    Scam alert

    My scam antenna is buzzing and I thought I should share. There is no free lunch. Buyer beware.

    _________________________________________

    This is what i was trying to avoid i e-mail to you that this is my
    first time selling watch here i don't like selling watch cos of alot
    of scam and i have had from people before mailing you that i have the
    watch for sale but this is my first time here. i have to watch for
    sell, Actually I and my family came down here to London, United
    Kingdom for a short vacation unfortunately we got mugged at the park
    of the hotel where we lodge ,all cash,credit card,camera and cell were
    stolen off us but luckily for us we still have some things to sale.

    We've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping
    issues at all we are having problems sorting the hotel bills and the
    hotel manager won't let us checkout until we settle the bills, We are
    freaked out at the moment that the reason why am selling out my watch.

    Kindly get back to me if you can help us out by buying the watch i
    have for sale.

    Thanks! I hate Spam!

    Seriously though, did you inquire about an ad posted here?

    No, I had posted a WTB for a bracelet for my IWC AQuatimer. He offered to sell me the bracelet, strap, and throw in the watch for 450 GBP. Quite the deal, no? I get these all the time outside the forum so it wasn't remotely tempting. I just hadn't seen it in here before. Now if someone does get an AT for 450 quid I'm going to feel like a total chump.

    That address is about 3 miles from me, it is a suburban residential street, no hotels!

    Maybe you should pop round and have a chat with the old boy. Who knows, maybe he really does have an AT to sell for cheap. :))

    Re: Scam alert

    We've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping
    issues at all we are having problems sorting the hotel bills

    - so I will be selling all my watches, I have one of every kind, even one I dont know I have until you tell me you want

    and my sister, a Nigerian princess, will also be helping sort the hotel bills by transferring from her bank account in Niger... errr ... London, England, hotel bills is $500, but bank man say she need transfer minimum $2000, she is needing America friend account, she will give $1500 to America friend account, just give $500 - do you know anyone can help?

    ----

    does stink like hell, and not new at all (even the sob story) - they're sitting at an internet cafe looking through all these want to buy ad, copy and pasting this same story and emailing them to a whole bunch hoping for a bite

    they'll either pay with a deposit or a fake western union (they have their buds working in western union)

    so please do be careful

    Let's send Peakay. He looks tough enough to handle the situation.
