    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
    First PayPal transfer was to (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

    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.
