    Please be aware that someone out there is trying to use my callsign N4URW to sell radios. One of them was a FT-990 and one was for a ICOM PRO II or PRO III. I do not own either of these radios to sell. They also were able to hack my account and change my email address. If I can be hacked so can you so be very careful when buying or selling ham gear. I was able to change my password and change my email address back to the correct email address.

    Maybe we should all be checking our pages daily. I also added a disclaimer stating I'm not currently buying or selling.

    As uptight as the moderators are on this website, you would think that they would get right on this recurring problem and correct it pronto!

    They're doing the best they can I'm sure.

    We need to protect OURSELVES. Just like in the olden days.

    With all the listings on this site and others like it, it's up to us to do our part dealing with these scumbags. The administrators of all of these sites keep busy with more than just the buying and selling part.
    I've been scammed and had my call hijacked. We need to be aware of this issue report the scammers to the admins. I don't see it going away any time soon.

    I am not here 24/7, neither are the other Moderators.

    I am moving this to the correct forum.

    Keep Vigilant and aware, we can not find all the bad guys alone. We have to look out for each other too.

    I would just be thankful this site has excellent moderators. I think the staff here on QRZ.COM do an excellent job, how do I know you ask, I have had my hand slapped on here and it wakes you up to read the rules and guidelines. Just my 2 Cents... 73
