Carlos commits to a deal and never finds Post Office to send money order.

Carlos committed to buy my radio and send funds after a personal trip.
He never sent funds when he returned .
Meanwhile I pulled the radio off the market turning away other buyers.
A week later he has to make an emergency trip and says he can pay in 10 days after he returned.. Sorry I never called you back Carlos.I told four cash ready buyers you were sending me funds and that never happened...
I hope you can find your checkbook or the Post Office on your next commitment to buy from a fellow amateur.. :cry:

He's still at it

Told me he was interested in buying my rig and never came through with sending the money and never told me he changed his mind. What a piece of work this guy is.

OMG... I know this guy. I have dealt with him before but my deal with him was in person. I once bought an amplifier from him and he VERY graciously drove a long way to deliver it to me. We met at a Wendy's and had lunch together. I see him at the same hamfest every year out on Long Island. Although I don't doubt what you both have said about what happened, it simply does not sound like the same guy I know. I am wondering if someone is hijacking his identity? I am a fairly good judge of character and I would be absolutely blown away if this is the same guy I know. I will certainly talk to him about this when I see him again or maybe sooner. I am wondering if someone else is using his identity?

I would not wait for him again. Relist your ad and sell it to someone else. I'll bet that he either will come up with another excuse or not contact you at all.

N9VAO this complaint was posted almost 7 months ago. Don't you suppose he sold the radio to another and not held it for 7 months.

I'm sorry Larry, please forgive me. I only noticed the dates on the last three posts before mine. I will pay closer attention next time.

Was not meaning to sound insulting but i just thought wow surely he did not hold it for 7 months waiting for payment.

After he discovered my unhappy post he blew a bunch of crap at me about I need more education No clue where that came from.
Anyway I told him if I pulled that on him or another fellow amateur I would expect a post about ME jacking someone around!

Yep, someone has been hi jacking his call..did it to me some time ago under N2EFN and now under his newer call WB2CM. Wanted me to swap radios with him, send him mine and he would send his...yeah, not going to happen. Already knew up front it wasn't the real Carlos. The pic of the radio he was swapping wasn't his pics, and like others posted, had a family "emergency", etc. This call has been perpetually scammed repeatedly. Hope he resolves it some day as it seems to be still on ongoing....
