First it seemed the box was not opened/damaged but it turned out the thief used a blowdryer or something like that to warm up the take and stick it on the box again after taking the watch.
    Because of the registered weight during the shippingprocess, it was clear where exactly the watches ware taken out of the box and the postal firm paid for the loss.
    A similar thing happened to me a few years back, purchased a Superocean from Puretime, what turned up was a box with a cheap fake knock off in it and not a superocean(Im talking total rubbish fake), I had bought previous watches from Puretime so I know the package came from him and I trust him 100% not to send a something like that.


    My only conclusion is that someone at the Postal holding depot knew what to look for (not hard really) opened it and replaced my much anticipated Superocean with some POS hoping I would blame the supplier rather than suspect it of being opened, these thing do happen unfortunately.

    If that were the case, then what about the other thread (grand prix) that the same seller is selling? Looks like seller went ghost getting payment per thread.

    This isn't e regional (Italy) issue this is a about a POS scammer who pretended to send a watch that never arrived. He tried scamming someone before and was caught and forced to rectify the matter, although the thread was closed and the resolution that was achieved was never posted. He came up with a new scam wherein he could blame a middleman (the postal) but most likely perpetuated this scam from the beginning. I tried to watch the original packing video to compare it to the package received by Chris but the original packing video has been removed.

    Why generalize the concept, involving all the Italians who read this post in your opinion? I find your contribution useless. But let us reflect well, in other countries, in all countries, there are phenomena to be stigmatized. But what helps the unfortunate OP? Your word loses its meaning. It becomes a light word, a joke, a game, something to laugh about. If you mean it seriously, you should apologize.

    If it went down the way the seller would have you believe, he sent the watch and it was replaced by a thief/rogue postal worker with the stone and re-sealed. Seems we all agree it's highly unlikely that he doesn't still have the watch in his ownership.

    Hoping for the best in your situation. Here in the US via USPS you'll run into several issues trying to insure things for more than $500.

    went trough the whole story and the similar story with the AP from the same buyer.
    One word : disgusting.
    Im completely disgusted by the tactics and by the lack of humanity to **** someone over like this. What a disgusting human being.
    It sucks so much that after all this time, there is still no solution for both buyers who got scammed. What a sad ending for this forum.

    I can't relax with this, that's a whole lot of cash to let go of without a fight, and I'm not on about violence as such as the OP states that's not his thing which is fair enough but surely something else can be done for him here.

    I like to think RG is one big family and at times like this we all need to do what ever is possible.

    Mods is there anyway to track these aholes. I feel like they make a new email/account sell an item or two and then look for the next big score. Im done dealing with newbies on high value sales or trades.

    Judging by OPs responses tracking is not an issue. I am not sure if itís possible to lay a charge, given the nature of the goods and the different geography, but I really donít see how a positive outcome is possible in this case.
