Stolen Callsign Scam

AB2OI Callsign Stolen and Used By
Lagos, Nigeria Scam Scum

This type of scam scum have tried
to rig me off several times over
the last 2 months using this TWIST

I send an email to a seller with an
offer and ask to be contacted in
the event the item is not sold for
the sellers asking price. The scum
plays the waiting game then emails
the buyer saying someone did not
pay or that they received a phony

scumbag in Lagos, Nigeria trying to
steal from us hams.

If you have the time and
inclination you can play their game
on them. String them out with
excuses. Tell them you will send
them a cashier's check or money
order. Anything you can do to waste
their time will reduce the time
they spend trying to steal our
