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...]
Got one from a Mark Burnett in the UK. Probably also a scammer, asking for moneygram. He sent images from Stewart's FS ad from last year--so he's clearly capable of matching watch numbers with images from this board.
: Warning: If you post a "Want to Buy" (WTB) message, be
: very careful with any response offering to sell you the watch
: that you are seeking. We do not have registrations / formal
: feedback / due diligence procedures, so there are crooks who
: comb this forum (and similar forums) offering to sell watches
: that they do not own.
: Use common sense with any response to your WTB posting: (a) ask
: detailed questions about the watch; (b) ask for a photo of the
: watch at a specified time (say, 9:30 . . . my birthday), with
: today's newspaper in the background; (c) ask the seller for
: references; (d) etc., etc.
: I believe that we all enjoy the openness of the ChronoTrader forum,
: but it comes with some risks. Be smart in buying and selling
: watches here.
