    Steven the deception originated in the UK by a lowlife using your call, on that basis you should be reporting it to the police as in effect the lowlife stole your identity to decieve others which is a matter for the judicial system and not QRZ.

    Steven, M3SNV
    You were a victim of identity theft. It can happen to anyone. Most scammers do not seem very technical and are probably not licensed radio amateurs. The scammers are using mostly UK callsigns at this time, however other call prefixes could be used.

    SCAM artists ask for a Western Union payment or want to send the buyer more than the item cost and have the buyer return money to them. The best thing for internet buying/selling is to check out the person carefully. IP, email,street address and phone. Quiz the seller about the technical details. Ask questions that you know the answer to and makeup some of your own questions that you know are incorrect and see if they agree with your bogus question or statement.

    The QRZ addresses are most accurate, however that is not 100%.

    Report it to your authorities and get on with your life.......we know that you are OK.

    I love the replies to ads that state, "I want to buy your item. Please advise the condition and lowest price....etc."

    When all that is right in the original ad.

    These must be sent by spambots who send a reply to anyone listing anything for sale, anywhere.

    What about that horrible spelling and grammar in the ad also ? I would think that in itself would be a tip-off .
