    There is a scammer using the name William C Neubauer and the email address of w5lbharnradio@gmail.com He is redirecting login links
    to hoff-ashby.com.au. I have already informed hoff-ashby that their site has been compromised as well as sending it over to gmail.

    It appears that William's account has been comprimosed on this site also as the email matches the scammers

    haven't heard back from the compromised site owner in australia, but looking at the time difference and what day it is, not surprised.
    sounds like the same person and phishing site.

    Did a little more digging...I've found ads by him on eham, two way radio forum, cqnothernireland, cbjunkies, 73inc, globaltuners and a few others.
    He's not just on QRZ and not just trying to buy hardware, so be careful about any email from William Neubauer.

    If anyone knows William, please let him know this is all happening under his name and callsign.

    Yep, I just got the same email..Wants to buy my Swan Comanche Transceiver..

    These guys work on the "law of averages"...Send out 100 of these emails and if just one falls for it, it`s a success...

    It`s like the "robo" phone calls we`ve been getting recently.

    I just had an exchange with him today as well. Unfortunately I clicked the link without thinking. Once things started to smell rotten I came here an immediately changed my password for QRZ. I hope I caught it in time. I thought I had read this post back before I started posting things for sale but apparently not.

    TJ,
    Very smart to do and you now have informed your fellow Hams as well.
