    [for sellers] just a heads up on a possible scam

    Hullo,

    this is mostly for the sellers out there, thought I'd share an experience I had the other night ~

    got an email from someone in Singapore telling me he wants to place an order, didnt mention which watch (I had several up),
    this is the exact wording:
    "... I want to order your product. Can you ship to Singapore by FedEx, UPS or DHL?
    About the payment method, I choose credit card. Please reply me as
    soon as possible."

    I don't do credit card, but he was insistent on using credit card, and when I asked for his shipping address he gave me an address of a freight forwarder,
    not only that, but he added an "A" on the unit number, along with a business name that doesn't exist,
    (for example, real: ABC Company 123 Real Street, Unit 1, and what he wrote is: DEF Company 123 Real Street, Unit 1A -- which doesn't exist)

    after doing a bit of research, there has been scams involving stolen credit cards and the thieves would use a freight forwarding company address to hide their true location,

    anyway, just a bit of information that hopefully may help you guys out
