    The ad for Icom IC7300 from N9MQN is a scam. I called John he does not have any equipment for sale.
     
    AC0TX, KA2FIR, N9LCD and 1 other person like this.

    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 john.gibbons526@gmail.com

    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??

    This/these scumbags are trolling QRZ ads. Wonder if QRZ can/does block IP addresses/ranges.
