    Guy with the e-mail address alanfeathestone16@gmail.com tried to get me. Says he's cleaning out his brother's estate, can't give his callsign, and photos of the gear are obvious downloads.

    Be careful out there. 73!

    I gotta wonder about the mentality of these Asshat Scammers ........they don't seem to be put off by having their game exposed for all to see!

    Ol' Alan just shot me a reply to my WANTED for a 6m yagi, and rolled out the exact same carpet for me as he did to you! Same email, same spiel. Feh.

    Ego the size of a royal palace, has to be. And he needs to perfect his syntax, too.

    Thanks for the warning Phil!!

    As soon as you get these types of emails use spamcop.net to report and get it shutdown.

    Hi Mike,

    Reporting the scammers to spamcop won't do any good.

    The scammers aren't generating UNSOLICITED BULK MAIL which is what spamcop's intended purpose is.

    Alan Featherstone using alanfeathestone16@gmail.com is a scam and I am sorry to say that I fell for it. Then he tried using the name Brent Willaced with email of w5dph.breent@gmail.com trying tyhe same thing. I contacted W5DPH and of course a scammer is using his call sign for fraud. Fool me once........
