    I just made a post wanting to buy a TM=631A or 632A but I ment to post a TM-641A or 642A and I just got a reply from "Jack G4JFS <g4jfs@yahoo.com>"telling me he has a TM-6312A for sale and when I told him that I had ment to posta TM741A and that I was sorry for the mistake he told me he had a TM-741A so I asked about the TM-6312A and he told me he had both, which one would I like to purchase for $570 USD shipped.
    Gee! I wonder which one I should buy since he says they are both tri-band radios 144/220/440 MHz. any sugestions?

    Good grief that was funny! Glad I finally read this thread. Next time I get a scammer on the line I won't get upset I'll just have some fun!

    I just purchased, I think, something from Jack Fitzsimons who also answered my wanted ad on qrz.com. He insisted that I pay through Western Union. The merchandise never arrived. Careful. It may still show up but I think I was taken for 200 dollars.

    What did you buy from this guy? I was lucky that he is not a ham or he might have known that the VHF and UHF bands are different for the USA. He didn't know it and since I was wanting a Kenwood TM-742A tri-bander and he didn't even get the model right because there is no TM-6312A. I also got a message from a man claiming to be ON8DU but ON8DU is aware on some one using his call and posted the information about the scam and even gave a word for word description of what the scammer puts in his emails. I have erased his email or I would have posted it here too.
