Alaska

I`ve put on ads here, and as always I mentioned "shipped to N.A."
That meant that I paid shipping anywhere in N.A.
I shipped to Alaska, and it didn`t cost that much more.
A few bucks more won`t kill me, and it makes for another happy ham.
All CONUS means to me is that I am not buying...

Same here.
Everytime I have sold something, always on QTH.COM, I held the PMO until I received a email from the buyer telling me everything is fine.
Seems logical to me.

You could be right, Larry, but the wording in this case is the same as that used in all the scams where someone wants to buy the "item", wants a final price, etc.
Looks like a computer, to me...

In my opinion, it is a SCAM, and the money order will be bogus.
Just look at the wording......

And just to make sure that peanuts and bits of foam don`t end up everywhere inside rhe rig, I first insert it in one of those fantastic plastic rectangular bags with zippers that are used to package bedspreads and other bedroom linens.
They come in a variety of sizes.
Never had a complaint...

The way I read what N4ATS wrote is that "trading in person only" means that you limit yourself to your immediate area.

Too bad if the person who needs your trade lives 500 miles away... :(

I think that although VA3UT is a valid callsign in any listing, VA3UT/W1 is not!
In fact, it isn`t a callsign at all...

There is an ad posted today number 632602, by the same guy.
Is it the real or not K4TIT?????

If it`s the scammer, why isn`t he blocked from posting ads?

Interpol is not the right place.
In the US, it`s the Secret Service that takes care of the Nigerian scam, so I suppose that it`s the same thing for this one.
Try their web site for the procedure.

I, for one, have NEVER asked anyone to help me save money by lying on a custom formula!
And I never will.
I live in Canada, and go by the laws of the land.

And special tarriffs on ham equipment let us save a good part of the custom duties.
Federal sales tax would still apply, though.
