    I'm amazed at how the scammers can copy a well known webpage. They copy a copyrighted logo with impudence. I've gotten loads of UPS and FedEx emails claiming my recently ordered package required confirmation. I ignore all such emails.

    Just recently I ignored one such email even though it did not request confirmation because I did not recognize the shipper. It turned out to be a gift. It gets delivered even though I ignored the email.

    Thank for the heads up. It's a shame these types can't be dealt with in the appropriate manner. All the different scammers that are out there cost us millions. Be vigilant!

    Absolutely!! Add @N3AB and a number of others to that list.

    "If you see something, say something"

    Hit the "report" button if you see an ad that's not right - seemingly Photoshopped call signs are very very high on the watch list.

    The Mods would much rather deal with a false alarm report than know someone just got taken for $1300 to a scammer for a radio they'll never see

    Did you report the occurrence to the mods here on QRZ.COM?

    If yes...thank you.

    If no...shame on you.

    If crap like that doesn't get reported, QRZ can't do anything to help
