Beware of member "jwatchv" !!!
 
This POS messaged me to purchase my Tudor Royal and in the message I'd since deleted (before scam attempt) they said to email them at jyc10011@gmail.com

I sent email and after no reply I deleted the message.

Today I get a response with a link to their watches for trade, and the link goes to a spoof rolexforums site!

Without blinking I entered my username and password. Thankfully I have a password app that immediately informed me that I had compromised my details and logged into a fake website. Sure enough I checked the URL was totally different but was a snapshot of how TRF login page looked in December.

Be careful folks!!!

PS: the link he sent lists a legit TRF link but actually takes you here if it's still up:

I noticed this member has an IG and phone number whereas the communication I received was with just that sketchy ass gmail address. Possible compromise of a real seller. Mods please message the member or I may reach out to them on IG as well. Someone may have hacked their account.

Two factor Auth is a must.

PS: I just called the number on the original member 'jwatchv' previous sales, and spoke to the (ex) owner of the account Julian, and apparently he is aware that his account has been hacked and seems to have abandoned use of it due to this.

I'll let the mods verify or suspend the account as they see fit, if anyone hears from this clown please be advised the original account owner does not use TRF on this account any longer

that account is now banned. It's better if you report suspicious or misleading messages by clicking on the red triangle in the message window, rather than just post here and hope a mode sees it.

He did the same thing to me but thankfully the scam is so old and played out I recognized it immediately and reported his email as a phishing scam.

He also emailed me about an item I sold weeks ago. Didn't sign the email so I didn't even bother replying to him.

Was actually looking for that and it was right in front of my face, thanks

Thanks all. Should have been obvious I guess, definitely was in other forums but having just come off a successful deal from my OP here I saw past it. Just glad I was able to catch it in time to change my password.
