No one is calling you a crook, but I think many of these accusing posts are by people who haven't done their due diligence and simply assume they are dealing with whoever someone claims to be. And by the way, an email that also contains a call sign is not in any way a validation. Anyone can do that. I own a domain name and can use any made-up email address I like @ that domain name and it will come to my mailbox. You need to compare it with what is listed on his QRZ.com page, and even that is no guarantee as his account may have been hacked. But if you have verified that he is who he claims to be, then helps for you to say so as you now have.
