Posted an ad that I was looking for a meter board for a Drake MN-2000. Received the following reply a number of days later: "Hello I have for sale 73 reply back if still interested thanks" It was not signed with any name, very short, no callsign, using the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org I was suspicious immediately at the start, did my own search for a callsign to match with the name....FCC database says KD0FJQ is cancelled and W0NU is the current call. In either case, no valid email is on the QRZ.com profile. I note that a ham of this name was the beneficiary of a ARRL scholarship and mentioned in a news item.....could be where the scammer lifted his name and maybe created a profile for him on QRZ? I replied to the email asking for details, photos, ask price, payment terms, etc.....and asked the writer to give his callsign. What I received in reply was (very short): "What i have is the Drake MN-2000 Tuner not working I think the power ic went burnt What can you offer me for it." Email didn't answer any of my questions, no photos....trying to get me to buy an entire dead (probably fictional) Drake MN-2000 when all I want is the meter board. Also I liked the comment about the "power IC went burnt". Avoid.
