    Except that one way to detect a scam is to search for the same picture but having a different callsign, using Google images.

    Assuming that everyone knows how to do that. The fact that it seems many don't even know how to use the 'search' function in the forums would tell me that many don't.

    If you are running Google Chrome, just right-click on the photo and chose "Search Google for image".

    Another method is to open a second browser window to images.google.com, then use the mouse drag and drop the image onto the search field.

    Someone posing as K4LYS, Paul, trying to sell me a FRG-7. I asked for photos, with call sign. I got photos pulled straight from Ebay, with no call sign. He asked for friends and family on Paypal. Be aware.

    VA3HRO ripped me off for 340 on a Palstar tuner. Like an idiot I fell for the send PayPal as gift/family. The package was lost by Canada Post and Insurance paid off July 11 and he now will not answer emails. Still selling stuff here though. Beware of this guy.

    Was that for the AT1500DT he had listed? Starting in Feb. he started listing lots of stuff. Will he be banned? Googled the call and back in 2014 on eham it was reported as a hijacked call.

    Someone is pretending to be Michael Towers, N5RXP. After he saw me post interest in a for sale item here he emailed me offering same item for less. N5RXP has no email listed on his Zed page. Could have been anyone emailing me.
