Scammer using KC5IEX call

On January 13, 2014 I answered an
ad posted by KC5IEX, call belonging
to Carl G. Sigler of Russellville,
AR. We agreed on a price for an
Icom 706 mkiiG of $600.00. After
researching the call sign and not
finding anything negative I made
payment for the radio. After
excuses for not shipping and after
a few days of my e-mails not being
unanswered, I found a ham in
Russellville who helped me track
down the REAL Carl G. Sigler. I
spoke with Carl Sigler on the
morning of January 23, 2014 and he
stated he had not placed the ad and
was no long very active in amateur
radio. Carl said he contacted QTH
and told them he had not placed the
ad and to take it down and that if
someone was posting or trying to
place ads using his call it was not
him. The REAl Carl Sigler is a nice
guy. I have turned this over to law
enforcement but am still out
$600.00 and nothing to show for it.
