourse I might have to recoup my $$ from a transaction three weeks ago? Thanks Steve KF4GA

    Steve, if you paid with PayPal goods and services I believe you can file a dispute for fraud. I am not sure of the time span allowed to do this so get on PayPal today and see if you can get it done.

    Contact Paypal. Hopefully you didn't use Friends & Family.
