    I bought a watch from a member some while ago and it came in a plastic envelope much like that. I don't understand why someone would take so little care when packaging something like this. I was lucky as it seemed undamaged, but by more luck than good packaging. Was this item also for sale by the seller? Any chance he had two sales going and posted the wrong watches to the wrong buyers?
    Just trying to be charitable, but it doesn't look good.

    Seller claims he sent the right watch and was tampered with along the way. I want to believe them but that would mean someone along the way happen to open the package and have a crap watch to replace a better one?

    I've replied you in pm and talked to the seller
    This all story is really strange and you admitted to me that you know the seller, (who is a long standing member like you) and you have dealt with him before to your satisfaction...so my question is why opening a paypal dispute?
    You've been around forever and you should know better
    Anyway we'll keep this convo in pm between you and i

    With the occasion,i remind everyone that opening an unsanctioned dispute without trying to resolve your issue first, with the help of the forum staff, can cost you your account on RG and get you banned

    Me and xkurkox bought 2 watches from his VIP sale post and I am still waiting for mine to come. I will keep this post updated when I get mine.
    I am keeping my fingers crossed. I paid for 3717-01. I have a bad feeling about this now that I have seen what xkurkox got.
    Here is the sale post: FS: Concepta IWC 3717-01 Concepta IWC 3717-02

    Those tough plastic bags are not easily opened without leaving a trace. It should be obvious if it has been tampered with.
    I suppose the other option would be that the bag was replaced as well. Is the tracking number on the packaging the same as the sender gave you? I think that from now on I'll take an image of any package before I send it through the post. Still can't believe a forum member would send a $1400 watch packed up like that.

    It wasnt the crown was broken off but its a $20 rep. I guess we will see if dvn gets his watch then the watch was stolen in transit and I will apologize to the seller. Hopefully it was insured even if not im willing to share the financial hit with the seller. If theft happen it was at his post because the bag was sealed and you cant open them and reseal just replace.

    It would be a good idea to always video your box/bag openings and show as much detail before/during/after opening as possible. I do and have done it for a long time. Pretty much a must when buying hifi gear or other fragile electronics online and not a bad idea with other stuff too.

    That sounds like bull****
    Far-fetched customs agent had a watch to swap it with
    Unless it was a seized as well
    Still hard to believe

    Ok the only other scenario is the seller cutting ties with the rep world and getting as much as he can with his knowledge, unlikely but I was at the end of that type of situation before.
    The watches listed were highly desirable at good prices. The money doesn't upset me as much as not receiving that watch.

    Mine was delivered with the right watch although it could use a little more padding for shipping.
    I am sorry for your situation xkurkox and I hope you will get resolved.
    Edit: I doubt that the tang buckle and the strap on mine are GEN because there was no marking on either the strap or the buckle so I am little disappointed.

    None of this makes any sense. If the seller was a scammer, he's being very selective. Sends the correct watch to one buyer and a cr*p watch to another, both in similar packaging. If nembo gets to the bottom of this, I'd love to know the outcome.

    Thats a relief looks like mine was stolen, that padded white bag was not there just the ems bag and the clear bubble wrap.

    I think Kutio sold those watches at very reasonable prices... In my opinion he could've easily listed them for higher prices without raising hackles... The bloke doesn't look like someone who will scam people...packaging could've been much better even more so since these were expensive Franken pieces...the receipt of a different cheap watch by the recipient is an extraordinary incident... Like someone said before.. The seller needs to confirm if the mailbag was the same.. That will clear things up..

    I hope this ends well for everyone...hence proved again that high value purchase between continents will always have its risks...

    The date and time on both the packages appear to be inline 11/03/19 and 15:34 one one and 15:37 on the other...

    So did someone cut open the plastic mail bag & made a swap and taped it back?

    It would be an extraordinary thing that somebody at the post office would intercept a package, take out the rep watch and (here comes the extraordinary part) replace it with another rep watch. I mean who knows about rep watches, works at the post office AND manages to intercept a random package with a rep he can replace with another rep? Seems highly unlikely to me. I know lots of post office people steal packages but this is little too fantastic thing to happen. What would even be the postal workers motive to replace it? He could just steal the whole package or put anything available to him into the package instead of getting a cheap rep from somewhere to use. Makes no sense at all.

    And you cannot open those plastic things without leaving evidence. If its opened and reclosed it will be easily detected.

    I know Kutio dealt with him before, I also dealt with Rex and Chief if old timers remember those characters. He said he shipped it in a white envelope just like in dvn got it. But my outer ems bag was sealed I ripped the other end.

    Default Scammed m2m sale

    Scammed m2m sale anything is possible when shipping. As a former package slinger you learn what’s in packages based off weight and feel. It’s highly possible this story is true. Just because it doesn’t happen often doesn’t mean it’s not true.
