I listed a want for an item and received a reply which immediately caught my attention because of the grammar. Really, these Nigerian scammers should go to night school. They were using the call W6POK. This ham passed away in November of 2011.

Bastard sent one to me too saying he was W6POK with email thuges02@gmail.com. His email reply via QTH.com ad was simply "i have the item for sale" He texted me to my tele # listed but did not reply to my call (I tracked the area code to the greater LA area)

At the bottom of the QTH Ad it says (Legitimately added by QTH.COM) In case this form is being abused, the IP address of the person submitting this form is: 65.98.105.121 And this translates to Rutherford, NJ

I just left a complaint with the FBI at https://complaint.ic3.gov/ctf.aspx
