So here's the story. I posted a WTB for a certain watch a few weeks ago. I received a nice message from a guy that had the watch. We went back and forth for a while and figured out a deal. He claimed his bank didn't accept Paypal transfers and asked if I could send by Western Union. I sent the money and he confirmed that he received and that he had sent the watch out but had left the tracking information in his car and he would send it to me later that day. Well, that was 6 days ago. He had responded to every message I sent within the hour so I figured he had a mobile device that he was able to send from. The watch was said to have been sent from California last Monday and I am in the NYC area. I expected the watch on Friday or Saturday, but nothing came. I guess it could still be delivered on Monday or even Tuesday (delayed due to the holiday mail?)but beyond that I would really worry.
So... what to do? I guess I can contact Western Union and report it. I feel like I may have been screwed for the very first time in my life buying watches. I have purchased close to 50 watches over the years and never had a single issue. I'm hoping this ends well but at this point, this really sucks.
