Re: What hgappened?

The answer. The AL-800 eventually got re-posted again, however the price jumped up 400.00. I responded again to the ad. I was advised that he had seconds thoughts about his pricing and decided that he was selling the amplifier too cheap. Maybe he should think things over before posting a price that ...

Re: What hgappened?

If you were buying a car, would you ask how old AND WHAT'S THE MILEAGE?

Re: What hgappened? N3YV

The reason I didn't call him was, I asked him in the beginning how old the amplifier was. He said three years old. That seemed too good to be true. That was a super deal. So when we were ready for payment, I said when you get ready to put the tubes in the shipping box, tell me what the date codes on...

Re: Scam ?

I got exactly the same email on an item I was selling. Have a little fun, respond and let them mail you the phony check. It will be for more than the item you are selling. He/she will ask for the difference back immediately, before the check clears. I have a nice collection of checks. Kinda like QSL...

Re: W6RU TERRY OUTSTANDING TRADER

Terry is the greatest. I bought a Henry 4K Ultra from Terry. When I put a load on the 3CX1500A7 I noticed a little fall off on grid current as I did a key down. I was casually talking to Terry on the land line and I mentioned that. I was not asking for another tube. Next thing I know is a real nice ...

Re: ..............Beware.................

As an Ex Las Vegas police officer, I am saying, there is no victim. There was no transaction made. The only person that could complain, would be the ham that was impersonated. Even that charge would have to be proven. I'm sure he doesn't want to go to court in Las Vegas. He would have to file a comp...

Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

That's great news. PayPal has a lot of safeguards. I would be REAL curious to know if PayPal took any losses. In other words, did the scam work for Derek? He went through a lot of BS for a few bucks. Bob

Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

I didn't say I purchased it in September. See how you fabricate. It also included a 3-500Z spare. So you are one of those guys that says the checks in the mail and waits to see how it goes down when he does not get the check. Doesn't make since to me. If you sell to this ham, and he says the checks ...

Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

In reference to the last posting, you make a good point only after the fact. Sure, we all knew there was a problem when his posting stayed up. Most had already acted by then. He was only a tech. class, but it was a relatively new call sign. He could have upgraded. Why did you offer him a check, you ...

Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

This Crap never seems to stop. Not that it helps the guys that got screwed but a little common sense goes a long way in protecting yourself from these jerks. You have to realize that people just don't sell $1000 radios for $650. This guy capitalized on good old American Greed and it should be a les...

Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

I always thought you were safe with PayPal. Please follow up in a reasonable period of time and tell us if PayPal refunded your money. This is a clear cut case of fraud. I wouldn't take this lightly if I were you. Very best of luck. :(

Re: Derek Halvorson KB6RDI

I responded to the AL-800 as soon as he posted it. I said I would take it. He said I will call you this evening. Like you said....no communication could be made with him after that. I didn't get a chance to buy it. To answer your question, normally PayPal does not give funds to the seller right away...

Re: KB6RDI Derek Halvorson Scammer

He is doing the same thing with an AL-800 which is currently posted on QTH. He is also on Eham with postings. Maybe he's trying for a grand slam?

Re: PAIR OF SCAMMERS KF7HPT and KV7L

I have to assume you have read "Joe's" posting. The words "new" "just out of the box" "only checked out etc". Nothing about "old stock". What a perfect catch 22 these two concocted. Joe says you can't blame him, he was selling it for Lynn. Lynn says you can't blame me, Joe wrote the ad. I had NEVER ...

Re: PAIR OF SCAMMERS KF7HPT and KV7L

I knew he would post some BS. Please look at the ad. I posted the ad because KF7HPT "Joe" said he would try and make me look like a fool if I pursued the bad transaction. You read the ad and draw your own conclusions. I will post his Emails and show where he promised a reimbursement of monies which ...
