Scammer from Africa answering "Wanted" ads

Post by W4JF » Tue Jul 02, 2019 1:36 pm

Here is what the scammer is currently using as his identity:

> Name: Karl Doody
> Callsign: VE6KDX
> E-mail: ogeartthme@gmail.com
> IP Address: 41.215.163.130 -- (Check IP at
> https://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/41.215.163.130)

Looking at the IP address, this scammer is in Ghana, Africa. ALWAYS CHECK-OUT THE IP ADDRESS !!!!!

In this particular instance, he is using the callsign of VE6KDX . VE6KDX does not have an email address listed on QRZ, so it's impossible to contact him to let him know someone is using his callsign fraudulently. If you know Karl, let him know about this.

Apart from the IP address being in Africa, this joker is also a terrible writer and his grammar is nonexistent. He is using photos stolen from other places to convince an innocent buyer that he has the equipment you need. Plus he sent an image of a totally non-related piece of equipment, just another red-flag.

BUYER BEWARE OF THIS PIECE OF CRAP OUT OF AFRICA!!
