    he then sent me some pics of the radio and one had the serial number. when asked if pick up was available since I live north of Miami, silence.

    I just emailed him back asking if he will ship if pickup is not possible. Let's see if he bites. If he is not reading this page.

    ps I never had an ad on qrz. I responded to an ad that ke7nf had posted selling his 756 pro 3. So this scammer saw my response to ke7nf and got my email from my page with a tailored scam knowing the type of radio I wanted (plug). so this scammer is scanning all ads and responses. It is in your hands folks.
    Dang! I knew this was too good to be true.

    okay, he bit the bait. Said he was too busy with family to have a pickup but will take a paypal payment. Then asked him if he will take 735 (not icom 735) as I was short of money. I bet he grabs this bait too. No ham worth his weight in salt would ever go down $100 bucks for such a clean radio.

    If he got your email address from your qrz page then he’s using a compromised account. AB4WM was last active Friday so he’s using another account under the radar.

    You might want to address him by his real name, Alexander Jakande, and ask him about the weather in Lagos since he lives nearby.
