This Old man fell for a scam by Juan Alberto- $760.00 but Paypal will reimburse me on Dec 7th if he hasn't refunded the money. He was Very convincing- Should be a Used Car Salesman..

BEWARE :(

LU7DIM and EA7VK appear to have different last names. Once again are you SURE someone isn't posing as EA7VK?

I'm seeing more and more scammers posing as foreign hams, using real callsigns and taking time to create email addresses with the callsign in them. These guys are knowledgeable about ham radio, often finding pictures on the Internet and using those to show the equipment they have "for sale".

Typically these guys want you to use Western Union. I have to say I have not seen one of these scams where they would take PayPal, due to the protection that PayPal offers.

From ctheise@web.de
Do you know Juan Alberto from Spain?

He is a cheater!!!! He is contacting people all over the world, who are looking for especially things. Than he writes, I have exactly, what you want and I send you some pics, but you must pay before...

You'll get your money back via PayPal, my money is lost...

He is telling lies. I' m not his son!!!! I don't know this man.

He writes to me, You are a friend of him. I've send your money to him, but not via PayPal. What a big mistake of me...I was a dreamer in this moment.

Please open google homepage and give in in the search bar: lu7dim12@gmail.com (it's Juan's account). Then you'll find many warnings...

Your money is sure and come back to you in the next days.

I Guess Juan Alberto is LU7DIM. Beware of him also.
