    I have read all the rules and understand that this section is not just for radio deals but also dead beats and dishonest people. I have no fear of reprisal as the information posted is honest, substantiated and witnessed by other hams, as well as written documentation that backs up my claims.

    Synopsis: The guy lied to me one day while talking on the local repeater and then calling me (at my request) on the phone and said that he was in rough times and needed money "to eat". This link goes on to fill in all details as to how this ham took $200.00 that I offered him "to help out a guy in need" and then subsequently (the next day) went and used the money to buy a AL-82 amplifier.

    It is folks like this, not only in our hobby but in our population in general that all should be made aware of so they can not repeat that kind of dishonest behavior.
