    I advertised WTB a tuner. I got two replies. The replies were in bad English, neither reply wanted to take pay pal, both wanted me to send USPS money order. I played along and asked for the mailing address on the first one. Totally different name and location from the QRZ address. This is what I got " Your address have been noted down for shipping in here.
    You can proceed payment through usps money order to the name and address below
    Name: Jodie Isaac
    Address: 7503 Forest Dawn way,Houston,Texas.

    After payment get back to me a scan copy of the money order slip as I
    will proceed shipping in here 73's" This I have seen before on this forum.

    When I asked for a phone number to contact him, I got this "I am in duty now please give me your cell number so I give you a call"

    The call he is attempting to perpetrate is WB4NAD. I have attempted to find the real owner of this call so I can let him know his call is being used in a scam. If this is not a scam, my humble apologies. If you Know Larry T. Williams. please let him know.

    The other attempt is using call WB0GKL, registered to Roscoe Hawks. Based on his QRZ info, Roscoe was born in 1920. Again, cannot find contact info other than snail mail. "1920" I doubt he is selling a tuner. And again, my humble apologies if I am wrong.

    So beware, guys; I always go paypal. If they sound like these examples above, I don't buy, just the way I am.

    Hi I just wanted to let you know that two days ago had this same wb4nad email me about a radio I was wanting, back in April a Yaesu 100D this was out of the blue and I'm thinking I don't know this guy, so I ask do I know you he explained he seen my add about the Yaesu 100D. And he was using an email larrytwb4nad@gmail.com
    I told him I would not buy a radio from him since he is talking about an add I posted months ago. and I thought he was one of those guys out there trying to rip people off. And told him I was going to turn this into the FEDS and let them check it out. I haven't heard from him since. so maybe a high jack I don't know. but looking like someone has so just wanted to add this seeing he has hit you as well.

    I told him he was a fraud, a scam, and that I alerted the authorities, and I hope he goes to jail. Be vigil, they're out there......

    Last email I got from this guy using the WB4NAD call was to send money order to MaryJo Mellor, Las Vegas. I seem to recall her name coming up with someone using K5AH call also.

    This dirtbag also tried to scam me. I was looking for an A3WS antenna. He said he had one from a non-smoking home. Uh, an antenna from a non-smoking home? Beware of this lowlife.
