Maybe try contacting the police department in his hometown. Sure sounds like he's running a scam by all the people he's taken. His local police would be the ones to start with. Also get in touch with the others that he's taken and have them do the same. From what I read in another post he has alot more ads here on QTH so he's bound to rip some more people if he's let go.

Good luck. Tracy KB9VXQ

Somebody needs to do something about people who fail to perform simple research on a seller before committing to a deal.

There is a post on the forum about K5SEK, its just three posts down from this one. :shock:

If you just took the time, you would still be $195 richer than you are today. :oops:

Let's wake up people.

Maybe his transaction took place prior to the posts?

The first time KA5SEK's reputation was reported as questionable on QTH.com was at the end of March 2006. See below:

KG6JXZ would have found the info on KA5SEK if he had just taken the time to perform the simple search.
