BEWARE of KF6BML - Neil B. Baumgardner

Post by N0KO » Mon Oct 13, 2014 4:50 pm

BEWARE OF KF6BML-Neil B. Baumgardner, 2616 Border Ave Corona, CA 92882-5621 or Arlington, CA. telephone 951-710-4516. He listed five for sale ads here at QTH.com (TE Systems 2 meter amp = #1156850,#1156994,#1157202,#1157174 and #1157172 and also the same ads on Eham.net. He insists on Paypal. I responded and paid via Paypal on Oct 1 for the 2 meter amp but after 5 days he forwards a bogus UPS tracking number of 1ZW760910390015012 which states that a label has been printed and is ready for UPS, but no package has ever been put
through the UPS system. As of October 13, 2014, still no package and the tracking
number status has not changed and I'm out $330. Baumgardner insists there is no problem. I have filed a complaint with Paypal. ......
Has anyone else dealt with this guy? ........Sure don't want anyone else to have to go through what I am going through.

I had the exact same problem from him.. I disputed the transaction on PayPal friday, and without posting anything through PayPal he refunded my money..

My tracking # was 1ZW760910390120041

Thanks for your posting. Looks like he is in the business of selling the same piece of equipment several times over ! I hope more people see this posting and refuse to deal with this crook.

Randy, at this level of fraud, the local authorities in his jurisdiction will act. Contact them and the fbi for wire fraud. Paul w8jn
