I have never put this much effort in public service announcements concerning Scammer's, but this week has been a doozy. After I posted my last two ads concerning PATRICK B. MONTGOMERY K6PBM, I have received a flood of emails from others who were contacted by this scumbag in order to pilfer their wallets. Be advised people, and be pro active in putting this on blast for everyone to read. Take a moment to post all critical information about any scammer, here on eHam, including any of the other Ham based forums. Make your voice heard loud and clear. Take a stand to illustrate that no one here is going to become victim to these cockroaches. I appreciate all of the email received about this individual but it's even more important that you share this with everyone, including the Classifieds Manager, Paypal, or any other entity that may be concerned with these attempts to commit fraud. This is a FELONY, especially from out of state. Law enforcement would be very interested in finding out who these AH's are. This is a Federal offense and so that everyone knows, these types of crimes when prosecuted, convicted and sentenced, DO NOT INCLUDE PAROLE!
It's my sincere hope that the 100 bucks or so that these scumbags seek is worth 3 years in prison. Really. Think about that.
For those that have never thought about being scammed, there are numerous resources available to you that will make you an informed and protected participant in everything that is great about eHam and the classifieds privileges. If we all pull together and watch each others back, the possibility of getting hosed by these idiots will be significantly reduced, if not completely done away with.
MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!!!!
