    There was an ad posted Feb 10, 2018 morning for a KX3, Panadapter and 100w amp with the email, ppkadely19@gmail.com listed in the ad. There was a comment asking for an update in the seller's profile because the email was different than one he had previously used. I sent an email to the address provided with no reply yet. The ad seems to have disappeared from QRZ or maybe I imagined it? If this ad was bogus and removed by moderators, I would like to know so I can ignore any reply I may receive on this ad. Does anyone know what happened?

    Thanks, I will. Just wish I knew why. Here is the call sign lookup:

    I followed this one as I'm looking for a KX3 (regretted selling one I owned!). Everything was suspiciously cheap - a flag for a possible scam.

    Yes, I suspected as much. Too bad the admins can't flag the ads as scams & bring more attention to the problem. I am careful and have never had a bad experience on QRZ but I suspect others may not be aware of how big the problem is. If there was something visible to show how many ads have been removed as suspected scams, we all might be even more cautious.

    There were red flags all over that ad David. All previous listed ads from that call sign used an AOL account. The scammer changed the email address to a Gmail account. The true owner of the call sign was contacted and he did confirm that the ad was bogus.

    To all that took time to reach out to me about bogus AD on various web sites, Thank You! Since 1964 I have been servicing Hygain Rotors. I pride myself in honest service to Hams. My guarantee is moneys back if unhappy. Since I started servicing over 3700 Hygain units have been thru my hands. My profit is small. My effort is very large.

    For those that have gotten hurt by the scammer, rest assured these people will be found. The email used is not my email address. Since there is fraud thru the mail, its become a federal offence. Paypal has made or started to reimburse 2 transactions from the fraud email. Sorry that someone took the time to defraud you. You will be reimbursed. Peter

    Last week I purchased a FT-200o from W2HP, Peter but the
    rig has never arrived yet and he will not answer my emails.

    I just sent and email to W2HP@arrl.net and hoping there is
    some shipping error and I have not been RIPPED OFF!

    I paid in full of course...OMG...This is too much.
