    Guys, beware if you post an ad for wanted or whatever. A scammer using AA3ZP call siign.
    I spoke with the real AA3ZP and he knew of nothing for sale. Beware of this kind of scam,
    The scammer is using AA3ZP@oulook.com. This is NOT the real AA3ZP....
    The Scammers troll for wanted on QRZ and contact you with a ham that doe's not list there call sign on there QRZ page. They make up a fake email and represent themselves as honest amateurs. Always, Always Always BEWARE. If the call sign that emails you is not listed on the QRZ page. If you still think it's a scam,
    Tell them to put the same email address that they emailed you with on there QRZ page. This is a good way of checking. Also. it's not a good idea to take emails seriously that do not go through QRZ. Stick with email that comes only through QRZ.
    We as honest hams gotta stick together and STOP these thieves.

    Perhaps you could get the real AA3ZP to add his email and a disclaimer to his QRZ page?

    he tried it to scam me on the Alpha 9500, who is listed as AA3ZP, with Eric Ryan name at Gmail.com

    When I asked him to call me, he did an 1.5 hrs later, barely speaks English telephone ID says Calf, not Deleware, he had nice pictures of the Alpha 9500, but immediately remove the add once I contacted him.

    Watch out !
