Mod 43 Bird Meter "Bob Singer"

I recently posted a WTB for a
Bird 100H slug only. I got an
email offering a meter and
accessories from a "Bob Singer".
Below is the email and my answer.
- Hi Clint,

Thanks for your response,
Offered here for sale is my very
nice Bird 43 watt meter with the
below listed slugs Everything
works perfectly.

43 watt meter with SO-239
connection(not 'N').
Dummy slug/plug
Leather carry case
25C slug, 100-250mhz 25w.
50C slug, 100-250mhz 50w.
100H slug, 2-30mhz 100w.
250H slug,2-30mhz 250w.
All shipped via ups or FedEx for
$250, I'll accept payment via
western union or money-gram.

Many thanks,
Bob - My Reply

Bob - I am in NO WAY interested
in your meter.
I am only looking for one slug as
I already have a meter.
I would NEVER pay using Western
Union or Money Gram as they offer
no protection for the buyer or
seller.
I question why you never offered
your call-sign so I can look you
up in the FCC database.
The picture you included has
someone else's name and call sign
on it.
And I also noticed that when you
created your gmail address you
misspelled your own name.

This may not be a scam, but there
are so many alarm bells going off
I have to say: So - thank you no.

Clint - W5CPT -
