Hello Rob

It's a fraud.

Looks like it is by someone who does not speak english as their first language.

It would be unusual to use Western Union in the UK.

I would guess African, maybe Nigerian, but I really don't know

Regards

Chris G8RBW (note the 'h' in Chris)

This happened to me, too. I advertised on two other forums, looking for an Ameco AC-1. I was surprised when 3 hams in the UK replied (I didn't even know the AC-1 was sold in the UK), but quickly became suspicious.

The other two replies are probably from the same person. One gave me his phone number and seemed shocked when I called him. He didn't sound English, and when I asked how much he wanted for the AC-1 he wanted to hang up and reply by e-mail.

Be careful.
