    The scammer using his callsign and that email is well known here. How did he happen to contact you?

    John J. gibbons is still at it. He tried to sell me an Icom IC-8500, with pictures taken from ebay, with a fake serial number. He replied to me directly instead of going through the website where I had my ad. He is not too savy as he offered me the IC-R8500 with mic. :) If we report him to goggle, he will just make up a new email address.

    Well, He sent a picture. Asked him for his call sign and pay pal address... He just replied N9MQN wanting My shipping address and says he has a pay pal acct. I asked him to call me and go over the details, This is where it will probably end..

    KA2FIR is right. Report the scammers' email and PayPal accounts. It'll slow them down and maybe they'll leave QRZ alone if we all so our part.
    Also, if we all would use Conversation or email to ask questions or indicate interest in a For Sale item, the scammers would have very few targets.
