I responded to an ad on QRZ for a IC718 being sold by AL1H. I looked up his records on QRZ and he had many sales under his belt and he was taking Paypal, which I thought was an added layer of safety. But as soon as I had sent the money the ad page disappeared and when I went to Paypal the money didn't go to the address I sent it to, but to a different one. Now no one answers my emails. Here is the cached page I ordered from; https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/icom-ic-718-hf-transceiver.594592/#post-4513879 I'm an old man it's easy to fool me, I saved up a year to buy a radio and now a thief has my money. I thought I took all the precautions, I followed the swapmeet rules. My advice to others is when the thiefs can fake everything on a website, it's time to stop buying from these sites.
