    I had a fellow offer to sell me a KPA500 and KAT500, today like in like-new condition with cables, boxes and manuals for 1615 complete including shipping by FedEx. He sent nice pictures, no QSL or other identifying object showing. His email was ab4wm@gmail.com He was gung ho to make a deal until I told him my sister lived in his QRZ listed hometown and I insisted on her picking it up with cash in hand. He got really silent from there on. Not a peep, and he was answering every email within minutes up till that point. AB4WM shows no email listed on his QRZ page.
    Just an FYI.

    Thank you for this. Same deal here. I posted a WTB ad on EHAM for a Tentec Argonaut V. He sent me an email directly which means he got my email from here vs replying through EHAM and getting the anonymous director reply.
    Sent pictures after I asked, no call sign on them, but they didn’t appear in any internet search and the exif data wasn’t suspect. Something wasn’t ringing true so I googled his call, which is a legit call. I found your post here. I actually have an Aunt and a Cousin near his location in Miami so I did the same thing you did and told him if this works out I’d have one of them swing by to pick it up since they were coming North in a week. Never heard a peep from him after that. Before that email, he replied within minutes, I gave him 24 hours before posting this just in case he left for work and missed my emai.

    So his account here has either been hacked or he is just not legit. In order to get my email through here he has to be logged in.

    How do we report this to admins?

    I clicked the little "REPORT" button that is right under your question of how to report this to admins........... so it has been done, and that is also how it can be done as well. Good luck
