Scammer Report

Does anyone know how to contact the REAL W9YVI as I just had someone posing as him try and run a scam on me. Asked for Pictures with his Call sign next to My Icom 7410 that I am selling here. I took the picture with a N5OU QSL card and printed on it "is going to sell W9YVI" and sent it to him along ...

UPDATE

I received a money order today from Philip Rivera for $300. This is after a final verification that he would not issue a full refund. I am now moving on and am ordering the top cover and speaker so as to donate the radio. I consider this matter closed, however; in no way do I feel that this started ...

Off the Mark

I agree with Paul that those remarks simply do not fit. While I am by no-means wealthy, I was raised to believe that you always take care of your obligations first. You also represent yourself honestly. Advertising something for sale here on QTH is an extension of who and what you are. Mis-represent...

Philip Contacted Me

Last night I received an email from Philip asking me if $300 would "put this to rest". I told him I wanted a full refund, but if he was absolutely refusing to do that then I would except a partial refund to restore the radio. He states he is sending payment today. I will update if I receive it. Rich...

Philip Rivera's Request

To be absolutely as fair as I can be, I took the radio back out of the box, got my High Definition Camera and took some pictures of the full radio as Philip Requested in his post in the sunlight under the best possible conditions. I am not sure they turned out exactly as he had hoped for but I will ...

Philip Rivera

His post continue to leave me speechless. He acknowledges in his email last night at 6:09 pm that he went to the post office yesterday morning and tracked the package to my post office where it was awaiting to be picked up. He acknowledges that I actually picked it up at 2:27 pm. Then he comes on he...

Update

Philip has now gone to "another swap forum" and posted the following statements. "Richard has had the radio for a week now". Again this is simply not true, I signed for it last night from USPS and will post a copy of the dated receipt on my website. He then accuses me of damaging the radio myself an...

Ref: w0bkr comments

Thank you for the insight. I agree that normal wear would have been a more appropriate listing. However, I would not have even given the ad a second look as that was not what I was looking for. This is not about the price or getting a partial refund. This is about Honesty and "Hams taking care of Ha...

Pictures

These photos are not the best quality and were taken with my iphone just a few minutes after receiving the radio last night. I have decided to un-pack the radio again today and take High Definition photos to rebuke the (no-rust) comment Philip made above. HD photos will be up shortly. I believe a cl...

Lets correct the record

The greatest thing about email is that there is a written record. Philip writes in his post that he sent pictures to me prior to the purchase, that is simply not true. I have the entire email thread which I will now post on my website. He then states I should take a picture of the overall radio, I h...

Serial number

Thank you for the suggestions Paul. Pictures speak a 1000 words don't they. The radio serial number is 16827, I have done a search in this forum looking for a stolen report and have not seen any, If someone else knows anything about this radio I would appreciate a PM. I will expand my search to othe...

KM4OP (Philip Rivera) You Decide

The Add # was 782009 Heading: ICOM- IC-706MKIIG NEAR MINT WITH REMOKIT > Ad Message: LOWER PRICE.... NEVER MOBILE ICOM IC-7...

W8JN "the way trading should always be"

Paul answered a want-ad that I placed here on QTH. I was looking for an Ameritron AL-1500 that had to be perfect. Paul called me on the phone and was very generous with his time and answered all my questions. Payment was sent and the shipping details were sent to me by both Paul and his wife. Every ...
