Message received from another known scammer

Post by wb3cez » Sat Jul 16, 2011 7:26 pm

Below is an email I received in reply to an ad I ran on QTH for a Yaesu amplifier. This is the second time this thief has tried to scam me using different calls. He currently is using "2e1dhl". Western Union payment and a g-mail address is always a dead give away!




"This amplifier covers 160m to 10m inc 30, 17 and 12m

It has been thoroughly checked out, tubes, 2x572Bs, 600/700 watts
output.still in Good Condition,Perfectly OK,and i will be asking 300$
including the shipping and insurance to your doorstep,i will need your
complete home address and Phone Number to process with the shipping,My
Mode of payment is Via western union,As soon as Money is Transfer i
will package and ship and i will email you with the shipping tracking
information,Thanks and Hope to hear from you soon"
