Author Topic: Scammer using AB6OZ call  (Read 2960 times)

Posts: 1

« on: April 16, 2013, 03:41:56 PM »

Same scammer from San Jose, Ca.  Two items listed on  K3/100 and IC 7200.
It smelled bad from the get go especially after the last scam using the call KI6MPJ.
My investigation on the net revealed this.  AB6OZ call expired last year in Sept.  The real Mr. George Brady died in 2004 according to obit.  
This impostor ass wipe wants money sent to third party.  Doesn't want to call of course.  I hope he dies waiting on my money order to show.

Here's the email trail.  Emails in reverse chronological order.   Start at the bottom.  Fun read.  Notice he didn't list a P3 pan adaptor so I jogged his memory and he just threw it in.  What a steal of a deal !!

OK Geo,

I will send the money order tomorrow.  You can go ahead and ship the radio tomorrow also to save time.

Thanks for your help.

Sounds good.  Do you also include the pan adaptor too?
You can call me and we can discuss payment options.
