The package has been shipped to Romania and thanks to Steve I could honestly say it was a gift. He sure as hell didn't pay me for it.
As far as the filters go the following is the original email:
The response is from:
Name: Steven Hays Sr
The response is:
Have you found your Yaesu FT-857D yet? I have one that I purchased brand new this winter (Jan, 2011)for sale. It comes with all stock accessories (Bracket, Mic, Power Cord, manual) but no box. Also it has the CW and SSB filters installed. It also comes with the remote mount kit for the faceplate.
I'm selling th rig for $750 and it looks like USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail to Romania would be $69.60 insured. Shipping would take 10 days from me to you.
Now I don't know where it says "if you want to buy the rig send money and I will remove the filters" I inspected the board where the filters where supposed to be installed with a magnifying glass and there has NEVER been any filters installed in that radio. Absolutely NO marks what so ever. Steve you also said YOU bought new in Jan 2011 then changed your story that you bought it from another ham that bought it in Jan.
I told you, once you start lying you need to take notes because you have to remember what lies you've told.
In my opinion you are a Sociopath and in case you don't know what that means you can read the following.
>Glibness and Superficial Charm
>Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
>Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."
>Pathological Lying Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
>Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
>Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
As far as Adrain and I are concerned this situation is a done deal and the moderator may lock when ever deamed necessary.
Other than your good buddy's on the other forum, I think everyone else has seen your true colors.
I'm sure I will get castigated here for awhile but what I have seen come out of that group, it is usually childish, calling people names or just flat not making any sense.
Good Luck in the future Steve.
