KE4GPZ / W4BPT Billy P. Talyor Sr. Beware!!!!!

Post by N5KBP » Tue May 08, 2007 2:49 am

On 04/19/2007 I agreed to trade a Radio Shack HTX-200 HT for a Dentron Super Tuner with him.
I shipped the HT via Fedex, tracking # 045770734142507 on 04/20/2007. I emailed Billy the tracking info and he replied that he would ship the same day and forward tracking info to me.

Between 04/21 and 05/01 I sent multiple emails requesting shipping info and did not receive a reply until I forwarded the link to proof that he had signed for delivery of the HT on 04/24. 05/01 he sent an email with another promise to ship that day as well as some kind of excuse about being out of town to take care of his mother at the same time he was at home signing for the HT? He again promised to ship the tuner and forward shipping info.

05/03 he replied to another email form me inquiring about shipping with another promise to ship.
Well lo and behold I have not received any tuner or emails since.
Go figure.

I found a message from W7YBV at http://www.eham.net/forums/Misc/3429 that should have warned me but I saw it to late.

I should have more thoroughly checked this guy out but I didn't. That is my fault and I'm paying the price.
So if you make any deals with Bill P. Taylor Sr. be very careful.
His contact info is

Is it possible for a person to hold 2 different amateur radio calls with different addresses ??

I just happen to pull up Billies info on QRZ and found 2 calls for the same person.

According to the FCC database, he does have two calls, both Tech Class with different adresses in Georgia for each. Both calls in the database show the same FRN number. How that works and where the WVa adress came from - who knows.

Well finally got the tuner . It only took 3 weeks, multiple emails and many unfulfilled promises to ship. It was so poorly packed one of the knobs was pushed back and broke the nylon bolt that holds the variable cap in. The heavy cap came unsoldered and bounced around in the box and bent a few plates. I have the plates bent back and will go to the hardware store tomorrow to replace the nylon bolt. I have learned a good lesson on this one. Check out a guy VERY thoroughly before sending anything.

You are lucky to have received your tuner. Billy has never sent my laptop yet after four years. He just kept my IC-2AT. He had many excuses over the years and "sich mother" was one of them. Just gotta watch this guy.

Sorry to hear you never got the laptop. He claimed in an email that he sent it to you. He also claimed that the radio you sent was DOA. From my experience I put a lot more stock in your version than his.


Cut and paste of entire email from Billy P. Taylor Sr. to me dated 05/08/07. Excluding >> stuff from reply quoted part.
