    Hi I posted a thread a while back saying I was looking for a 40m yagi or beam. I got a reply from a guy who said he would give me this antenna for $350. It looked like a wire antenna so I asked if it was a g5rv. He said yes. I said I can get those for 50 dollars and asked why he was going to sell me that at that price. He never responded.

    I don't want to say the calling in case it is not a scammer.

    You put your email address in your WTB ad which made it world-readable:

    "Hello, this is Brennan K6BFL. I am looking for a beam or yagi that can do 40m. I can pay with paypal. I am looking for under 350 + shipping.
    Email me at K6BFL456@gmail.com

    Thanks"

    The new rule I believe is WTB ads will be deleted if an email address is included in the ad and for good reason.
