*** BEWARE OF N5OYA **** YOU READ YOU DECIDE!!!
Posted: Sun Oct 16, 2005 8:16 pm
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT FLOYD WOLFE CALL N5OYA IS NOT A HONEST HAM. I see he has listings here on QTH.com If you deal with him you might be on the loosing end of the deal like many many others have been
YOU READ YOU DECIDE
After receiveing MANY replies to my emails of other people (HAMS) that have had dealings with FLOYD WOLFE,WOOSTER, OHIO Echolink node number 110128
DO NOT buy anything from this person.I have been scammed for $225.00 out of the $425.00 dollars I sent him for a Heathkit SB-200 amp which I never received after almost 8 months of emailing and requesting a refund of my funds.Now there are NO replies to my emails at all.The last one said that if I keep asking for the balance of my refund I WILL NEVER SEE IT.And that is what has happened now.He works on a MIDWAY of some fly by night carnival and brings those SCAMMING habits to his dealings with fellow hams.SO this is just a short post to advise all fellow hams(TRUE HAMS) not to have any dealings with FLOYD WOLFE N5OYA,Wooster,OH.I guess I am in along list of hams he has scammed over the past few years in one way or another.
Thanks for your time on this matter**** BEWARE****
This fellow is truly an "artist" I bought a palomar 300 amp from him a year or so back that was fritzed when i got it. burned up and meters shot.
I traded him a very nice new yaesu vhf radio for it. sent him several emails and never got a reply.
as the man said beware of this one.
N5OYA is now living in the FairField Glade area of Tenn.
As I have said in the above PLEASE BEWARE of this person
I felt this was a very important piece of information that needs to be passed on to other fellow hams(honest hams that is )and save them the greif that myself and many many other hams have had to deal with.
THESE ARE SOLEY MY OWN THOUGHTS ON THIS SUBJECT AND IN NO WAY REFLECT THE VIEWS OR OPINIONS OF OTHER HAM RADIO OPERATORS.
*** JUST BE ADVISED ***
Thanks for taking the time to read this post

YOUR ARE STILL A SCAM ARTIST
Posted: Thu Oct 20, 2005 1:27 am
Well at least you admit you SCAMMED me for $225.oo and seem to be VERY proud of it ! I guess with your CRIMINAL back round and the many many many emails I have that stated you SCAMMED many other people, that in your mind you did no wrong . But I will do my best to keep the word out about you and your SCAMS that you try to suck other people into Floyd . I mean its just like the SB-200 amp I sent your $425.00 for and MANY MANY months later you kept emailing me with another problem it had!!! When in the original ad on QRZ or where ever it was YOU stated SB-200 amp with all the Harbock mods and new meters and I forget what else you said was new and that it was in EXCELLANT condition ! Then after two weeks or more went by I emailed you about the amp and ALL of a sudden it had an ARC(burn) on one of the controls and you had to order one to replace the one in the amp that was in "EXCELLANT CONDITION" and then another MONTH or TWO went by with NO emails concerning the amp . And when I did get a reply SOMETHING else needed replaced in the "EXCELLANT CONDITION " SB-200 amp. And another MONTH or TWO goes by and I asked for a refund of my $425.00 and you sent me a payment to my PayPal account and that the rest would be sent the next Friday. And another MONTH or TWO went by and after MANY MANY emails(which I still have) The supposed POSTAL MONEY ORDER you sent for the balance DISAPPEARS in the mail. And once again after a few months of emails and more excuses about contacting the POST OFFICE and telling me to contact the post office you told me if I keep ASKING FOR MY REFUND of the balance of my $225.00 that "I WOULD NEVER SEE IT" and I have never received it !!
So Floyd you just keep SCAMMING other folks and just keep thinking in your mind that you have GOOD REFERENCES if thats what it takes to make you feel better about SCAMMING other hams(TRUE HAMS) and who ever else you SCAM in the world!!!
And I will keep on passing the word around when ever I can to try to help someone else from having to deal with you sir. Lord only knows how many people you have worked your magic on and not said a word Floyd ?
So in closing Floyd just send me my $225.00 that you still OWE me ok ?
YEA RIGHT like thats going to happen !
Like I said above with your past and CRIMMINAL history and ALL OF YOUR REFERANCES I'm sure in your mind you are doing NO wrong.But my friend "WHAT GOES AREOUND COMES AROUND" and I hope that I can be the first to hear that you finally SCAMMED the wrong person
BEWARE OF N5OYA HE IS A VERY DIS-HONEST PERSON I refuse to call him a ham!!!!!!
P.S. SEND ME MY $225.00 TO MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT
IT IS AS FOLLOWS:
Posted: Thu Oct 20, 2005 2:04 am
i have sent steve my phone # today. i feel i am honestand willing to discuss this with him voice to voice. if he like to discuss this he is free to call.
Posted: Thu Oct 20, 2005 2:49 am
it seems to me the simple way to slove this problem is for you n5oya to send steve the 225.00 dollars you admit you owe him ... game over

