G0FDJ - Identity Fraud Alert

I had posted a WTB ad and received and email from someone claiming to be G0FDJ - KEITH CASTLEY from England. The exchange was going well until he requested to be payed via Western Union funds. He also tried to rush the transaction along. That raised the alarm and when I looked at the IP address that he used to reply to my ad it came back to a Romania address. I then noticed that the email he was using was different from the one that the real G0FDJ had on his profile. I was able to make contact with the real G0FDJ to confirm that it was a scam. Just be aware - they can be pretty tricky.
