Hello folks,

In response to one of my eHam ads requesting a used Ten Tec Paragon,  I received the following:

TEN TEC PARAGON 585 WITH MATCHING POWER SUPPLY AND MIC ..RADIO HAS ALL THE FILTERS AND THE FM BOARD INSTALLED..EVERYTHING IS IN VERY NICE CONDITION AND FROM A NON SMOKING HOME ..COMES WITH ALL MANUALS AND OPTION SHEETS..I'M ASKING $420 SHIPPED
73

Note: I found virtually the same advertisement on QRZ.co  (see AB1LV).
[/i]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When I asked if the radio had any PLL issues, and asked about P :PayPal payment, the following was received..

3yrs old........ I have no issues with the PLL.... and payment is via Postal MO. 73

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When I asked whether this individual would accept PayPal, I got the following back:

I am selling due to health issues. I will use USPS insured to send to your doorstep. will double box on packing. Issue and send a postal money order to:

Full name: (name redacted)

Address: (address redacted) City: Franklin State: Kentucky Zip Code: 42134.

Send with priority mail and get back with tracking so I can monitor the mail ...... Should I add signature to delivery? to make sure it is not dumped on your door porch.  73

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These e-mails came from <k4whc@yahoo.com>.  K4WHF is assigned to a William H Collins from Franklin, KY.  His listed telephone number has been disconnected, as was the telephone number of the requested money recipient.

I think I'll send some Monopoly money.

Yup, there is the distinct smell of a fish somewhere in this.
