    I sold my IC-820H on eBay to Kent Lui KA6TC and got email from Carlos PY2HT to send the radio directly to Brazil.

    I responded to his email and insisted to send the radio to his friend in CA who actually purchased the radio.

    "Carlos, I see that Kent Lui KA6TC purchased this for you. I can ship this radio to him.
    TNX, Jovan KB9K"


    All of this sounded like a perfect scam setup. I contacted Kent Lui, KA6TC and just after few min of conversation we realized that his Yahoo email has been hacked. This is how "Carlos" got the info that he purchased the radio.

    Hope I can save someone else with this info.
    73 to all, KB9K
