    A scammer claiming to be NM8T Steven White has been sending unsolicited emails, claiming to have what you just happened to be looking at on QRZ.

    Uses CLEARLY photoshopped images. Using email which is NOT on the real NM8T's page. See the other thread nearby for my email exchange with him.

    Just got this minutes ago from W9CAD with the 309 area code. One of the usual suspects.

    "This is a direct mail regarding the ICOM 2720 which I had

    and obviously found out you were in need of.

    Contact me if still interested either by mail

    or call/text +1 309 795 6600"

    Well, you can't really determine if it is a scam or not. He is not on our radar.

    If it is something you are looking for, demand pictures with his call sign in the picture. If you get some, look to make sure that they are NOT digitally induced into the picture. Not too hard to spot most times. Check his terms of payment. If he wants PayPal Family and Friends, Western Union or a direct bank transfer, run the Hell away!

    I did not call because the ad was really me selling the 2720 NOT as the e-mail implies that I wanted to buy one. The word pattern, sentence structure plus the fact that this call has been associated with a prior scam attempt (read the prior material on this thread) led me to determine that this is a scammer. Further, the area code is not in WI where the real call is shown to be located on QRZ. The FCC ULS dB shows Juneau, WI 53039 as the actual city for the call. The call is active and good until 2022.

    Could some of these poorly written and thought out responses be the output of a robot that reads and replies many times with a small percentage success rate?

    If it walks like a duck...etc and I add, profiles like a duck......

    Anyway, beware, or not. caveat emptor as Wayne G would say.
