    Almost got scammed.
    Hi Michael,

    In response to your wanted advert on QRZ I have for sale my Yaesu FT-7900R/E in a mint and cosmetic condition.
    Mobile has 5 months on it. Used as the original owner in a non smoking home.
    Looking to buy one with higher range so I'm willing to sell this one off to you at $170.
    PayPal Only
    Shipping exclud.

    I can do $160 cash. I am in Crestview and can pickup tonight.

    I'm sorry but I mentioned PayPal Only
    I could include shipping. That's my best offer


    Ok, I am confused. I am more than willing to pay cash. I live less than 2 miles so pick up is not a problem. And you said negotiable.

    "Looking to buy one with higher range.."

    Higher range? That's a clear signal the seller hasn't a clue.

    The slightly odd grammar is also a red flag.

    Yup. And "sorry, not interested" (or just ignore it) is all that's really necessary.

    I have a NEW scammer to add to the list. He is using Curtis J Bisesi (K2WOP) b/c the real Curtis doesn't have an email address on his QRZ page. This person is very good as he also provided a QSL card in front of the Flex 6500 with Maestro to sell me.

    The Curtis J Bisesi scammer has been going on here for months - nothing new. Search this thread for "Curtis J Bisesi".

    I just received a random email from Curtis J Bisesi asking if I would be interested in a Yaesu 857D. Oddly enough I was looking around last night for another and had picked one up but had not at any time broadcasted my intention to the general public. How is this email possible? Any thoughts would be great.

    KD2LMR posted a forsale for a FT-817ND. The ad has no pictures and their QRZ profile has no email address. I posted a reply asking for an email address and photos. What I got was an email from stating they're selling their "ultimate qrp station." The email contained no pictures and again the profile contains no email. Consider KD2LMR and KC9QQC's accounts compromised. I'm wondering how many accounts on QRZ have been compromised? I think a list of those callsigns should be created and made public so we can stop these foreign criminals.
