Does this person ring any bells with anyone?
I placed a wanted ad on here and this person has replied;
Kindly advise if you still need items as requested as I have in stock
for sale. Let me know and I'll get back to you.

I am of the opinion that somone may be trying to scam me!!!
Could be real. What makes you think it is a scam?
There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
It's bogus. The tip off is that the reply is completely generic and doesn't mention specific equipment.. We have had at least a dozen complaints about this in the last six months. The scammers seem to operate or (claim to be) either in the UK or Spain. In one instance they even used the call sign of a real UK ham.
It is a scam. All kinds of stuff about it in the Ham References forum here on QRZ.com

I bet you listed a WANT for an item. That is what these SLIMEBALLS are doing. Going through QRZed want ads and replying to every one they find.
Everytime I post a WANT, they send me all kinds of these bogus offers.
Wish I could PERSONALLY go and kick the living $#!* out of each one of these VERMIN!!!!
I know good people who have been Hoodwinked by these rotten people, sent money by Western Union and were completely RIPPED OFF!!!
IF ANYONE EVER asks you to send money by WESTERN UNION, it is a SCAM!!!!
NO ONE uses Western Union but SCAMMERS looking to STEAL YOUR MONEY!!!
