Gary Cock W3PA(imposter) Scammer!

He just tried the money order scam with me. When he asked for my information I told him it was all current on QRZ. He said he didnt have time to check QRZ, but I DID! He stole the call, and his ISP is located in another state.

I had dealings with "Gary" with the same scenario. I asked for call sign and he gave me W3PA and I too emailed Olaf and he had not responded to my ad. His English was not very good and it's apparently that it is not his first language. I don't know who this guy is but he needs another profession as a scammer he is not very good.
