    I know QRZ is already aware, but a warning none the same:

    I am looking for Yaesu DMU-2000 abroad (as they are not that common in Denmark). I was approached by mail by a guy presenting himself as Charles R Young.
    Dialogue went fine, he sent a few photos and terms for payment and shipping was agreed upon. This is then where things start getting interesting....

    Initial contact was from af4wh.c@gmail.com
    First PayPal transfer was to charles00400@outlook.com (which points to an Ashlin Wills and was returned immediately - I guess it was because I chose the "business" option)
    Then he asked for transfer to his business mail ham4young360@outlook.com

    Same second I did the last transfer, I remembered that QRZ has a scam-alert, and... the same call came up.

    I blocked my transfer immediately and requested further proof of identity from this individual, but he has maintained "radio silence" ever since.
