ALL BEWARE!!! Ernie Rice, KC8YOQ BEWARE!!!  DAK X PURCHASE
 
I was contacted by Ernie Rice, KC8YOQ about him selling a Dak X CB Radio. I was told he only takes Cash or MO. I sent the MO for his purchase price + 50.00 shipping that he already checked on with UPS Packing. The next day he said he had a amp that worked good with this radio for $50.00 more if I wanted it send another MO for 50.00 which I did. The money order took 7 days to get there using priority mail, which seemed long. Once he got them he started to delay shipping. First day he lost track of time. Second day he had to work overtime. Third day his back hurt. I asked for him to return the money but he said he would ship the next day after the weekend Monday for sure. He than put it up for sale on face book mud ducks and sold it for more money and emailed me that I was a loser and he is sending the money back. NO MONEY YET! Two weeks later he is saying he ripped out the money orders and sent them back. Never received! I am out 400.00 dollars. He is the worst of the worst. To make an extra 50 bucks. Emails saved on complete transaction! BEWARE!!!!!!!

Sorry this happened to you, but this is why Google is your friend.  By typing "KC8YOQ" into Google, the first result returned is a 2005 qrz.com post from another ham claiming that KC8YOQ was untrustworthy.  Whether he's a scammer or not is left for each individual to decide, but when I see a post like that, red flags go up.

Dang CBers!

If you want to read a bunch of technical bologna, read the how it works area about the Servo Amplitude Modulator

He seems to be an occasionally  shady fellow:

Dak X had horrible reputation. They were nothing more than eye candy.

Not knowing all the details, I'll still venture a comment. It appears that DARTICUS is a CB operator. Not that there's anything wrong with that. And Mr Rice is selling him a radio and amp.

"The next day he said he had a amp that worked good with this radio for $50.00 more if I wanted it send another MO for 50.00 "

The seller is providing an "illegal" amp to a person who will use it on a CB frequency. So he is 'aiding and abetting' an illegal act. So why would anyone expect the seller to be trustworthy?

Again, I'm not making allegations regarding Darticus or Mr Rice.

Darticus  Contact where you bought the money orders (hopefully the post office) and see if they have been cashed in . Then if you sent the money orders by US mail file a report with your local postal inspector postal fraud is a federal offence.

SAM:  you have to read a library rack full of government policy documents to come across as much seat-of-the-pants gobbledygook as that typed sheet had on it.

Thats a good idea, I did that one time for $100 I tried to buy a radio a couple years ago. it's sad people try to scam you. Using a money order is taking a chance. Maybe if you use delivery confirmation or something else like insurance.
