    Question Can a mod check the IP of this member to see if the account was phished?

    So I usually surf the Sales Corner when I'm bored and look for watches that tickle my fancy to buy on impulse or to see if I can spot obvious scammers. I've found a few in the past, which I've reported and the mods are quick to act.

    I just came across this sale:
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/fs-rolex-submariner-116610ln-2018-a-5081465.html


    I didn't want to file a mod report because I'm nowhere near 100% certain that it's a phished account, but the syntax of the post is familiar and a departure from what the guy usually posts on F29. It's a 9-year-old account, which further makes me skeptical. I usually try to find the image being reused on a different listing, but Submariners are super common and it's unlikely.

    If I'm wrong, apologies to dsimon55 and the mod's time I wasted.

    I don't even know if I'm posting on the right subforum.

    You should have made a Mod Report as it took me 5 hours to find this post.

    Yes, that account was hacked and banned from a report we received an hour ago.

    Sorry, was just slightly suspicious and didn't want to annoy the mods with a report without 100% certainty on my part

    thanks for keeping the community safe

    No worries, we'll probably see more hacked accounts this month: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/adm...l#post50427075
