    I have an essentially brand new Yaesu FT-857D HF Transceiver with
    ATAS-120 antenna in mint conditions both inside/out and comes with all
    original accessories including: The original box, manual, mic,
    mounting bracket, spare ATC fuses, power cord and separation kit. It
    provides coverage of the 160 to 6 meter bands plus the 144 MHz and 430
    MHz bands, the ergonomic layout and large tuning knob insure safe
    mobile operation. And look at the receive coverage: 0.1-56, 76-108,
    118-164 and 420-470 MHz, the front panel is removable and it is
    remotable with the optional YSK-857 separation kit. It is a 10 out of
    10 operationally and cosmetically, this unit has never been in a
    smoking environment and it is still in its original packaging with out
    any fault or damages, i am the original owner and i will sell the
    complete unit for $700 plus insured postage.

    Sorry but my paypal has been suspended. Which other way can you
    transfer money? Also get back to me with your shipping address and
    phone number so that I can arrange for shipment.

    Thanks

    Well, first you have to find out who "them" actually is.

    According to the link provided, someone else is using this guy's callsign:
    Also : http://forums.qrz.com/showthread.ph...-W4EHL-call-do-not-deal!-!!!THIS-IS-A-SCAM!!!
    The email address given for WA4EHL does not match his QRZ email.
    Unfortunately, ANYONE can setup a Gmail account using someone else's callsign.
    Equally unfortunate is that it is difficult, but not impossible, to
    trace an IP Address for a Gmail account. It CAN be done about %95
    of the time using "ReadNotify" software. This is a "pay for service" but
    they do offer a free 15 day trial. (Note: In order for "ReadNotify" to work,
    the receiver MUST open the message sent to him.) So you should write
    him from another account and name. A smart scammer will ignore any emails
    from people he has successfully scammed. If he's really smart, unfortunately,
    he will never use that account again. But then again, scammers are LAZY!

    Have you tried contacting the REAL WA4EHL at the QRZ email address?
    He may not be aware of this situation, but should be. Or, he may be aware
    of the situation and have some information you could use.

    Also, did the scammer give you the UK Phone number that he gave the other poster?
    Please note that the "703" in that UK phone number is for a redirected
    phone call.
    (Could be a cell phone, but is also commonly used to
    make people think they are IN the UK, when they could be anywhere
    in the world.


    How did you send this money?
    To what country? (Not that it matters much, some WU Transfer
    Services (Like "Money In Minutes" TM) can be picked up at any WU
    office anywhere in the world, even if you list on it "To Dave Smith, Seattle, WA, USA. Anyone with the Money Transfer Control Number and a "Dave Smith"
    ID Card can pick up the money.

    If it was sent via Western Union, you have few, if any, options. It's gone forever.

    A few years ago someone got hold of one of my credit card numbers
    and used it to send $165 to Puerto Rico. I got my money back with a charge-back with the credit card company, but Western Union would give me NO INFORMATION AT ALL about the receiver of the money.
    Not what form of ID used, address on ID, address of the WU office
    where it was picked up, not even the CITY where the WU receiver was!
    This was even after I had sent them proof of fraud, a formal complaint, copy of the police report, copy of the bank charge back, etc.

    WU cited "Privacy Policy". The official bank of scammers......

    If you sent the funds via Pay Pal, you have options.
    I'm not sure exactly how they work, I don't use Pay Pal.
    Someone else will have to advise you about Pay Pal options.
