In October of last year my ad for a certain type of radio was answered by a person claiming to be Steve Crain, K7AAQ. His email was firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone number 480-378-9177. I was directed to send payment to Dorothy Jean Henderson, 200s 12th Ave, Apt B, Mayodan, NC 27027. Ms. Henderson was supposed to be the daughter of a silent key. Crane supposedly was helping her sell the equipment. I sent Postal Money Orders totaling $1200 to Ms. Henderson. I have copies of the money orders showing where she cashed them. The radio never arrived and I became unable to reach Crane or her. I am reporting this hoping to save someone else from getting scammed. Local law enforcement has all the information and is pursuing the case. God Bless all my Ham Brothers and Sisters!
