I received that exact email yesterday. Glad I read your alert.
Thanks For Info, 73´s de XE2OR
Wanted to buy tuner and got an answer from an fellow in 4-land.
Sent him the $$ but.........every time I called him he had not had a chance to box it or mailbox was full and never got my tuner. Called his local police and asked for a detective. Turns out he was selling his dads station but never shipping. Dad was p*****ed off. Had certified check two days later!
I have recently been scammed out of $1000.00 AUD by a person claiming to be ALAN HENDERSON K7ADH resides in MAYODEN NC!!! , Just before Christmas and my Mother Passing,, thanks a lot you piece of scum!!!
Some recent WTB scammers that contacted me in response to my WTB ad, along with descriptions, etc. are at http://www.aa4ga.com/2016/01/want-to-buy-scammers-on-qrz-qth-eham-etc.html
Some dirtbag has put firstname.lastname@example.org in when you look up my callsign. That is not me. Mine is email@example.com
That means that there is a good chance they might have your login and password. Go to your bio page and change both right away.
In the process of flushing out a scam now. fortunately I used PayPal. Seller responded to my WTB and sent me a different PayPal address to pay. that should have tipped me off but I didn't think it was to uncommon. I dug around some more and his call he gave me, W2FK, is valid but is doesn't have an email associated with it. So this guy created a fake gmail account to correspond with the call.
item I am trying to buy is only $100, pretty cheap amount to learn a lesson.
watch your six everyone.
