    I responded to PURCHASING an Icom IC-746PRO in a legitimate thread this week (see my previous thread about Michael Mariani in Scammer section) and got another fake email this time pretending to be KE4OTT from ke4ott@gmail.com:

    These scammers are now looking at qrz profiles that have NO email address registered with their profile. He also sent me a picture of a dirty Icom IC-746, not a PRO. Noticed he mentioned buying an antenna, then discusses a radio instead.

    The pictures (attached) do not seem to show up on a google images reverse image search, but using IrfanView you can view the EXIF comment data and it mentions "Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2" so these are pictures that were ripped from old ebay auctions.

    Good find on the EXIF. Firefox has a plugin that I use that shows the same thing.

    I sent this:
    And naturally, I received this as a reply:
    Again a money order to a sister. I don't know where to report this, but I am willing to report it as fraud to the proper authorities if someone can tell me where to do so.
