    Posted WTB ad for ICOM IC-910h radio and some guy with hijacked pictures from previous QRZ ad using call sign W7KVT tried to sell me one. We almost got enough to catch him, but he bailed out at last minute. Watch out for anyone that you can't confirm.

    Nice catch.

    I have some bigger hooks if you need some. ;)

    If you use a full featured client like Outlook and Thunderbird, perhaps you can view the full SMTP header details; and we can see the IP address of the person who emailed you.

    Yahoo and gmail webmail will also show email headers.

    How did your post stay up? I posted one today and it was removed as the moderator said that posting a WTB for over $250. was against the rules?

    You probably won't be able to see the sender's IP address. You'll only see that if the scammer is using a typical SMTP client which is unlikely these days.

    He is probably using Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook.com to send and none of them disclose the sender's IP address. The first step in the SMTP trail is just a Gmail, Yahoo or Microsoft address.

    That is true.

    Better chances of getting the machine IP, Is to lure them to this website.

    Even that is not 100% , But a tracer is available. :)

    Anything posted on a Win 10 machine should be easy to track. o_O
