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.

I put a wanted add on QTH for a Icom M-7700 meter. Someone with the call sign KA1HD called and said they had one for sale. They gave me their paypal address, I told them to contact me through QTH classifieds. Because, I couldn't verify their Identity. They said they couldnt do it, they were having problems going through QRZ classifieds, I use QTH classifieds, not QRZ. If I can't verify your identity, I'm not sending you any money. This person then said, my emails are winding up in his spam box. Excuses are red flags. This person is using firstname.lastname@example.org as their email address.
