Sad to say I must be a magnet for scammers. Over the last two days I’ve had two separate people attempt to scam me through a WTB thread I had posted. It’s getting bad. Everyone needs to seriously watch out and not be stupid when making expensive deals.
It starts out I post a WTB thread regarding a Ball watch, basically just looking for a Ball watch around $1,000.00. A half hour later I get a pm from a user that just joined with 0 post history.At this point I knew it was going to be a scam, this is how 90% of scams start, but I email him anyway. Immediately throws up some red flags. I am not an idiot so I obviously was able to spot this Jackass as a scammer immediately but people please if the deal is too good to be true it always is.Originally Posted by brandonwatches
So this is our conversation, and of course he takes any price I offer him and surprise surprise only will accept a wire transfer for payment.
And of course, he says he’s the original owner but a reverse image lookup of the three pictures he sent me show that obviously that was a LIE. Avoid this user going by BRANDON LUKAS AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At this point I ask him for his name and address just so I would be comfortable with the deal, and he gives me some bogus name. His email is registered to Brandon Lukas but gave me a females name and address.
