    Default Scammed by member Chootrain

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to post a warning that I (and at least one other member that I am aware of) was scammed by member Chootrain in the Rep Watch Trade section.

    Please be advised that his or her actual name is Jessa Huervana Moleno in case they attempt to sign up again under another IP or on one of the sister forums.

    This member claimed to be in Singapore but I believe they are actually in the Philippines.

    Have you reported to the mods? While I'm sure that your intentions are well meant, you have to be careful of publicly naming members. @nembo

    Mods are fully aware and have suspended this member.

    I'm sure you don't mean to say that publicly naming someone is worse than stealing from me!

    No, not concerned about the scammer, but wasn't sure if the mods had been appraised of it. If they are happy for you to expose him that's good.
    What was the setup? Was it money, watches or both?

    He posted a Calibre de Cartier for sale in Rep Watch Trade. He had been a member since 2018 and apparently sold a watch or two prior to this incident along with posting some innocuous replies to random posts. Nothing screamed scam about this (I have been buying and selling on forums for over 20 years). I paid him for the Cartier via Paypal (regular payment, not FF or Gift) and opted for purchase protection. I have filed a dispute with Paypal.

    Once paid, he said he would update me once shipped. About 5 days passed and I had not heard from him, so I inquired as to the tracking information. He did not respond to my PM even though I saw he was online since I sent it - red flag number 1. Shortly thereafter, I notified a mod who proceeded to contact him. He did not respond to the mod, so the mod suspended his account here.

    Found out afterward that another member had been scammed by him as well.

    My main goal in posting his name is that if he signs up under a new IP and username and tries this again, people will know his real name when it comes time to pay him - and possibly recognize him as a scammer.

    People need to read these kinds of posts and stay aware.

    Good for you that you opted for buyer protection in that case.
