    On May 3rd W2NER of MYRTLE BEACH, SC advertised a Yaesu FH-2 for sale which I bought and paid for using Paypal. The item was shipped the same day and a Fed X tracking number was provided. That tracking information showed it was delivered on May 7th to some address in Mentor, OH. The problem is I live in Highlands Ranch COLORADO. So apparently someone else is in possession of my paid for item. A claim with Fed X has been filed so hopefully there will be some resolution and I will either receive the item I bought and paid for or a refund for the wrongly addressed shipment.

    It rather smells like a scam. Find a valid tracking number from your town to anywhere, Take the buyer's money, provide a bogus tracking number, wipe hands on pants.

    So W2NER of MYRTLE BEACH, SC said he shipped to my paypal address. It ended up in Mentor OH. I've never been there, don't know anyone there, have never used an address in Mentor OH. He will only say he shipped it to my paypal address but will not say what specific address he sent to other than some paypal address I know nothing about. I would stay away from this seller unless you have money to burn and don't expect any merchandise in return. Wonder if he has relatives or friends in Mentor. Let him show evidence of where he actually got an address in Mentor OH. It surly was not from my paypal account.

    Investigating him here he looks like there's satisfied customers so I'm surprised he chose to simply ask to have the thread closed by administrator. Guess he does not want to talk about it or allow any discussion while he spends my money. Is that right W2NER of MYRTLE BEACH, SC.

    Sounds like a shipping error. Going by W2NER profile page and ham activity I doubt he is trying to take a fellow ham over a $99 item. Follow up with Fed-ex before jumping to conclusions.

    Since the previous thread on this topic was locked (by me) but the buyer feels the need to start another, so be it. That thread was not in the appropriate place, as it was in the Swap Meet section. So fine to start it here if it must be.

    But QRZ does NOT get involved in such disputes - does not "take sides". This must be a discussion between the buyer and seller. And posts cannot be deleted....

    Tread carefully - your words are written in ink, so to speak.

    Both parties need to think long and hard before posting further

    My advice: give it some time to sort itself out. But that's just me

    A guy with the bucks he's got doesn't need yours!
    Check out them cars!

    You sure you were dealing with the REAL @W2NER ?

    Are you sure that neither he nor you have transcribed the tracking number incorrectly?

    It looks like he told you the PayPal shipping address was different than your QRZ address before he shipped and you told him to ship it to the PayPal address. It looks like someone got into your PayPal account and changed things. Is that what happened? Would you mind giving us an update?

    I do not not know where he got his information.
    I use my paypal account regularly both before and since the transaction with the seller W2NER of MYRTLE BEACH, SC. and have NEVER had a problem with my paypal address.
    All merchandise I have ordered using my paypal account has arrived at my official paypal listed address which is correct and has never been changed.
    He would not show any evidence to show where he obtained the shipping address he used.
    The address shown for me on is exactly the same as the address in my paypal account.
    Just where exactly did he get the address he shipped to is a mystery to me.
