:cry: SCAMMER - BEWARE. Someone has used W9ZR's call to rip me off on this web site. If you are ever to buy something from W9ZR, please be sure you are dealing with him and not the scammer. Randy is a good guy, but scammer is a piece of crap.

IT REALLY sucks when people pulling off this kind of stuff. I don't know what kind of payment the scammer wanted but in My opinion PayPal at least offers some kind of protection from scammers especially if you use a credit card with your paypal account. If PayPal won't pay you back, the credit card company will and I have never been let down yet.

There are two things in my mind that usually point to a scammer. They are refusing to take PayPal and if the price seems a little too good to be true. There are more and more of these Idiots lurking on this and other Ham sites so it is getting tougher and tougher to get a safe deal. For some reason the scammers usually are using British Call Signs even though the Scammer may be in a different part of the world.

I hope you are able to recover whatever you lost. Good Luck.

Now I can't say "sucks"? Somebody ought to do a search and explain why countless others are allowed to so I don't think I'm being singled out for no reason!

The word "SUCKS" is fine, but you can't say "CLOWN" anymore...
