    Lookout for an Icom 7851 and a pair of matching SP-34 speakers being put up for sale by KC9OET. A scammer is using that callsign. He got a full set of photoos of my station while posing as a serious buyer.

    RE: KC9OET scammer:

    I sent a legitimate seller a reply on one listed on QRZ swap yesterday (which I bought), and scammer boy sent me an email....

    Then tried to sell me an ALS-500MR today for $600, I played him along but it was easily apparent this person IS a SCAMMER! He
    sent me his PayPal ID:
    ylouise54@gmail.com

    BEWARE!

    KC9OET tried to scam me last week, in a wanted ad. Gave me one paypal address then changed mind to send to another address. Look out for this individual!!!

    I just got scammed by this guy. He is now using the N7ESU callsign. Luckily I used PayPal goods and services so hopefully I can get a refund....after 30 days...

    He almost got me too!! Replied to my WTB ad on eHam. Said he had a K3/0 mini for $430. I offered $380. He accepted. I then did a search on the call before sending Paypal payment to ylouise54@gmail and found your comment. THANK YOU!!!

    Your email address is published in your QRZ bio making it WORLD-READABLE. Only users logged in can see your email/mailing address in your QRZ callsign data.

    Excellent that you did your due diligence before sending payment!

    That's also his PayPal account. Really living dangerously.

    I cant believe this, after all the hassle of me being hacked with somebody using my call sign, I just got a e-mail from somebody using KC9OET wanting to buy something from me (which I am not selling anything) and wants me to click on a link to see what it is, which I am not doing....I think this guy has to much time on his hands and needs to be......
