Hello All,

Once again, it appears that this person is using the same scam he ran on QTH last week under KI6MPJ, under a new call WD8MLV. I have included both ads that were slightly rearranged, but the verbage and options are the same. He added a serial number for the K3 (very close to the one he emailed me last week--4835) and now additionally for the P3. This scammer will send you pictures but they will not match the ad most likely (he sent pictures from an e-bay ad last week). It would seem this is probably Paciana Benitez Ashton again or a related scammer again. The call is from Ohio and the IP shows a Nevada/Arizona location.

73,

Roger (AE3RT)

P.S. Someday I may find a radio I can actually buy instead of another scam:-)
