    Answered a for sale ad on QTH and was ripped off by Todd Burnham, KB3SQW. Sent PayPal payment as requested and item was never shipped. Apparently, he has done this before to other honest hams. If you Google his call, you'll see what I mean. BEWARE!!!

    Did you ask PayPal for a refund?

    You need to google his call sign BEFORE you send payment! This could of all been avoided with a little buyer diligence. The good news is if you paid with PayPal you should be covered for a refund. The only exception being the dreaded " Friends and Family" option. Good luck and I hope you get your hard earned money back.

    I recognized the call without needing google. Why did you?

    Due diligence

    Due diligence is the investigation or exercise of care that a reasonable business or person is expected to take before entering into an agreement or contract with another party, or an act with a certain standard of care. It can be a legal obligation, but the term will more commonly apply to voluntary investigations.

    Contact the sysop at He needs to hear from everyone who's had negative dealings with KB3SQW. He's not going to see your complaint here.

    Good for you. Wouldn't hurt to post your experience on QTH also, if you haven't already done so. Several people asked how it went when you filed a complaint with PayPal. Please fill us in.

    Why does not QTH ban the bum from advertising?
