    I received an email today from k6z0.559@gmail (note that the O exchanged for a zero).

    "Eighteen month old ALS-600 amplifier. Includes 10/12 meter mod. This is 100% MINT condition physically and electrically. This is the newest/current model of this great amplifier. It has worked absolutely flawlessly. I have a non-smoking and no pet home. Includes original cartons, manuals, cables, etc. I purchased it new from R&L eighteen months ago. Just upgraded to Expert 1.3K and spend megabucks! Will sell for $1000 plus shipping,thanks and 73"

    The email contained multiple pictures of an ALS-600.

    The text is a rip off of this thread:

    I think it was a typo from rushing to post?? If you read the text it states one uses a zero, the other uses an O
    k6zo vs k6z0....
    scammer used a Zero instead of an O like you would find in somebodys call...

    Not exactly. The real one is 599, the imposter is 559.

    Nope one is "599" and the other is "559". Very clever deception.
