    Sellers, beware of this nut case. I know there are more threads on him but he is back at it. Tried to con us out of an HF transceiver. Luckily we intercepted the package otherwise we would have been out of $975. Bad part is we are out of shipping costs.
    Bottom line: DO NOT deal with this guy!!!

    Thank you for this thread. I received a payment from this gentleman, but something just didn't "feel" right so before I shipped the radio I started poking around. He identified himself as not being a ham but studying for his license which may be true. But after poking around, there is a ham by this name with the callsign N0YG who lives in KS (although not in Marion) so something felt off.

    To be fair, it's a common name and all of this may be a conincidence. He may be 100% on the up-and-up,but once I saw this thread and searched for the callsign, I was nervous about the transaction.

    I refunded his payment and told him I'd prefer to deal with a ham whose identity is verifiable.

    I think you did the right thing and probably saved yourself a lot of problems!
    If it does not feel right - It probably is not!

    I did some Google searching on him. I live not to far away from that town but my better judgement after studying him is say I am not going to go to that area and look for him it. Sorry Sir.
