I'm grateful for the hams who posted warnings about K1RES, probably saved me a lot of grief. I was suspicious when his email name firstname.lastname@example.org in no way reflected his call sign or name "Robert Spero" in California. His response came only minutes after I posted the ad and suspiciously did not request any further information, pictures, etc. on the unit. The check of his IP came up with a Texas location, not California. Other scam posts for him with similar checks shows his IP bopping around the US.
