Please be aware, someone is spoofing my ident , VA3ELE
I am the original VA3ELE and this is myself posting this warning to anyone that is looking to purchase anything from me! I do not have any products for sale.
someone is spoofing my ident here using an email firstname.lastname@example.org
this is not my email, please be aware. I do not wish to have my rep damaged by imitators/scammers
Thank you to vk6wb for bringing this to my attention, your help is much appreciated.
That's why I sent you an email Peter, to advise you on this.
There is, I think, and darn sure, we all think, there is far too
much of this crap going on lately.
It seems impossible to think that even hams are doing it to other hams.
Thank you also for helping with this. i just saw the email form you as I was showing my wife the other emails.
What else can I do to prevent being impostered ?
This guy offered me a HD-70HG for $2K. Seemed too good to be true and it was. Based on the emails I received English maybe a second language for this guy but then folks often say that about me. Thanks for the heads up.
Looks like another scam has been inforce, It has been brought to my attention that "I" am selling a HD tower for $2000. Nope, I am not. same email adress is being used
Someone with your call tried to sell me a TS-60. His email was: VA3ELE@dcemail.com.
I assume that's not you, either.

Thank you Dennis, no that is not me, my only and proper email address can be found on my QRZ info.
I will contact this ISP also.
Hi Peter. Good thing I checked here. I've got an email from this scammer saying "you've" got an FT107M with the matching power supply for sale.
I don't know if you've posted this notice anywhere else, but www.eham.net would be another good place.
Thanks Graham I will do that. what email did the scammer use? please post here so I can keep track and notify the ISP
thanks again. I just registered my domain peter@VA3ELE.ca and peter@VA3ELE.com ,these will be the only email I will use from now on for ham radio communications
so if there is something for sale that looks like its from me and doesnt have one of those two email adress' it's not me
Here is the email he gave me Peter: email@example.com
Hope this helps.
