HG3K is a scammer

His IP address is in Miami, the callsign does not exist. He was asking weird questions about an item I had for sale and when I asked him where he was he went silent. Beware.

I also received an email from Russ HG3K nancywukids@gmail.com asking "still for sales?" Since it looked like a scammer I did not respond. Unfortunately in the last couple of weeks I have had more scammers reply to my QTH ad than legitimate hams.
