    I had a similar pair knock on my door.

    I was still in my bath robe.

    I cracked my door and told them that I was contagious and they better not come in.

    Haven't had any "visitors" in a long time.

    I have been around to this persons QTH today (01/04/2012) in Thornton, Its a small bungalow in a very nice & quite area, when I knocked on the door I spoke with both people living their, neither have any intrest in Amateur Radio & their are NO ANTENNAS or equipment at their QTH, the name "RAW SHEPHERD" sounds like a porn star, but it is a "SCAMMER" may I suggest its removed from the QRZ data base at the earliest, at least its one less to deal with. Best Regards, Dave.(Near Thornton)

    Thanks for checking this out Dave! If we can help keep even one person from being scammed it is worth it. I thought the same thing about the name.

    These days I have an extra couple of hours here and there to devote to the hobby. I think I will use a few of those hours to do just this....it seems so amusing and in some odd sense, satisfying.

    Thanks for passing this on. I have several unique components I've suddenly realized are important to any rig I "buy" from these jerks.

    By jerking the scammers maybe just maybe they give up scamming hams especially new ones out of their money

    What to do:

    Get request to send money via Western Union

    Send the Western Union reference number, using many letter O number 0 letter I number 1

    When it doesn't work for them accuse them mixing O for0 I for 1 and vice versa

    when it still doesn't apologize and say you sent them the receipt number instead of the reference number

    Did you ever see Abbot and Costello's "Whose on First " routine

    See how many times you can get them to go to the WU office

    Or 'accept' the over amount check but send a brick freight collect
