Scam--ka6cop & ke6pb

CAUTION!! ka6cop and ke6pb calls have been hijacked as have the legit email acct.'s These hams would have been in their 80's so possibly deceased. Scammer will try to sell non existant radios by stealing a previous description and pictures from ham swap sites. Then applies for UPS shipper on line but no package ever exists.

I know - ke6pb is trying to steal form me right now - paypal dispute / claim already started yesterday. The scammer went so far as to get a UPS tracking number, but never give item to UPS.

Also scammed me out of $150. Have not bought here at QTH in 15 years and get scammed here on second purchase in a week.

I just spoke with the son of ka6cop - and ka6cop passed away some time ago - - the person trying to use his good name to steal....well....I hope he gets caught - that is pathetic.

Scammed me for $450.00 on a Kenwood TS-790 in an ad here on QTH.
Never would produce a tracking number. I have also filled out a claim with PayPal.
Maybe if they have enough claims, they will realize the fraud going on and
get this person/s.
