Scammer Using W8EK

This does not match the email address listed on W8EK's QRZ.com profile. Here is the response: The response is from: Name: Ken Simpson Calls...

NS7Z - I do not recommend

I purchased a Bird 43 wattmeter from Larry Leathers, NS7Z. It arrived on time but it was not in the condition he described. He said he bought it from Bird 7 years ago and never used it. He included pictures of a meter in used but acceptable condition for it's age. Now as I review the pictures with t...

Smooth transaction

I'd also like to note that dealing with Sam was a pleasure. He made no hesitation about his commitment to buy and mailed out a USPS money order without delay.

Thanks Sam!

UR4LTP Recommended

I would like to report that my transaction with Mykola, UR4LTP, went through with no problems. He answered emails promptly and positively. Anyone selling on QTH.COM should not hesitate to deal with UR4LTP.

Thanks Mykola!

I don't mind the phenomenon in one respect. It means that I can buy a piece of equipment for $1000 and sell it a few years later for $950 within an hour of posting the ad. It is worth the small lost if it means I don't have to spend all week bartering with people over email. On the other hand, used ...

This is too good!

KB6OPR has a website (http://www.qsl.net/kb6opr/index.htm). On his website you will read:
I Work For Yaesu USA, as the Amateur Radio Service Dept Supervisor in Cerritos, Ca.
If what you say is true it makes me wonder if that conduct carries over to his job.

I think the moral of the story is to not respond at all to these emails. It sounds like playing along enabled the scammers to victimize others as well.
