    Ok, dumb question but - where do I FIND these email addresses that are supposed to be listed on QRZ? I've looked at several profiles and can't find it, nor can I find where it shows on mine. I did list my address to sign up and all, but if there's another place to put it in the profile I can't find it. I feel like I'm missing something very, very obvious but I've looked several times for addresses people specifically said where there and I've given up and decided to ask.

    It's on your QRZ lookup page, under your name and address. You must hover your mouse over it to make it appear. This is to avoid email harvesting bots.

    Oh just noticed thst yours in particular is not showing. Thst means you probably didn't supply a public email for it. To do that, you edit your call sign page details.

    Ah, ok. I wouldn't think I'd have overlooked that "use mouse to view" but anyway - fixed mine, it should be showing up now. Thanks!

    Ok, I just posted on a post for a cobweb antenna and then I got this for cheaper. Does not sound legit.

    For sale is my 5 months old MFJ-1835 Cobweb Antenna in a mint and cosmetic condition. I'm the original owner and used it in my antenna farm with my ham radios.

    Only reason I'm selling is to raise funds for an upgrade.

    Asking $150 PayPal. Ship 48

    Another "active scammer"

    DO NOT respond to any emails from someone pretending to be KK7H (AK7H1@outlook.com)

    He keeps emailing his scam crap but finally blocked him. It's a "please help me by sending cash and I'll pay you back" BS

    IOW, "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today."

    These guys think we're all idiots. My favorite response (after "PLONK") is,
    I was born on a Wednesday but, not LAST Wednesday. ;)
     
    KE6N, WD4IGX and W7UUU like this.

    They probably make nice chunk of change on under 10% of us!

    I bet we would be amazed at how many suckers there really are out there, and how much money these guys get away with.

    There are still a lot of people out there that must not read to see what is going on around them. People post warning people of some scam, that has been going on for years, like they are the first one ever to get scammed in the way they got scammed.

    Too many people live their lives oblivious.
