Scammer posing as Ken K5ALQ

Post by kg8y »

BEWARE!!!! Same deal as before.
Scammer posing as Ken Blevins this time.

Responding to my WTB ad.
Asking for cashapp and zelle payment for parts that don't match the description. Clearly no ham radio knowledge. No photos.

K5ALQ does not have an email listed on his qrz profile, so someone certainly needs to notify him if he is not SK.

Yes, this guy is to be avoided. FWIW He responded to my WTB ad. Couldn’t answer the questions I asked about the item. Then he told me he had a “dead” amplifier he would sell me. After several email exchanges, I caught wise when he sent a nice photo of the amplifier that was obviously copied.
