A marketplace for chronographs, dive watches and other tool-type wristwatches and timepieces
This guy responded to my WTB ad for memosail Regatta watches. I am a newb, but the pictures of the watch he sold me were on eBay. When I asked for a specific time on the watch he balked, and then gave me his PayPal. I know he isn't the eBay seller, as I ended up contacting them. I didn't put all of our correspondence, but here is the most recent email chain:
"I only accept PayPal friends and family.
PayPal : email@example.com
