    I recently sold 2 Kenwood meter sensors to John Sickles, KT5OT for $100 via QRZ. 2 perfectly working sensors. He is claiming they do not work and wants $50 (half the price) back and wants to keep the two sensors.

    If these were legitimately damaged, any "normal" person would simply send the items back for a full refund. I suspect his is scamming me and apparently has scammed others with parts-swapping and partial refund / keeping the item type of behavior. At minimum he is negotiating a "price" after the fact.

    Avoid KT5OT, John Sickles in Fort Smith Arkansas. He claims to run a business Ham Radio Parts. I am not the only one he has tried to scam with this tactic.

    See this thread on QRZ for more details:

    I am requesting the original items back and gladly give a full refund, rather than a partial refund and he keep the items. I have micro-dotted the circuit boards of the sensors and will report here if the sensor board or entire sensor was "swapped out" .

    Stay tuned...

    Funny you mention it.

    I received a package that was not addressed to me but came from you as your “ham radio parts business”. Is this the way you behave when caught ? Your lack of maturity knows no bounds.

    I’d guess your days as a ham trader are numbered. At least here on QRZ ..

    But do tell us John, as a 55 year old, how many other hams have you attempted to scam with your immature tricks?

    You should know better ...You’re busted, admit you’re not ham quality and move on to another hobby and message board .... I also sent these details to PayPal so hopefully they can shut you down.

    Ps. using the US mail fraudulently is also a crime.

    Incredible how immature a fellow ham could be in sending a package addressed like it was.
