    Person contacted me looking to sell a Kenwood tm-742a !

    He used the above call with gmail.com. Sending me pictures of radio with 2mtr 1.3 and 70cm displayed on radio. I asked him was that the radio bands and he keep insisting it was 6mtrs, 2mtr and 70cm.

    I felt something was wrong and went looking for the images of 742a on net. I found the same photo of a radio that AA4R was selling back in 2015 but it was cropped not showing his QSL card.

    He wanted me to send the money 350.00 by PAYPAL but when I checked it came up as Michael Lewis@gmail.com making more more hesitant.

    I would have like to send KI7JCW a email but he has nothing listed here

    They are stil out there in full force

    I hope neither of you used "Friends and Family" did you?

    PayPal has put a hold on the transaction and I am going to contact my bank first thing Monday when they open. PayPal said he did not get my money YET! I have to get my bank involved though to seal the deal of not letting the fraudster get my money.

    :(

    I'm so sorry. You will likely have NO recourse from Paypal. He was not your friend, nor was he family.

    Boy was he not your friend or family!!
