Scam call.  Received an email to provide details that were already posted in the ad, and would "wire the money".  IP didn't add up and others have experienced the same scam attempt.  Be careful out there....

Rcvd another possible scam response from another "Alex" N1XAV, for a "for sale item".

"Would like to buy your item."

1.  No mention of address request, where to send payment
2.  No mention of what payment form do I required.
3.  No mention of phone number either way
4.  Never met a buyer that outrights just tells me "I'll buy it", more like "would like to buy it, more pics, more details, answers to questions, etc.

Never smelled right from the outset.  Be carefull guys..... 

So, respond with the details as to acceptable payment method, etc. No responses for 3 days, after pressing finally responds with bought another item, never received your earlier emails. 

Odd, have read receipts on all. Suspect this guy wanted me to ship thinking payment was on the way.  No way.  No cleared payment in hand, nothing gets boxed or shipped.  So not sure if a scam, but fortunately, in any regard, not today.
