This is the 3rd time he has changed his call since stealing my equipment.

Beware, check out anyone your dealing with, if I would have taken the time to check, I would have found out he has already he has done very similar dealings in the past....

another thread..................you gotta be kidding. Guess I'll repost this on here as well:


Well I guess the time has come to realize there are bad hams too. I hope and pray that Don Pinson, aka N7DPP didn't just scam me. We agreed on a trade for my new iPad 3 for his Yaesu FT-897, and not ever having a issue trading with a fellow ham, agreed. I shipped my iPad out on Tuesday the 12th of Feb. Insured, tracking number, the usual.....He responded back to me with some tracking number that does not work on the USPS site. Finding this as a concern, I emailed Don and he said " well it can take a few days" for the tracking number to register. I have never once had this issue with the USPS system. So, I tracked MY iPad as it traveled across the country, while I had nothing to reference as to the whereabouts of my incoming rig. And I still have no rig. And he's not responding to about 6-10 emails I've sent to him over the past 30 or so hours. Amazing.

Rest assured, I will take legal action if he does not come through. Based on the high number of out of state transactions, this is a federal offence, and not the first one.

Again, I hope I am wrong and the radio is in fact en-route. But if it's not, hello legal system. Who else has to go through this before something is done.

I would love to see comments,

Patrick, KC8UAV

Reading the posts about the theiving Pinson.... Seems that all you hams that are affected by this scammer should band together and contact the FBI. The value of the items being stolen, place this in the felony category and certainly should be able to be procecuted easily when so many are involved.

As a follow on thought, the Federal Attorney's office for the state of Washington (probably in Seattle), would be a great place to begin.  They have a lot of young attorneys just waiting to prosecute a case like this.

As a warning to EVERYONE,

Don Pinson, N7DPP agreed to trade his used Yaesu FT-897D for my new iPad. We agreed that we will each pay shipping, insure it and provide a tracking number. My iPad was sent out on tuesday the 12th, February 2013. According to N7DPP, (Don Pinson) He did the same. My tracking number was valid and I followed my Ipad online, watching it pass through mail centers and eventually leading to his doorstep. The entire time this was happening, Don Pinson said the tracking number was "just delayed" and then the story changed to "the radio is lost in the mail" I've never had a single package lost, EVER.
So, to my suprise I get a email from Don stating that my iPad was not sent complete, as it was without the registration card and manual. Anyone that has knowledge of ipads or iPhones knows they don't come with manuals or registration cards. According to Don Pinson, N7DPP, he has previously owned a iPad, and I find it SHOCKING that he is asking for something that does not exist in the "apple world". Now, even though Don said the ft-897d was "lost", I get a email on Sunday the 17th stating that he "got it back" (odd, I guess only in WA postal services are open on sunday) He claims that still the iPad is without the registration card and manual. I emailed him back stating that again THEY DO NOT COME WITH MANUALS OR REGISTRATION CARDS.

So, after a full week of talking to my fellow hams I get a message on my phone this morning stating Don Pinson N7DPP is now selling a screwdriver antenna. I go to the link http://swap.qth.com/view_ad.php?counter=1047823 and to my suprise (not really suprised) there in the background in his photo is my iPad, with grey belkin cover getting a nice charge, and to the left under a stack of papers and his glasses is the Yaesu FT-897D that was supposedly "lost in the postal system". Now, I have proof he has accepted and is in posession of the iPad, and is still in posession of the Yaesu FT-897D.....Hello fraud alert. Don, you have to the end of the day today to mail out the Yaesu, or return my iPad or I am calling the police. Do whats right, be a man and admit your hands have been caught in the cookie jar. The evidence is pretty strong as you can see.

for all of you other Hams, I'm not the only one who's had to deal with Don Pinson N7DPP. As a matter of fact, the other people with stolen items hae almost a identical story as mine.....Apparently Don Pinson, N7DPP (WHO'S CHANGED CALL SIGNS MANY TIMES) is the only man on earth to have a 100% failure rate with our tried and true postal system. Here is some links to prove my point.
