That is interesting Yan.  Maybe the false QSLs are to get a more rare call.  Some report that they get lots of false calls--many complaints from the W-region!  I have never received any false QSLs in over 3000 contacts, although I have gotten a few broken ones that listed me as AA0AA and not XE1/AA0AA.

>I have 193 confirmed countries with LotW for 223 worked. Only CW and SSB, really few DIGI.
>I was more than surprised of that confirmation rate, but it I confirm you receive more confirmation from contesters and CWers than from SSB DXers...
>I don't look at eQSL anymore as I receive far to more fake QSO requests.

>> My Winlog32 does the eQSL thing automatically.. it does NOT do LOTW auto.. far from it.IN FACT.. I have not been successful with LOTW in well over two years. IF winlog32 or any logging program.. like N1MM would do the LOTW auto.. I'd be plumb happy...and so would a whole lotta other folk too. (the ones that need a WY confirmation).
