Sorry.. can't type today.
HEY LOOK! K4RAM has the same radio for sale!! ALWAYS SEARCH GOOGLE IMAGE.
They photoshopped over his callsign.
I went and contacted some of the board members of the club AC0ST listed in his QRZ bio and is a member of. Not one of them responded. Some email addresses listed for board members bounced as well as ones listed on QRZ. Some don't have email addresses listed on QRZ. Scammers next victims?
Did you verify that his "club" really exists?
He may have created a bogus club.
No I didn't but why would someone do such a thing? Does the club website look bogus to you? They posted a 2019 schedule so the website is being updated.

With the information in your most recent posy, 27 Non '19, I have to say that the club is legitimate.
However the bounced emails and lack of responses initially led me to believe otherwise.
I received the same offer from him ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) offering to sell me an ID-51a Plus2 for $175. I reverse imaged searched the pictures he provided and they were from a QRZ ad for the same radio from over a year ago.
Clearly a scammer.
Did you report the email to email@example.com?
I did. Thanks!
