Post by K9FI » Thu Nov 03, 2005 12:26 pm

You have received a response to your ad, titled "WTB: MFJ-269", that you have running on the QTH.COM Free Ham Radio Classified Ads.

The response is from:

Name: Mr Wu Hoin
Callsign: SW7RE

The response is:

Good day, i am Mr Wu Hoin..i hail from pierre usa & i am highly interested in buying what you placed on the net,Let me know the latest condition & the asking price you are willing to sell.f money order is the form of payment ,get back asap

Mr Wu Hoin

...And this is in response to my WTB Ad... :roll:

Will this never stop?!

Unfortunately, NO!

This a cancer in the same medical center as spam. So long as one sucker per month responds, they will never be cured.

Just got this exact same email from "Mr. Hoin" regrding a Heathkit system I have advertised. We have a Chinese name, a callsign that doesn't exist in any database I can find, and we live in Pierre, USA...wherever that is.
