    Western Union? Money Order? Come on guys. Sure signs of a future problem. PayPal only. And never use the "Friends and Family" option. I don't even trust my friends and family that much!

    Good luck with all of this. But my guess is that he'll end up with your money and you'll get an ulcer.

    Insisting on Western Union or PayPal friends & family is a sure sign of a scammer.

    Not just a scam for the buyer but a scam for Paypal. I know a lot of people think Paypal has a lot of money and really don't care that they are using F&F for goods and services and cheating Paypal out of a commission when it clearly says in their TOS don't use F&F for goods and services even if it is your mother. When people use Paypal F&F to buy and item Paypal needs to start coming down on those people and removing them from Paypal per their TOS.

    If you want to use a service like Paypal to help you with a money transaction but the person wants to cheat Paypal out of their commission then I would not trust them at all. If they are willing to steal that small amount then why would I deal with them?
    People sure love their money.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    All I see are a couple of CB antennas.

    There is a good chance that you can catch him on the air in front of his peers if you can access the Thursday nights at 8 pm local time Indiana Statewide D-Star net. The net is on reflector 24B

    Seems the clause of good character doesnt hold for this fellow.

    Yea I would call the ARRL, and also the FCC .
    After all if he is willing to scam practically a grand off fellow hams,he would fraud the FCC on license exams etc since you said he is a ve .
    I would spread the word far and wide. I had a problem like this several years ago. I sent a postal money order for a rig, in an envelope with a tag which the party had to sign. they denied it. i had the money order receipt, date,their signature,etc. I turned it over to the local prosecutor where the scumbag lived and lo and behold, i received a money order in an envelope with the local prosecutors heading on the envelope. when you get the law involved they usually go maximum pucker.

    $950 is felony theft.And mail fraud and internet fraud. interstate fraud?.hmmm FBI,Postal Law enforcement?

    Going from state to state via internet is still fraud that the Feds have jurisdiction.

    God bless
