It's ashame that this was a scam, and so was an auction for UV-82 radios.
But, I got my funds back immediately via ebay's buyer protection. In my
situation, I was trying to get radios to give away as door prizes at club
meetings. Incidentally, I have had success with some earlier low-ball
auctions, so this wasn't too suspect....I guess the seller(s) realized
this, too. Ho hum.
As the old adage goes: Every dollar saved is a dollar earned!

It all looked pretty legit, if low ball priced. But yes, hams are cheap.
