Terry no last name

Post by aj4hk » Sat Aug 26, 2017 3:22 pm

just a word of caution, a person using the name of Terry w5oku maybe a scammer.
I researched the callsign of W5OKU and it expired in 2008 and cancelled in 2010.
It was issued to a Ken Bailey in Corpus Christi,tx.
Expired 8/10/2010
the email from this TERRY is from OK.
his email address is:
He wants to buy your stuff, but never follows up or answers your email.
Don't waste your time with him,
he did this twice to me.

This jerk did the same thing to me, deal fell apart just today. I have posted another warning since it's been 18 months since your encounter. No loss here as payment never received, nor do I now think that he ever intended to pay for the radio. As you did, I recommended that he be avoided at all costs.

Yep ! he tried to rip me off as well just in the past week. He pushed me into paying for the full cost of shipping for a receiver that weighed 40lb. He was very deliberate in his questions about my item. He also insisted on sending a postal money order (which never arrived). Also he used a slightly different email address. radioshack812@yahoo.com

65294 s. 4710 rd.
Westville, OK 74965

He is hanging out on Ebay now (supposedly banned on QRZ, QTH and Eham listing or selling items). His fraud goes a long way back. He is hiding out on Ebay, under painthorse009, and scamming multiple buyers. WIns a bid and never pays. When you report the issue, you can't leave feedback. So he gets around hiding his fraud that way also. Uses BS excuses not to pay, why he does that, who knows.

May be posted on Eh also but likely if so, the trolls over there would rebuke the poster. So no need to waste time. This call has been bouncing around for some time..

I sell on eBay and he has got me twice on there. Once under the user name "painthorse009" and just last week with the name "roseyr7". Seriously, what a sad life a person like him must have to have to spend so much time scamming others. Does anyone have his email address that he uses for Paypal? I want to contact Paypal and use all the info I've collected on this scumbag to hopefully get his Paypal account either shut down or locked up.
