WANTED Items Scams

I'm careful when advertising for items I want by including "Licensed US hams with PayPal only please" This comes after receiving numerous replies to my adds by sellers wanting Western Union(and a none US or even valid call sign. One guy said he was in the UK so I offered to send my nephew around (who lives there) with the cash to pick up the device - I never heard from this character again! :twisted:
