    Doesn't sound like an Okie to me neither.

    You put your email address in your reply to the forsale ad making it WORLD-READABLE.

    Sounds like a newbie Nigerian in the scammer world.

    Hmmm, hope not. I bought a hotspot from him, $100. Supposed to be in the mail today. Tracking number looks good...

    If it's a scam the hacker has control of his account because the email matches.

    It looks like @W7CNK was trying to do you a favor and you think it may be a scam? Did you try calling him before posting this?

    I don't think so as I was in touch with the seller and he never paid the seller for it, and the seller never shipped it to him. Basically selling something you do not have. As that saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is not true. I did say "possible".

    OK guys, you are way off base. Lucky (Lester) mailed my purchase when he said he would, arrived in perfect condition, and it works just fine.

    A little poking around reveals that he has been an active ham for a long time, before there was any qrz.com, and has several classic designs t9 his credit.

    so yeah, I think the suspicions in this thread are unwarranted. Please consider making an apology, or a retraction...

    The Power Master II ad is still open so W7CNK probably doesn't have the item to sell to KP2L as he said.
