    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.
