Well he is back!!! Beware Joe Herreweyer scammed me on a Heatkit SA2060A. He sold me a unit with bad RF switch and promised to pay $50 to replace the switch. He never sent the money! They said he would disappear for a while and then return to hit one more unsuspecting victims! WELL HE IS BACK.

Another victim of Joe Herreweyer, N9EMC

Post by K3DD » Sat Nov 26, 2005 3:35 am

Add me to the list of Joe Herreweyer victims. I sent him a USPS money order for $152 on October 24th for two 432 antennas. USPS confirms the money order was cashed. No antennas received. No communication since November 2nd.

Wouldn't cashing a USPS money order without delivering the product be mail fraud? Wouldn't the Postal Inspector go after the guy? I don't know for sure but always thought that's how it worked.

The USPS won't go after $152 ... only a long list and thousands of dollars worth of mail fraud by an individual. At times, it seems that mail fraud from QTH.com dealings would keep an inspector busy 24/7! I'm sure that Joe Herreweyers knows that. PayPal might freeze his account and a credit card company would probably refund the charge, but it seems that the USPS won't get involved unless you're dealing with a bonafide mobster :-)

Regardless, all this doesn't mean the end of the story.
