Did you pay with PayPal Goods and Services or Friends and Family?

Another ham who posted on qrz.com was taken by the same scammer.

Did you report this to the qth.com administrators? It appears they have removed it.

Yes, I paid via PayPal Goods and Services. I also have a case open with PayPal. Hopefully they will recognize this scam and I will get a full refund. I should have been a lot smarter.
