    Hi All,

    I was contacted by a few stations who posted wanted ads for a variety of equipment. They were responded by a scammer using a email josewk9k@gmail.com signing each email with my call. Lucky for these three stations they emailed me prior to payment. Any station receiving emails signed with my call please cross reference with me at WK9K@arrl.net.

    In my limited computer snooper skills I think this scammer is using a PING address of 1489464987975
    I have an email from him that can be expanded for programmer search.

    This is why I prefer to all my wheelings and dealings in person, face to face! And then if the scammer meets me and draws a gun to empty my wallet. He gives me a "YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE!!!"; I will tell him to pull the trigger. Cuz, without my money, my life is worthless!!!
