Scammer Alert as "Bob W6XI"

Post by wb4iuy » Sat Jan 24, 2015 3:55 pm

The scammer who was calling himself "Harry Wayne" and going by WA0ELW is now going as "Bob" and using the call of W6XI on the forums. He is still coming from a verizon IP in Wayne, Pennsylvania of . This is the same IP he's used under other callsigns/names. This person is still using the email address of (and same verizon IP).

He just tried to snag me on a part I'm looking for, for an old Gonset amp. Beware!
