Sorry to hear about this bad transaction.You can find this person's telephone number
by entering his name and City, Zip Code, or State
(from QRZ Info on the Callsign you listed) at:http://www.anywho.com/whitepages
The QRZ name and address matches the listed
phone number address exactly, even down to the Apt #.A phone call won't get your money back, but
maybe you can make sure it was him, and not someone
who stole his callsign to use in a scam.
This is very
common unfortunately. If it is not him, I am sure
he would appreciate being notified his call has been
"hijacked", though someone can always deny being
the thief even if they ARE guilty.
You can often tell when someone is lying by changes in
their tone of voice and demeanor. An innocent ham whose
call has been hijacked will ask a lot of questions. A guilty
guy will huff and puff, get loud, make threats, and hang up
This kind of thing makes me sick.
This USED to be a gentleman's hobby.....
OTOH it seems to be the way our society is heading.
Degradation of personal integrity, morality, ethics, values.
