KB6RDI Derek Halvorson Scammer

Post by N5KBP » Sat Sep 13, 2014 4:17 pm

On 09/05/14 I responded to ad #1152333 here on QTH for a Icom 746. Derek Halvorson, KB6RDI responded to me immediately and we made a deal. I paid him via Paypal on the morning of 09/06/14. He promised prompt shipping. Since then he will not answer emails or phone messages. Paypal says he created a shipping label but never shipped. I have filed a Paypal claim against him. It has come to my attention that he has sold the same rig to multiple people so he is definitely a scammer. look out. FWIW the ad is still up along with 3 others from him 1152334,1152333,1151930,1151733.

He is doing the same thing with an AL-800 which is currently posted on QTH. He is also on Eham with postings. Maybe he's trying for a grand slam?
