    Apparently someone is scamming myself and my buyers.
    I have several items for sale on QRZ and QTH

    This scammer creates an email address similar to mine and then begins an email conversation with the new buyer. He instucts them to senf a PayPal payment to the false adress. When received he then apparently deletes the account. I am told by the victim that PayPal is investigating.

    My email is the FALSE ADRESS is (Note the double u.)

    Here's what we need to do if you are buying any K9BOJ Items.

    1- Communicate as normal on email...
    2- I will create a secure link to my account with a certain "code" you provide me. (Any combination of numbers and letters)
    3- I will then send you a secure Link for PayPal containing that code. ONLY respond for Payment to this link.

    CHECK the SPELLING of all destinations addressing. One letter off can capture your payment!!!!

    I trust this will help us to avoid this scammer who is pretending to be me.

    Anothe email he had been using is

    Take care and look out for this dishonest jerk!

    N7FX Ham Member QRZ Page is the PayPal address of the scammer posing as K9BOJ. Do not send any payments to this address.

    I would also recommend that you put some information in your QRZ BIO at the top of the page as well. Maybe post a link to this thread for instructions.

    Good idea, but I intend to change the link for each sale. Doesn't matter to me who sends the payment, but it is likely each buyer will be more comfortable with a link that is unique to the buyer.

    Yes I agree, you need to ad the information to your bio page as suggested by Jeff WR2E. This should be one of the first things that you do to help solve the problem.

    Please look at the bio page below for an example.

    I got one last night from nunnu @ claiming to be a ham in Virginia AG4GL. I cannot upload picture but he said he saw my post here.

    I’m never going to get a decent first HF rig, haha

    This is interesting. I have been supposedly emailing AG4GL about purchasing a radio and he wanted me to send the money to his sister in NE. At first he only would accept a USPS MO. But since it has taken me a couple of days to get to the postoffice, he just provided the nunnu email address for a PayPal payment..
    The name of the ham in the email matches the qrz page but interestingly the qrz page does not include an email address. which means it could be anyone posing as AG4GL.

    Was it the 857D and tuner? That's what he tried to sell me using same call sign. I have a screen shot but it says it's to large. I seen on paypal it said money would be in euro's if I sent. Huge red flag but I searched paypal address he gave me and sure enough scam alert.

    Someone nearby should goto that address and ask to see the 857.
