Rcvd this email regarding a posting I had:

Hello - I am interested in purchasing and will split shipping costs with you. Hoe much do you estimate to 60041 Illinois?

Thank you:


Some red flags:
1. I had not yet posted a pic or pics and no request for a pic of the item from this guy.
2. Asked about shipment to 60041 when ULS QTH is in FL
3. Payment method not requested.
4. Asked for a definitive Zip code to estimate shipping and no response, up and disappeared.
5. Wording seemed off.
6. Not typical buyer inquiry or response.

No response when questions were sent back so suspect a hacked callsign/email.

Just be cautious.
