Scamer BB5WT

Post by AA5JJ » Thu Aug 18, 2016 7:58 am

I am looking for a case for a Clear Chanel AR-3500 10 meter mobile so this guy sends me a text message on my cell phone. He says I have a Ranger RCI-3500 up for sale. So I replied to the text message and He ask how soon do you need it and I replied No big hurry please send pics.He said OK. Then He says send me your email address to send pictures. I ask Him what was His call sign and He replied Call sign is BB5WT No such call sign on QRZ. Look out guys Beware of scammers.

Wayne, BB5WT also replied to my WTB ad, stating "i have one up for sell" The callsign is Chinese but the email originated in Kentucky and the grammar is poor. I made KA9FOX aware of this scammer so hopefully he does not bother anyone else.
