IN RESPONSE TO A TEN TEC JUPITER LISTED ON QRZ --
Only response I have received from my email to firstname.lastname@example.org is a third party response from what appears to be a scammer. The name on the email is "Prashant Karkare" email@example.com and in the body of the email it says:
"I have for sale a ten tec Jupiter 538at in a perfect working condition. Come with manual , mic , shipping box and cable. Asking $285 shipped. Let me know if you are interested."
This may have been a legitimate offer, but it seems a little "too good a deal" for me to jump right on it. If there is truly the $285 shipped Jupiter, why not list it somewhere instead of hijacking another's sale??? From my latest experiences here, the scams are running rampant on QRZ and many other swap/deal sites!!!
BE CAREFUL !!!
Still awaiting response to my offer email from N1VAU...
Has anyone else received the email from Prashant Karkare ?
Yes. Just got one offering an FTdx3000. I emailed him replying that I had already purchased the radio he undoubtedly found me posting about. He was asking $925 shipped. Interesting scam.
Just to be clear, I have nothing to do with whatever replies you received from "Prashant Karkare". That is a scammer attempting to hijack a legitimate item offered for sale.
