• 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:

I'm with Scosgt on this. I just checked the "brand new sellers" profile. Just created , no feedback ,no record at all. I wish you luck , but I would contact Amazon if I were you. That's 40% less than anywhere else. Mike

And that didn't set off any alarms when you read that part??? A well known scam setup.

Good luck!

Very likely the seller will just take the money and disappear. Amazon will eat the money, you will get a refund. But why out yourself through that?
No one sells that scanner for that money.

Total scam. I hope you didn't bite on it.
You could be in for a serious case of having your identity stolen if you did.

You may be covered by Amazon and you will get a refund. Although it appears to be coming from Amazon, the confirmation, the ad and the tracking info is all fake.

However, the scammer will have your personal information (name, address, etc.).

It's called a phishing scam. The scammer is simply trying to get you to take the bait and respond to the ridiculously low priced item.

If you did make a transaction, be sure to keep a close eye on your bank accounts, checking, etc.

Amazon really sucks for allowing this to happen.

There are fake ads like this all over their site. That's one reason I don't shop on Amazon.

I'm happy for you that you sensed something was wrong.

Glad you decided to contact Amazon, and that you came out ok. If nothing else you may have helped somebody else out, and put a stop to these criminals. That's all they are too, low life's. I will say that the Ham Station price is really good! And that IS a very reputable dealer. Mike

You would have REALLY been screwed. You buy the gift card and send it to someone, you are NOT getting a refund from Amazon. If the card is cashed, they have fulfilled their legal obligations.
If you don't receive merchandise, you have a claim. If you receive what you paid for (gift card) and give it to someone, that is your problem.
You could possibly prevail in Court because Amazon hosted the scam, but good luck with that.
