    Can ads be deleted or disappear? I can not find the ad for a radio I just purchased and now I’m getting worried.

    I don't think that happens.

    What was the exact item you purchased, and what was the call of the seller? EASILY searched

    It was a Yaesu 857 from N4BXB.

    You nor him has a listed email address.

    I did not see him selling a Yaesu 857.

    Was his listing on QRZ ?

    Currently there is nothing on QRZ that matches the info you have provided. You could contact QRZ Customer Support and ask them if they know anything.

    But was it actually a QRZ ad that you had responded to? Or were you contacted directly by someone that offered you a deal you could not refuse? Those kinds of situations often go sideways.

    Yes it was definitely on QRZ. It is the only place I look for used gear. His email address was listed on the ad as

    The guy just told me “sold and took off” when asked where did the ad go.
    I’m not saying this was a rip off. It may be all legit but I withdrew my paypal payment.

    Turns out this was a scam ad using a compromised account. Hopefully, you used PayPal or a check you can cancel. The ad has been removed and the N4BXB account has been suspended.
    Sorry for any inconvenience.
