Possible Scam

A guy on QTH posing as a new op, wanting "cheap" gear except what he is asking for isn't exactly "cheap". Dropped him an email with some pointed questions and of course, never responded. IP address doesn't match his QTH per ULS. KM6DHG. Callsign is also unmanaged, another flag. So, just be careful. ...

Headache

I recently was contacted by an Op that I thought would be an easy transaction. Usually, they are. Instead, this turned into one big headache. K8MAB contacted me about a like new radio I had for sale, and wanted pics beyond what I had posted. Okay, I sent them. Then he asked about the model number wh...

Re: I don't get it.....scratch scratch of the head....

No one said you were a scammer or anything negative in that regard. Your behavior about wanting the expedited shipping ahead of even receiving the payment is considered by most folks a bit off. It certainly isn't the norm and no one I have encountered thought it was either. The constant emails and b...

Re: I don't get it.....scratch scratch of the head....

Well, this guy to me, seems off in the head. Pestering us to send the radio way before his payment got here, telling us about "he had one in his earlier ham days and really wanted to set it up", blah blah blah. Just to get him to leave us alone, after his payment got here, XYL shipped it then and th...

No scam or rip off but what a pain this has been and all for what??? Here is one to try and figure out.

Don't really want to turn this into a discussion forum here. No, I never said I knew Allen Peters and no doubt, this clown from UAE highjacked his call.

Sorry he scammed you. Fortunately for me, I never sent anything money, hardware, NADA as I suspected as such he was a fake. The real Allan Peters does a lot of boating, etc. and I seriously doubt would go to the UAE. I would follow up with PP and pressure them to send your funds back (if that is the...
