    Be wary of unsolicited offer to sell from AC0OF in MS. Call sign seems to check out but offer was to sell a rig and matching tuner at a low price. Payment requested was a money order made payable to his sister. Could be a SCAM.

    Just received an unsolicited email from this scammer who is using AC0OF's callsign and name. Offered a nice KX3 for $950, responding to a post I made to a for sale listing.

    I received an unsolicited email from this person, using the same email address as posted by AJ4GQ. He's offering to sell an Icom IC-7000 (i responded to another seller and [AC0of] emailed me using my QRZ information.)

    Just received an email from ac0of.p@gmail.com today after posting a question in a thread about a FT-891. When you look up AC0OF here on QRZ there is no email listed He offered one for sale with a picture with his call but a quick search of the for sale adds turned up this add:

    This is the same picture he sent me but with the AC0OF call sign photo-shopped onto the QSL card. His email was the text from the above add verbatim....

    Pretty lame when you can still see the original seller's name on the QSL card and it doesn't match the call.

    I asked if he accepts paypal and surprisingly he said yes. I didn't reply and this morning I had an email saying he was still waiting on my response hihi....so why not. I asked him for more pictures with his call sign...Ill play the game until I get bored or he gives up. Maybe Ill offer to pick it up in person....
