Had a simple Want out for a replacement knob and this stooge emails me:  (Note:  Asking me if my item is still for sale (which I am looking for - LOL).

IP is in Mass.

This was in response to QTH.COM

His response sounds like typical scammer talk -- ignoring the fact he doesn't know the difference between "BUY" and "SELL".
