    I was advised of a scam using my call sign. Any emails from are FRAUDULENT and are not from me. That is not my email address. Also I do not use for my paypal address. I have reported these events to the authorities but please do not interact with this person.

    I posted this under caution to begin with. I don't want someone ruining my reputation with fraud.

    Scammers use the call signs of QRZ members who DON'T have their email address available in their profile. You can help prevent this sort of thing by adding your email address to your QRZ page.

    Please tell us you didn't use Friends and Family even after all the warnings posted by others about not being covered for fraud if you do it that way in order to rip PayPal off of their fees.
    ( Otherwise you are pretty much S(Censored)d )

    Dennis, you should edit your QRZ bio to indicate that your call is being used to scam and that you aren't selling anything

    Also, if you put an email address on your qrz page the scammers will be less likely to use your call in the future. That's what they look for... seemingly inactive hams on QRZ.

    [edit: I see you just did that... now add a paragraph to your bio as above... it helps!]