Thank you Scott. 73
THANKS VERY MUCH SCOTT !!!!!
Posted: Thu Oct 20, 2005 5:49 pm
I just want to take this time to thankyou for seeing this person for what he really is.I think that between this site and QRZ.com where Fred is of the same beleif as you according to his post there about N5OYA ! I think that I have more than proved my statements reguarding this whole matter . And that Floyd has shown his TRUE colors as well by admitting that he got me for $225.00 !
The last email I posted from Floyd to me tells me and should I hope WARN others about his dealings PAST & PRESENT .
Thanks for this forum and being able to expose issues like this for all in the Ham community to be able to see and judge for themselves.
MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU SCOTT
I would like to also thank all that have replied on this matter
Whoa Floyd. You are not off the hook yet...
Posted: Thu Oct 20, 2005 10:01 pm
Recall in 2003 I sent you a Drake MS-4 spearker, accepting your promise to send me a Money order for it.
We both know that I never received your Money Order. You have received over two dozen emails and over a dozen phone calls which you NEVER had the courtesy to answer.
Here is your last response to my request for your "missing" work order to be sent to me.
From: floyd wolfe <email@example.com>
Date: Dec 19 2003 - 5:33pm
i have not received emails fro you in some time now. this is the first one. dont know. i will check the blocked e-mail list to see. i get alot of spam and block much of it. as far as missing money order goes will send another one out after the holidays. i still haven't received refund but will send out anyway. thanks and sorry for the inconvienance.
73's floyd go pittsburgh steelers go massillon tigers
If you the honest person you say your are. Be so kind as to send me a USPS Money Order for $78.95 to replace the one you promised me two years ago.
I am waiting...
AH !! THE OLE MISSING MONEY ORDER SCAM ONCE AGAIN !!!
Posted: Thu Oct 20, 2005 11:51 pm
I see ole Floyd got you with the OLE MISSING MONEY ORDER SCAM as well.Let me see, he told you it was lost and he had to fill out a form and when he got the refund your funds would be on the way ? (AM I CLOSE?)
Of course he probably said after a month or so right ?
I think you can plan on NEVER seeing your money Al !!
I TRULEY WONDER how many hams he has stuck it to at this point
I guess he will just have to setup a booth and one of the carnivals he works at and put all the items he has (for lack of better words) STOLEN or NEVER PAID for and charge a buck or two to have people throw darts at the stuff
Because if I have any thing to do with it OLE FLOYD won't be selling anything anywhere any more.I have made him my pet project.
Anyway Al , SORRY to hear you are just another in a GROWING NUMBER of people Floyd has STOLEN money from ! If he is not a THEIF then I am Sister Mary Margret ! And @ 6' 2" and three hundred pounds I don't think thats going to work
Thanks for adding your comments to this whole mess Al !

OYA: give Steve back his $225.00. It is gone for good? You should have a job, shouldn't be to hard to refund him. Speaking about jobs, I need to find one.

I purchased an MFJ 936 differential tuner form old Floyd. The unit was poorly packaged and the case was dented. Fired her up and she smoked.
Old Floyd removed him self from Ebay and will not answer Emails.
Watch out for this guy, Old Floyd's a real scammer!

Well, looks like N5OYA is done here.
I am sure Scott will also do some "other measures" to insure he doesn't post any more ads.
So it seems like the next three steps are to contact EHAM, QRZ and the ARRL classifieds pages and ask their Monitors to Remove all N5OYA ads, to guard against his further postings in perpetuity, and to post a warning in their Scam sections for all to see.
And perhaps step four might be to see if there is a 'Guido' in his neighborhood...
N5OYA is back

Ebay cares only about the commissions they collect on sales. Ebay does not care how many federal laws or how many of their own rules rules are broken. Customer service at ebay is a joke. I have been burned by crooked, lying sellers, I have reported items that are against federal law to sell, I have reported keyword spamming, I have reported obvious scams, I have even reported a listing filled with F-BOMBS. Ebay did nothing. Beware of ebay.

I received the email below from a fellow Ham and unfortunately another casualty of N5OYA. "Ole Floyd" has to be stopped!!!!
I noticed you were one of the last entries on QTH.com so I thought I would add my 2 cents since I am not signed up for that service.
I just recently purchased a set of "matched 3-500z"s" from this jerk and his wife. I have already got the USPS fraud division on this. They pictured 2 supposedly matched tubes, supposedly just purchased and decided not to use because they were selling their SB-220 (another unfortunate person going to get a screw job).
Anyway, the way this works is that the unsuspecting ham sends the money order, they ship junk that is insured, the unfortunate ham files a claim and maybe gets his money back and Floyd and his wife get rid of junk and keeps the original money order.
However, this time, because I saved all the correspondence and turned it over to the feds, including all the email listings on QTH.com, they are quite interested. They have 7 addresses in Ohio, 2 in Texas and 2 in Tennessee. Wonder why they move around so much?
There latest endeavor is http://tenngiftemporium.com/
Please pass this info around to other honest hams and thank you for letting me bend your ear.
I hate to someone else get the shaft.
