Robert c Cullins W6TNI IS A SCAMMER

Hello Agn Everyone,


As you may have noticed, in the past week I have been trying to locate some good connectors for a Kenwood PB-24 Battery Pack.

I have received 3 responses.
The first was from marcac8qj@gmail.com.
On 8-14, I saw KN7AZ's post regarding this SCAMMER.
I contacted the real AC8QJ and he informed me that he had not contacted anyone regarding any sales transactions.

On 8-16 I heard back from the 2nd person, using the email " robertw6tni@gmail.com ".
I had sent him a reply and asked him to take a picture of the item with his name, call, and date and send that to me.
He said that his camera was broken.
Everyone has a camera on their phone now days.
So that made me quite suspicious.
When I went to contact the real W6TNI, I made a very interesting discovery.
THIS SCAMMER MISSPELLED THE NAME OF THE PERSON HE CLAIMED TO BE.
The name he was using and the name that comes up for " robertw6tni@gmail.com " is " Robert c Cullins ".
The real W6TNI is Robert C. Collins, just like the Radio Equipment Designer.

Maybe this scammer is a Team Edward Twilight Fan. }:-D LOL aka HI HI

If you happen to receive an email from this scammer, it will show up just as I spelled it with the lower case middle initial.

DO NOT ACCEPT ANY EMAIL OR MESSAGE FROM " Robert c Cullins " " robertw6tni@gmail.com "
I sent a QRZ Private Message to the real W6TNI letting him know that his call has been hijacked. I have not heard back from him yet.

I have not heard from the 3rd person that contacted me last week and I doubt I will.

When buying from an unknown, always ask for a photo of the item with a QSL Card or a piece of paper with their name, call, & date.
Also ask for a phone number and grid coordinates.
Then confirm that the area code & coordinates match the QRZ info & IP.

Taking these few steps should minimize the chances of getting ripped off.

Good Luck & 73, Jim / KB0CIR, Stanley ND
