I recently posted that I am looking to buy an Icom 5100A and got two scammers to reply to me.
It is easier to tell when they don't use the reply form that lists their IP.
The first one was Curtis J Bisesi <email@example.com> who is already reported on this forum. The price he was selling it for was below the price I was looking to buy it and was too low to be true.
The second scammer identified as Dan Smart <firstname.lastname@example.org> who used the call sign KC3GKH and copied the entire description of the radio + price from this ad: http://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads ... es.552234/
Obviously both are not really the hams behind the names and call signs involved, just scammers posing as them.
For reports of scammers using other people's callsigns. Remember that any callsigns listed in this forum are likely innocent bystanders (subjects of identity theft) and, thus, are probably not guilty of anything. For bad transactions with verified ham operators, use the Feedback Forum instead.
