• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

A little while back i bought a Pro-2096 from a member on here he has been on here since 2002
The radio came with a build in problem.
The manual button is defective
When im scanning and press manual,all i get is squelch and a very goofy screen.
I contacted the seller,he 1st stated to read the owners manual i simply do not know how to use the radio for p-25's
Not true i formerly own 4 of these
I email back wanting $60.00 of the $180.00 i paid to get the raio rebuilt or fixed.
He sent me an extremly threatening email stating if i pursue the matter he has my name,adress and he would destroy my life and i would deeply regret it.He stated how many years he has been a member
only 1 funny thing
yes he has been here since 2002 me since 2005
I cannot view his history or anything.How does someone block that out on here?
Most important i got a bad radio!
Anyone with feedback on how to handle a clown like this?
Im in Mpls.,MN he is somewhere in california?
Im not going to let this go,im disabled and on a very fixed tight income
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated,this is the 1st time on here i ever had this problem.

It would be great if you can tell us who this person is so we can stay away from his ads.

This why I buy on eBay. I've been scammed before, but after filing a claim and forwarding threatening messages to eBay, I always got my money back. You don't have that guarantee here, but you can post in your experience in the buyer feedback forum so people don't buy from him again.
