• 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 could be wrong (I have been known to be wrong).Just trying to help others in not getting scammed like I need.

Unfortunately most local/state police agencies won’t respond, they have bigger priorities, they will refer you to a federal agency internet crimes unit maybe?

If payed through PayPal you can get your money back if your smart and have documentation. Unfortunately RadioRefrence “ lost” ?? the classified feedback section when they switched to their new format. It would be nice to have a “ good guys” section on the classified so buyer can be somewhat sure of who they are dealing with. Buyers do your homework, call, check your buyer out First before you send funds, save you the headache of trying to get funds back.
