Possible scammer using call of K8BYP

Post by wb4oql »

I had placed a WTB ad for a Icom MB 105 and received a reply from someone using the call of K8BYP. The wording from K8BYP was a red flag for me. After a few emails back and forth, he would take PP F&F. Another red flag. Now the emails to him are bouncing. Also the PP acct was at madukesx212. Also, the initial email did not come thru the normal QTH channels. I don't think this is the real K8BYP but another scammer using the call. I did not do business with the account. Be aware.
