I was contacted this week by someone who was concerned about a seller/s and has got some useful information to post.
In case of confusion-steer clear of all the below scammers!
'I have been looking at a post from petit-swiss …. the 1971 GMT 1675
Been having email conversations via his firstname.lastname@example.org address.
I have suspicions on this guy and I see that you posted one time on a sale asking for a decent tagged photo . which he never did supply.
Also his name seems to crop up with some other scammers … bradclement1 for example … whom petit swiss gave me as a so-called reference.
And his most recent post of the Daytona for $9000 is extremely suspect.
He says he can’t supply additional photos of the GMT because its with his ’shipper’ and the shipper can’t open the package.
He also said he would sell it without the bracelet by my request .. so clearly he would have to remove the bracelet from the package … but that obviously conflicts with his statement that he can’t get access.
Here are some suspicious links.
This one refers to another scammer and emails associated with it .. petit swiss is one of them although he was using Petit.email@example.com at the time.
He keeps pressing me for payment … and he finally gave me some personal details … apparently going by Allen Dorn
