    Peter, KI7JCW, got my letter and he says he is not active in ham radio any longer and is not selling anything. This comfirms that this was a scam.

    I think there should be a thread just to post email addresses of scammers.

    A person claiming to be ki7jcw@gmail.com just contacted me. Is this his real email?

    No. Read the thread. Look at his QRZ bio. No email address. Look at his profile. He states that he owns no equipment and has been hacked.

    I got a message saying he would buy my DVAP asking for my PayPal email address, sent @ 0326CST. Then got an email with the "here is a picture of what I want" without even a hidden URL to a phony QRZ login page that is harvesting user credentials.

    The scam phony link is at http://nut.cc , I reported the abuse and hope to hear back from the site owners.

    An easy to use, searchable database would probably work better for most people.

    Old "Peter" just tried to buy a radio I had listed on QTH. He is persistent.

    Did he contact you regarding one of your forsale posts?

    Old “Peter” is at it again. This time I hate to admit that I let my guard down when received an email saying he would buy something I had listed on qth.com. I responded to his initial email and received a response back with the phony link in it from nut.cc. I’m imbarassed to say I actually clicked on it and tried to log in. Then I just happened to do a good search on the callsign and find this thread. I then went in and immediately changed the password on my qrz.com account. Damn scammers!
