Please see our ChronoTrader Policies and Terms of Use. Learn more about How To Include Photos In Your Postings.

Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]

Re: Event: Does anyone have experience dealing with oldvint

I guess the first questions to ask-

why banned here?

why banned here?

why the totally different price to CT as shown here?

why the slightly different user name?

There are many other questions in my mind but the above alone speaks volumes to me....

Regarding PayPal, I can only speculate-maybe a fake PayPal confirmation email, maybe he'll take the money and run leaving PP to reimburse you, maybe you'll hear a sob story about why the PP account has been hacked/closed so can you use another method etc etc
Maybe none of the above!

Best, Steve

: open the package to realize you have been fooled and contacting
: paypal?
