Hello. all just want to make you aware of a scammer using the gmail of firstname.lastname@example.org and call of K1RQS.
I had placed a WTB AD. For a mercury iiis or a lux. Got an email reply from the gmail above, and he sent me a picture of someone else’s amp with their call sign in the upper right corner of the merc screen
I reached out to the call sign of the ham in the corner of the merc screen and he advised that he never sold this amp to the call sign K1RQS in the lower right corner…
So if you use WTB ads make sure you do your due diligence like I did to avoid a scam
For reports of scammers using other people's callsigns. Remember that any callsigns listed in this forum are likely innocent bystanders (subjects of identity theft) and, thus, are probably not guilty of anything. For bad transactions with verified ham operators, use the Feedback Forum instead.
