BEWARE: Curtis J Bisesi hdisme455@gmail.com K6CTA

I recently received an inquiry from a person masquerading as "Curtis J Bisesi" using an email address of "hdisme455@gmail.com" and call sign K6CTA regarding a radio I have for sale. The inquiries were peculiar from the start. Once this person asked me to send a photo of the radio including in the photo a piece of paper with HIS call sign on it I knew it was an attempted scam.
Looking on the scammer alert page of QRZ.com, I learned that this scam has been going on for a few years.
Beware of anyone using the alias "Curtis J Bisesi <hdisme455@gmail.com>" in conjunction with call sign K6CTA. K6CTA isn't this person's call sign. This person IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED.

I received a email from this person but he used the call K2WOP, just thought I would add this into the mix

He started contacting me 4/3/17 to my (very old) listing for an IC-718. First email said "I will buy it . Where do i send payment ?". Email 4/4 said: Here is an attached photo of what i want .

qrzlogins.nut.cc and QRZ.com are probably not the same place, and .htm is not an image - ya think?

This individual contacted me after I posted a wanted ad for a radio. Something told me to take a look at the scammers forum and there he was at the top of the list. Thanks QTH for saving me some money and grief.

Looks like this fellow is at it again. Now using the call k2wop. This call is registered to a Curtis J Bisesi on the QRZ/FCC database. However, there is no associated email with the record. The fellow that answered my want is using the hdisme455@gmail.com.
