Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

I almost fell for this too. One thing that I see missing in this thread is that it is most likely an imposter. The phone number is a t-mobile number as is the IP address that 3 of the 4 ads were posted from, the other is a charter cable IP from Riverside, CA, a long way from Stockton. Could be a ho...

Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

Got my refund from Paypal today. My faith in them is still tempered by my last bad experience but all is good on this one. Hope everyone who got scammed also get the refunds coming to them.

Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

To everyone who has been a victim of Derek. File a claim with Paypal, the San Joaquin County Sheriffs office, your CC company if you used a cc and while your at it send an email to Abuse@engineer.com to get his email terminated. Let's turn the heat up on this low life.

Yes I did and from my experiences with Paypal I'm sure it is long gone. I have absolutely no expectation of them doing the right thing. They have a history with me of aiding and abetting thieves.

Dick Tesar WA4WIP Great seller

Dick sent me a knob for a kenwood 440 that the postal service managed to lose and just deliver a torn up envelope. Dick sent out another in the mail the same day he was notified and it got here in great condition. You can't get any better than that.

I wouldn't immediately assume it was a scam. The " above subject stated" line and the references to the "item" instead of ever actually naming what you are talking about would make me proceed with extreme caution though.

Scott does provide an easy way to look up the seller (provided he has a callsign). He has built in a QRZ lookup in the ad. Just one click on the hyperlinked callsign, check the address, and hit your back button and you're back to the ad. My 2 cents worth. Now whether the guys information is updated...

Anybody know Gary Koniewicz N3VWW? I made a small ($12) deal with him. Sent the check on July 23rd. It hasn't cleared yet and Gary doesn't answer my emails. Check cleared or not I'm not worried about the $ but I am curious as to what might have happened to him.

Agreed if something is left out of a deal that should have been there then it should be supplied. But I can't help but ask two questions.

1) What is your call John?

2) What amplifier requires a key to operate?

Just completed a small deal with Dave Vest K8DV. He not only shipped on my word instead of waiting to receive payment he packed the carcass of an old HM-102 like it was a new one. Renews my faith in peoples honesty after a brush with a crook on my last swap. :lol:
