I'm sorry for your issue Barry.

You problem Barry is that you trusted a scammer that used KG5VYL's callsign. It happens all the time.


KG5CYL does not have his email listed on QRZ.com. That is your first clue. The scammer saw this and took his identity because of this. Also, YOU did not ask for a telephone number.

You did not deal with KG5CYL. You sent money by PayPal friends and family, which is just as as bad as handing someone you don't know on the street two one hundred dollar bills.

KG5CYL does not even know all this happened.

Next time Barry, please protect yourself.
Ask for a phone number
Ask for a picture of the device with the sellers callsign in the picture
Send money only by standard PayPal. If the seller askes for an additional 3.5%, then add it. It would have been an extra 7.00. Cheap insurance.

Best of luck to you on your next purchase Barry

OK, we have either identified a scammer (not really David Satterwhite) or a dishonest ham. I am leaning towards a scammer. I, too, had the misfortune of running across this individual. While looking for a SP101 (clearly identified as the new version for the newer Yaesu FTdx101D, I was approached by this person (same as the other complaint). Never received tracking, daily delays in shipping and providing tracking. Finally got a picture and it was the OLD SP101 so I told the person just to refund my payment. Again, more excuses and no refund. Last word was that the refund was sent but that it would take 24 hours (not true). So...I sent him an invoice to pay as that would be the easiest...of course that was ignored. I then received a rather cryptic email saying that I was making someone's PayPal account negative with my refund request. Either a product of todays school system or a foreigner writing the email. In any case when "purchasing" the speaker, they insisted on Friends and Family (sometimes a red flag) to which I replied that I would simply add the additional funds to cover the fees, which I did. Thank goodness. Bottom line...a dispute has been opened, copies of all emails sent to PayPal and now I wait while PayPal does it's thing. The recipient of the payment was "Heather Frick", identified by the "seller" as his/her business partner. Stay far away from this con artist. The suspect email is as previously posted I have been unable to contact the real David Satterwhite as he has no email address on his QRZ page. :x
