    I found an ad selling a Flex Maestro over on QTH.
    Price was good, and seemed legit.
    I bought it and Paypal'd (not friends and family).
    He sent tracking information that appeared legit, although I believe the site is bogus now (https://skyexpdpcon.com/web/).
    My tracking showed correct info at first, but never updated, and now just shows invalid tracking number.

    He says he has a Flex 6700 he is trying to sell as well, BEWARE!!!!!!!

    Here is “IK2WYJ’s” 7/27/2019 QTH ad:

    “I have for sale my Flex Maestro used lightly with my Flex6500 that I sold yesterday. Maestro is in like new cosmetic condition and always kept covered………………………….……”

    https://swap.qth.com/search-results.php?startnum=30&keywords=flex&fieldtosearch=titleordesc

    Below is a previous similarly worded 1/1/2018 QRZ ad from a real ham, from which “IK2WYJ” probably got the wording for his ad:

    “I have for sale my Flex Maestro used lightly with my Flex6500 that I sold yesterday. Maestro is in like new cosmetic condition and always kept covered………………………………..”

    https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/flex-radio-maestro-control-console-for-6000-series.593792/

    I’d open a case with Paypal immediately.

    Did you report this to KA9FOX and in qth.com’s scammer reports forum? IK2WYJ appears to be an unmanaged QRZ account with no email address. The ad is still active so others could still get ripped off.

    Curious - did you pay using Paypal "Goods and Services" or "Friends and Family"?

    https://skyexpdpcon.com/web/ was created back in Feburary probably by the criminal scammers to dupe you into thinking you could track your package.

    Did you enter any other info into that website besides a tracking number?

    It's hosted on cloudflare.com's address space and seems to be no longer responding.
