    Sold W1EFT a Ten-Tec 645A Ultramatic keyer, via Ebay, when Paul revived it, he immediately returned it, with out contacting me, when the package shows up, it's not the same one I sold him. different face plate, modified cables, mine had a single RCA plug the recived one had two on them, and the screws on the back showed that the unit had been opened.

    He used the Ebay account P.J.Layne to purchase the gear

    How do you know it was W1EFT that you dealt with on eBay? Did you ship it to the address listed on QRZ? Who's P.J. Layne?

    Maybe there's something to this "no returns due to parts swappers." :eek:

    BINGO. I had it happen to me. Stole all the tubes, got a full refund, and I got to pay to ship the stripped chassis back home.

    Let's just say that I'm skeptical you were dealing with the REAL W1EFT

    How did he pay you for the item? If Paypal are you laying out your defense to them. The way he did it Paypal might side with him thinking he did send the item back but I don't know how that works when he just returned it without opening a case. If he opened a case you would have been informed. If Paypal I would be talking to them as long as they would listen to my side of the scam.
    That is my thoughts

    His account on here is unmanaged with no contact email and he has never posted on QRZ. So it's unlikely you were actually dealing with him.

    Did you send the keyer to the address listed on QRZ or a different address?
