On 09/05/14 I responded to an ad on another site for an Icom 746. Derek Halvorson, KB6RDI responded to me immediately and we made a deal. I paid him via Paypal on the morning of 09/06/14. He promised prompt shipping. Since then he will not answer emails or phone messages. Paypal says he created a shipping label but never shipped. I have filed a Paypal claim against him. It has come to my attention that he has sold the same rig to multiple people so he is definitely a scammer.  FWIW the ad is still up along with 3 others from him.

- Are you sure you dealt with the real KB6RDI, looking up his license, it appears he's a technician?

- What email address did the scammer request PayPal payment be sent to?

- Did you send the funds using payment for goods or the gift/funds transfer option?

His phone # is listed in the white pages to him at his license address

KB6RDI@Engineer.com  Which was a paypal "verified" account.

For goods. I've been doing this a while.

The only mistake I made was giving him a few days too many to blow the whistle. I should have started screaming at Day 3 instead of 6.
