    This is what I'm selling: MFJ 959B ANTENNA TUNER, SWL, WITH PREAMP

    This is the email I received:

    I am interested in this; Is this a working auto tuner? Jim KN4SLI

    Anybody knows that what I'm selling is NOT a AUTO TUNER.

    Guess what? No email on there QRZ page. That's the first red flag for me.

    Be Careful Boys!!

    I'm not sure if it is a scam or just someone unfamiliar with the product, hence the question. I don't really see that the call has been hijacked, although it may have been, but it just looks like a question to me.

    What email address did they use to send from and ask you to reply to? It's easy enough to check stuff out and get some notion of what might be going on

    KN4SLI licensed earlier this year, may not know enough about said item.

    Seems premature for such claims.
