    I was contacted by someone saying that he was Stephen Witte - KB9FB, after seeing that I was interested in an LDG Tuner. I ended up processing the payment through PayPal but then I received a notice from PayPal stating that it looked suspicious.

    The person that logged in to "collect" the money was a dirtbag named Jerome Oakley...probably another fake name. The end result is that my bank issued a stop payment before the ass hat could collect.

    Beware of someone saying that the is Stephen Witte or someone using the following emails: or

    I really wish we had a certain "button" we could press to make people like this disappear in to thin air!

    Damn! I am glad the payment was stopped and you got your money back. I really loathe these scam artists.

    They last logged in on May 29th and the account was updated on 5-14. One post under that call for a tuner for under $250 so there is no callsign in the photos. Account has no email address.

    I had the same think happen today with this guy. Wanted to sell me MFJ-998 Intellituner for $290 shipped. He was using Newley created OutLook address
    All Hams need to have their email address listed on, etc. These guys troll for people who don't, then create yahoo, Outlook, etc. address & they are off to prey on unsuspecting Hams.
    And sadly the most venerable tends to be the elderly . Stay Safe, Mike Stephens, N7KR
