Offered the old $50 over asking they will send a check crap. Despite my stating in the ad paypal or postal money order only. Moron needs to learn how to read because I insulted scammers like him in the ad LMAO

Yes, he’s at it again.
offered me 250usd to hold my Kenwood 990 .
And it’s the cashier check scheme.
He must be editing the QRZ page for WB5JFJ as it was updated in the last week.
Also wb5jfj is in in oklahoma, the ip address in the response from the ad is in Virginia.
i’ll string him along for a bit.

Not sure if WB5JFJ is looking for another customer, didn't make contact for listing #1474824 was interested but found this and other comments, I think I'll pass. Thanks
