    I was just scammed by someone who hacked an existing member's account here at They changed the account's email address and password which fooled me. I assumed I was dealing with the member's callsign in their username but I wasn't.

    Thankfully I purchased using Paypal credit and no money ever left my account.

    Who is that someone? This thread is about WJ9E and not "someone."

    UPDATE: I have taken further action against Mike Elder(WJ9E) of Rushville, IN.
    I have notified ARRL that Elder is dishonest and scammed another ham out of $950.00.
    ARRL might be interested since Mike is a Volunteer Examiner and should be watched closely.
    I don't expect ARRL to help get my money back. Just notify them what is going on. I havn't given up)))

    If you Google " Mike Elder WJ9E " you will see all manner of posts related to bad equipment deals and strange
    goings on. Might be helpful to do that before you buy anything online from anyone.
