On March 9, 2005 I purchased an Icom IC-706 MK II G from a gentleman who had advertised on the Hamtrader.com web site, http://hamtrader.k1dwu.net/ by the name of Jon Schell of Elkhart IN. It was a part-cash, part trade deal for $250 + a RS DX-394 SW Receiver After numerous attempts to contact him, I have still not received the rig as promised and shortly after my attorney sent him a threatening letter he has now had his phone disconnected. It seems that once Mr. Schell is discovered on a particular website and banned, he moves to a new one to continue business-as-usual, so

I am personally aware of at least nine additional victims(including their names, call signs and email addresses)of this fraud so far and have initiated both criminal and civil action against this individual. One victim in particular sent his only rig,  a Kenwood TS-940S and a Postal MO for the difference in "trade for an FT-1000 and has never received anything.

Beware, this scam is nothin less than "Theft by Deception"

If you are aware of any other victims of fraud perpetrated by this man, please direct them to the Elkhart City Police Department at 574-295-7070 and speak to Detective Steve Price.

Update: The office of the Attorney General filed suit against Jon Paul Schell, on behalf of the state of Indiana in Elkhart County Circuit Court. On July 29, 2005, The parties entered into an Agreed Entry (no contest plea) where restitution will be paid.

If you are a victim of Mr. Schell and were not included in the class of victims in this case, I strongly urge that you contact the Indiana Assistant Attorney General Terry Tolliver at (317) 232-6257.

TNX to all who helped out in this case!
