Scammer KC5VCR...

Post by KA0I » Sat Feb 23, 2008 4:35 pm

I got stung by KC5VCR several years ago on a VHF amplifier. Sounds like he's still the same. I had to contact him several times asking when the item was shipped. He kept saying he had already shipped it. I think it took nearly a month to show up. When it finally arrived, it was very poorly packaged, damaged in shipment, and didn't work properly. Even though it was damaged, it was apparent that it did not work prior to shipment.

I used to see him at hamfests, looking like something the cat dragged in, always with a table full of junk equipment that had obviously been misused, neglected, and abused.

KC5VCR Scammer

I chased down this scammer several years ago for someone. I found him in Eureka Springs AR. The Chief of Police in Eureka Springs knows him well and can draw you a map to his house. I thought everyone knew him well.
