    Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    Sorry to have to report this, but someone is posing as Karl Doody (KE6VDX)
    Whoever it is writes in very poor grammar that they have many different rigs for sale. Be wary and be aware!

    Happy Turkey Day!

    @VE6KDX has also noted this scam on his QRZ profile page. Thanks for reporting this Larry! Seems that the scammers are pretty busy on this Thanksgiving Day.

    Larry, it would be helpful to others if you publish the email address that was used.

    The original email is now not working however, he contacted me a second time using this email:
    gearmthmo@gmail.com

    I had put an ad up for a few rigs I was looking at possibly purchasing… The same guy who was posing as VE6KDX answered all four ads saying he had all of those rigs. That was the first giveaway obviously. Then when I checked VE6KDX’s QRZ Page and saw no email address listed that was the second dead giveaway so as I think a moderator said once before that’s something to look out for on QRZ… To see if there’s an email listed. In this case there wasn’t. It seems that the scammers that are doing this target QRZ members who don’t have email addresses listed. If I recall correctly, the original email he used had “VE6KDX@Gmail.com”

    hope that helps.

    Hi Larry and All on QRZ.

    It seems this scam is still making the rounds and i can assure you has nothing to do with myself. The email address was removed from my QRZ page by myself and if anyone needs to get in touch they can do so through the QRZ message center or my callsign (at) the opposite to coldmail dot com. ;)

    Regards
    Karl.
