Have you tried calling him as if you put his call in the search box here you will see he has a good reputation. There are a lot of people scamming and using anothers call. My boo boo as i ran your call instead of the KI6 call.Your good to go but Julia looks to be dishonest.

Boy do i feel stupid i guess i forgot to take my smart pill yesterday. Ray i ran your call in search that is why all the good reports. So it appears from what KE3W has shown that you may have been scammed,so hope you used pay pal as that way you have a chance to recover your money.

Ray no need to call your self stupid because over a year ago or close to it i sent $800.00 via pay pal to a person claiming to be selling a KW 2000 that it turned out was using a stolen call. Fortunitely i got suspicious after he stopped immediately responding to my E mail and then tried calling the number which i should have done at the beginning he gave which turned out to be in Las Vegas and non Working. I then called the owner of the call and he called Pay pal whom i had sent the money through and told them what was happening then he in turned told me to call them and luckily i got my money refunded to my account while oh the phone with them. Believe me i was more happy than you can realize that it turned out well. I believe it was Scott who said later that the scammers internet info showed him to be in Australia. So your not alone and i hope some how you get your money back.

western union????

Post by N0ISV » Sun Nov 06, 2011 4:28 pm

Its best to NEVER use western union! For most Hams...its a rip off?
PayPal is getting worse too, but I like my funds to get to the seller ASAP! There is alot of up charging 3%-6% by Hams who use PayPal, and this action is against their policy!
With the USPS going out of business soon....not much left?

Good faith between most HAMS is very important!
