    Beware of Willwee

    I posted about buying a specific watch BOX, not the watch itself. This user misunderstood and sent me images of the watch and his asking price. Little did he know, the images he used were MINE which he pulled from online.

    Do not buy from Willwee.

    The email used was [email protected] under the name Goodwin Genovese.

    The first thing you should do is report all suspicious activity to the Mod Team via our report function. We didn't find this feedback post until 2 hours after it was made. Then we took time to investigate, discovering member Willwee is a returning banned scammer. That's over 2 additional hours that he was free to scam members less lucky than you.

    Please please please report first before doing anything else.

    Think of the children.

    I do apologize. I will certainly do that going forward. Where do I go to report something that happens outside the WUS system?

    I'm not sure I understand your question...do you mean on another forum, web site, sales site, or auction site?

    It depends where it happens, each forum and site has its own reporting procedures. It never hurts to post about your experience here to warn others. If you were scammed there's a possibility the scammer is also here, so a quick report with their username and email address will help us ferret them out.

    I started a WTB thread. He DM'd me saying he had one for sale and to please provide my email address so he could send me more details. I replied with my email address and he sent me several pictures which I recognized were not his. At that point, we were conversing through email and not on WUS.

    The contact was first made thru WUS, so we can (and have) banned his account here.

    We encourage members not to take communication off site. If you take communication to email and we ban the scammer you won't know. We've had several members victimized after the scammer was discovered and banned from WUS.
