    Purchased complete vintage station for nearly $1000 with personal check. Rig arrived poorly packed and damaged. Also, receiver nearly deaf due to four broken coil cores on circuit board. Equipment was described as “perfect condition.” Seller would not accept PayPal and has not responded to email. Advice?

    Filing mail fraud might be the only recoure, not that it will probably do any good...

    Did he say "worked great last time I used it" or something like that? :rolleyes:

    Unless there was some shipping insurance probably nothing can be done.

    "Will be packed for safe arrival" is another clue...

    I'm not sure how long it's been but you could try calling your bank and see when and if the check was cashed. He probably wouldn't of sent the radios without the check clearing but hey you never know. Good luck!

    “If you are still interested, I have the AT230 - Tuner, SP230 - Speaker and the VFO230 with the Connecting Cable and KB1 Knob. Each are in perfect working order and appearance. I also have a perfectly restored TS 830s Gold with all the Filters and KB1 Knob as well as a MC50 Microphone. I will sell as a complete station or sell the Tuner, Speaker and VFO together and the TS830s with MC50 microphone alone. Thank you. Paul, KA1GIJ”

    Not that simple l, I’m afraid. I’m out a whole bunch of cash fasciltated by online “buy-sell” websites. Let’s work together to reach a more reasonable plan. QSL?
