    I have received two unsolicited offers to sell items after posting in QRZ.

    He indicates that he is W6GQ - W6GQ profile does not list an email................

    ???

    Yep, I received a message from him. W6GQ was a moderator at one time. Not sure if he still is or not. Not sure if this cat is the real W6GQ or not.

    You should contact Fred and ask him.

    It may be a scam that needs
    his attention.

    A real mod should have a QRZ address.

    Of course it's not the real W6GQ.
    Fred and/or other QRZ staffers will want copies of the emails. You have those, KA9JLM doesn't.

    This isn't from BIll. Ignore those emails. Bill would never do that.

    It is good that you reported it. :)

    You are not the first to get emails from someone that made up a email address to fool users.
