That's not what the guy is after, He is breaking down your emails and finding your pass word, it's the best scam going.sparkchaser wrote:My recent experience may be a new scam. Has anyone else run into this.
This individual put a popular radio with some accessories on QTH for sale. I responded to his posting, and we exchanged several emails over several days. He sent me a picture of the "whole package" that I was buying. After several emails back and forth, we had about agreed on a price/trade deal. Then before accepting the deal, I asked for some more pictures up close showing the radio on, and back and side photos. Suddenly he disappeared. No more answered emails, in fact no more of him existed on the web pages. Now, I don't know the story from his side of the table, but it seemed the picture he originally sent was maybe copied from some place else. So I would send him the money, but he had no radio. If this is really the case, I haven't a clue. But it does lend some creditable reasoning to asking for photos of what your buying.
I won't post his call because I don't know for sure if this is what his intention was. I would suggest we all follow good habits and ask for photos of what your about to buy.
