    I posted a WTB ad on QTH.com and have been scammed. It was my own fault as I did not request enough detail and the seller contacted me directly rather than by responding to my QTH.com post. Do not trust anyone identifying themselves in the following ways:

    Alfredeval001 at gmail.com
    Jenniffer Holmes - JENNYDEANNAHOLMES35 at gmail.com

    I never received the item (Elecraft XG3). I contacted Jennifer who claims she was hacked. I don't entirely understand how the scam works, but I have a claim at the Paypal resolution center and since it was a credit card purchase I should eventually get my money back. Fortunately it wasn't a lot, but enough make me angry about getting taken!

    Good luck in the resolution. I surely hope you did not use "Friends and Family" to send funds - if you did, you'll never get a refund

    Hoping for the best for you
