ts 2000 for sale- use caution

Post by n2gbt » Wed Feb 01, 2012 4:36 pm

theres a ts 2000 for sale- the callsign/owner is definately a german person but when I replied in german(I speak German) its clear they dont speak german- looking for a WU payment ONLY- excuses for not taking paypal- they state they had a problem with paypal- never received payment for a radio they sold- I asked why would you ship something and not wait for paypal payment first- no plausible explanation
sent a form for shipping including my country--- claims theres others in line for the radio- if youre one of these people " in line" for this radio use caution on this sale

I know hinnerk i have talked to him on a local repeater here. I dont think he listed all these items. I think he only has a mobile hf setup as he cant have antennas in his condo. Scott i would look at all ads listed by kc2wau i dont think this is him. Hinnerk is definately german i know that. Something is not right with all ads listed with his call

this guys is using the name Jerry- I asked him in German if he is Jerry or Hinnerk and he didnt know what I said- I asked for a contact phone number and was told- its better if he called me

the other ad on here was the yaesu 736R-- the guy selling it had scam alarts galore- when I insisted on payal- no reply.

I post this only because its inevidable someone will get taken and hopefully they do as I do- take a moment to do some homework and check here also just in case theres a heads-up alert

Here is another suspicious item offered for sale - an Icom IC-756PROIII for
$1500? Of course I contacted him to pin him down:

1) He only takes WU - big flag there!
2) His name is Jerry Anderson, not right.
3) His email is KC2WAU@GMAIL.COM - an anonymous email !
4) I got his Phone # +447035965696 - In england!
5) After I got him pinned down his ad suddenly dis-appeared.

I think I'll pass on this SCAM

I had the items removed, they were all fake and western union was one give away, the sellers name was another and his broken English in his email was another.
