The ad for Icom IC7300 from N9MQN is a scam. I called John he does not have any equipment for sale.
The account was updated on 2-16 but they didn’t add contact info. My guess is they changed the password. Have John contact qrz support and put a disclaimer in his bio.
I got duped by him.
This was the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
I used Paypal Credit with buyer protection. No money came out of my pocket.
I noticed after all of this the timestamp on his emails were 5 hrs ahead of me EST.
Embarrassed to have been scammed.
No disclaimer seen. Did you talk to him about that?
I myself posted a want add for a 2 meter all mode. Received a response from the above posted email. He sent pictures and all seems ok? Paypal was recomended.
But after some research a little skeptical due to a few scam reports online.
Anyone have any input on this??
Sorry I did not talk to John after my call to him. I will find his phone number again and give him a call. I just found you query 4/7/2018
This/these scumbags are trolling QRZ ads. Wonder if QRZ can/does block IP addresses/ranges.
