Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
I’ve been contacted by several forum members who I know, who have been contacted by a scammer posing to be me. This scammer has offered a WG Pepsi GMT w/ box and papers for $19,500 among other Watches and is posing to be a seller. Chances are he contacted me regarding a watch at some point, asked for references, which I provided and he is using them to have people vouch on my behalf so that he can scam them. He used the name Autaviano Augustus (Enrique)
He is contacting folks using this email address: email@example.com. Notice the two AA in the beginning of the email address. My original address only has one A.
He is located in Philadelphia and this is his cell phone number 267-483-9444. When called he will say something like this is my personal number or some BS.
Please spread he word and be careful out there guys. $20k is a lot of money to be scammed out of.
