    I posted on QRZ that I am looking for a Icom 5100.I told him I found a 5100. He said he need the money for his wife in the hospital I told him I will forward this information onto others He told me to forward the payment to
    Anna Marshall
    4715 sweeter avenue ,Evansville Indiana 47715

    I ask him for his call sign so far no reply. Is this a scam of these people? I check here QRZ and did not see anything.

    You posted your email address in a public forum where anyone could see it, you were then contacted by a scammer looking for an easy mark. Next time refer contact to either QRZ private message or your QRZ profile email which is only visible to logged-in ham members.
    Actually per the newly updated Swapmeet rules any wanted post containing your email address will be deleted, for this exact reason.

    BTW:

    You don't have a published email address on qrz.com. You might consider adding one to prevent scammers from using your callsign to defraud.
