    WARNING

    I was just contacted by this person offering to sell me a KX3. All the information that WV4M listed in his original post matches.

    Thanks WV4M for saving me from being a victim as well.

    Hey thanks for sending me the mail about the scam. I wanted to let everyone know that I don't use my callsign let alone use my license for anything. I got my license for a grade in my class. If you see anything for sale using my callsign, it's not me. Sorry about that

    Thanks for posting this. Kelvin, the useless idiot, just emailed me trying to scam me for a FT530, as I had posted I was looking for one in another thread.

    It pays to do a Google search before replying to unsolicited emails, folks :)

    The best rule is to never ever click or reply to any unsolicited email or message, no mater how good it looks or sounds.

    In my opinion, the folks posting wanted adds are just asking to get ripped off, it happens here every day. The scammers are professionals and are very good at what they are doing.

    If they don't get you today they will get someone else. All you need to do is just sit back for a few days and watch the posts here. It is the same thing over and over again and again.

    Good luck to everyone,
    73, Lisa

    I tend to agree.
    some people try to "save" a (very) few dollars by using the "friends" option on PayPal.

    Perhaps it's just karma.
