    This morning he sent me an e-mail and asked where the picture was of my item with HIS callsign in the picture instead of mine. I asked him if there was anything ELSE I could put in the picture, other than his callsign. I never heard back from him. That tells me where this is going...... BTW, the e-mail address I got does not match what KD8DEY has above. I think WR2E is dead-nuts on with his assessment. This is meant to scam somebody else using me as the shill.....

    Take a picture of your microwave, or toaster, or whatever... with his so-called callsign on it! I bet he don't know the difference...

    Or, maybe make it less obvious that you're pulling his chain. Take a picture of some electronic gizmo, say a audio receiver or something...

    How good are you at photo-shopping stuff? Maybe photoshop the model number of the radio onto the george foreman grill...

    Would be funny to see that pop up for sale!

    Oh come on gents. This has 1000% scam written all over it. That's a generic reply. He doesn't mention the item he wants and who in 5-land says "Hi Mate"

    And "I look forward to read from you with details photos and priced shipped
    to me..." is English as second language.

    I want to pipe up in defense of the REAL AF5CC, as he and I have done business together to our mutual benefit over the past year or so with multiple transactions. And he doesn't talk like that. :) I've bought many items from him and been satisfied each time.

    John, a word of advice; if you can get your email up on your QRZ page it might go a ways to help mitigate this confusion.

    John Gieger is very active in yahoo user groups - and has been as long as I have been there. I have no idea if this is a scammer or the real fella, or is the real fella who is a scammer. I just recognized his name and call from the Icom yahoo user group.
