If anybody knows Clifford Blackstone, W7LDO please let him know that someone is using his callsign to scam people with the "my shipping agent will send cashier's check" scam. Mr. Blackstone has no email address listed on QRZ so if anybody knows him please let him know. I was contacted through the QTH classifieds and reported it to Scott Neader, KA9FOX and he has blocked the sender's IP address from ever accessing the QTH website.
For everyone else's information the person's name (probably fake), email and IP address is listed below:

ALEX
robalex_007@hotmail.com
IP address 80.179.249.98

Original message I received:

Name: ALEX
Callsign: W7LDO
E-mail: robalex_007@hotmail.com

The response is:

Just scanning through the various posts, & saw this one. And I had to go back through my saved emails. I thought that email address looked familiar (robalex_007@yahoo.com). I had "dealings" with him in June. I played along and let him send his "check", which bounced in about two weeks. Fortunately, I had told "him" up front that no $$$ would be sent until the check cleared both ends (mine and his bank). So he never suckered me, and I learned the thrill of scamming the scammers.
I have one or two others I'm "playing" right now. So more later, when all is finished.
If you look in the eham classifieds > SCAMS, you'll see a couple of postings from me on Mr. Alex Robinson & Jamal Moore.
