Hijacked Call sign-David Harris G0CER

Post by KA2CDT » Thu Jan 06, 2011 2:22 am

Another dirtbag scammer trying to take advantage of one of us. We all know the drill. I placed a wanted ad for a IC-7000 speaker and microphone and got the response below. He sends me a stock photo of a 7000 and only wants $500 for it! What a bargain! The reason I am posting this is that I do not want a fellow Ham to be taken especially a new Ham who may not know any better.

The response is:

Thanks for your Email and i have attached a pics of my IC-7000 for you to see and still in Good Condition and Perfectly OK,with No rust or dust and i will be asking 500$ and i will need to know your complete home address and phone Number to calculate the shipping cost to your doorstep,thanks

I also received a similar message from the spoofed G0CER.

Dave, the real G0CER has been posting warning about his hijacked call.
