    Hi All,
    I just dodged a bullet and want to warn everyone. I received an unsolicited offer for an FT-100D I have been looking for at the price I wanted to pay from Homero Lozano AB5HL
    We exchanged several emails and I agreed to the deal. I said I ONLY deal with PayPal Goods and services, the person agreed and I paid. This morning I get a full refund and a note that he wants me to repay to his business account. The fish smell grows.
    The refund was issued by Onwuka Peter not the Homero Lanzano I thought I was dealing with. A quick Google of Onwuka Peter and he resides in Lagos Nigeria.

    I doubt Homero Lozano knows his call sign is being used. I tried to contact him, but no email on QRZ and unlisted in Dallas Phonebook. If you know him let him know.

    Ok that looks great. Now anyone that looks you up after getting an unsolicited email message using your call sign will know that the email message is a scam.
