Hmmnn - I am disappointed about that, still with I don't know how many million q's in all there is little scope for human intervention. It does occur to me though that an op could attempt to avoid a bust by duping the previous contact and, as the culprit, get away scott free whilst the innocent party loses out with an NIL.

The guys who wrote the log checking software could give you a more
authoritative answer, but I think it's likely that the other guy will get a
NIL penalty.  I've heard them say that the log checking software is somewhat
liberal in matching a call sign but if it has nothing to work with except a
serial number, it would probably assess a NIL.

The point value of the NIL penalty is the average point value of all QSOs.  

Unfortunately, the other guy would lose a mult, too.

Experienced contesters know this just happens to everyone sometimes and
write it off as a cost of doing business.

I got a warning from the Robot of a bad qso.
When I look at the line it is just garbage, nothing like a callsign but does
have a rcv'd s/n which doesn't look anything like any other qso around that
time so, as  I just messed up, am I right in assuming. having now submitted
the log 'as is', that the other guy will not lose the contact so long as I
copied the s/n correctly?
What criteria is used for removing the 3 qso penalty, would they be 1 pt or
3 pt qso's and would they involve mult's?
