    Got a reply to a wanted ad from someone posing as W6NIK, Nicholaus, offering up an 857D for sale.

    Good info from QRZ on Nicholaus:

    Scammer email:

    Scammer offered to accept paypal offer for an 857D to this paypal address:

    So naturally I emailed the good email on W6NIK's profile... he has no 857D for sale.

    I owe you, Brad!

    I was doing my second round of scam checks for this sale (Yaesu 6m rig) and saw your post. Nearly got me for $200.

    The 6m "Brotherhood" regard the Yaesu FT-690RII as the best dedicated 6m rig ever designed, and to have a Scammer sully it with his dirty schemes really drives me to a homicidal rage.......about as bad as pawning the original Batmobile for drug money :mad:

    I got some good pix out of the deal at least o_O
