I tell you one thing, I plan on buying a TS-2000 from QTH in the next couple of months. I am putting all scamers on notice that if this were me I would be taking a little field trip to see the person and set things straight. :evil:
Just makes me sick that people would do such a thing. We work to hard for our money and deserve better. We as a community need to stick together on both sides of the border and get this problem under control. We need to self police ourselves and maybe bring back the old days of fixing things, just my two cents.
Sorry this happened to you, :( and hope you get it worked out

If I paid good money for a radio, any radio, and got 20# of cat litter instead, the person taking my money would, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, be a "good egg".. There is no explanation for doing something like that.. :x :x

If it looks like a rat, and smells like a rat, most times it is a rat. It appears that this guy came to his good senses. Some people hear about people getting away with scams, and are tempted to give them a try. I am not sure what this guy was about but it has a happy ending, as the right thing was done.
