As a warning to EVERYONE,

Don Pinson, N7DPP agreed to trade his used Yaesu FT-897D for my new iPad. We agreed that we will each pay shipping, insure it and provide a tracking number. My iPad was sent out on tuesday the 12th, February 2013. According to N7DPP, (Don Pinson) He did the same. My tracking number was valid and I followed my Ipad online, watching it pass through mail centers and eventually leading to his doorstep. The entire time this was happening, Don Pinson said the tracking number was "just delayed" and then the story changed to "the radio is lost in the mail" I've never had a single package lost, EVER.
So, to my suprise I get a email from Don stating that my iPad was not sent complete, as it was without the registration card and manual. Anyone that has knowledge of ipads or iPhones knows they don't come with manuals or registration cards. According to Don Pinson, N7DPP, he has previously owned a iPad, and I find it SHOCKING that he is asking for something that does not exist in the "apple world". Now, even though Don said the ft-897d was "lost", I get a email on Sunday the 17th stating that he "got it back" (odd, I guess only in WA postal services are open on sunday) He claims that still the iPad is without the registration card and manual. I emailed him back stating that again THEY DO NOT COME WITH MANUALS OR REGISTRATION CARDS.

So, after a full week of talking to my fellow hams I get a message on my phone this morning stating Don Pinson N7DPP is now selling a screwdriver antenna. I go to the link http://swap.qth.com/view_ad.php?counter=1047823 and to my suprise (not really suprised) there in the background in his photo is my iPad, with grey belkin cover getting a nice charge, and to the left under a stack of papers and his glasses is the Yaesu FT-897D that was supposedly "lost in the postal system". Now, I have proof he has accepted and is in posession of the iPad, and is still in posession of the Yaesu FT-897D.....Hello fraud alert. Don, you have to the end of the day today to mail out the Yaesu, or return my iPad or I am calling the police. Do whats right, be a man and admit your hands have been caught in the cookie jar. The evidence is pretty strong as you can see.

for all of you other Hams, I'm not the only one who's had to deal with Don Pinson N7DPP. As a matter of fact, the other people with stolen items hae almost a identical story as mine.....Apparently Don Pinson, N7DPP (WHO'S CHANGED CALL SIGNS MANY TIMES) is the only man on earth to have a 100% failure rate with our tried and true postal system. Here is some links to prove my point.

I have not got 100% failier rate with post office I have shipped over 100 items and had a problem with a few out of that, as for getting the radio back on sunday,no, i let you know on sunday i had it, not that it got back on sunday. your crappy so called NEW ipad will be returned as soon as i am able to financially afford it,certainly not going out of my way for you after all the crap you have posted on me.

Well it's quite obvious "the crap he posted" must have some insightful truth to it.

Here's some more advice to your kind of "people'..

“Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of -- for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.”

I am honestly trying to give Don every chance to return my iPad, but the federal attorneys for both MI and WA are now looking at these numerous cases. I get my stuff- I drop case. simple. I don't know why he's making this take longer than it needs to.

Don emailed me today, and he is saying I should pay him for shipping my Ipad back to me, so I have offered for him to trust me and send me the iPad back, and I will send him a certified cashiers check for the cost of shipping. If he does this I will drop all charges. I think this is a completely fair request, hopefully he will  do it.
