SCAMMED ON MY 1st TRF DEAL, BEWARE of bigbaddom3

Well I have to embarrassingly admit I got scammed for $19k on my first RTF deal by bigbaddom3

I wired funds for the watch this morning and of course he is now saying they never got there because of some bogus story at the bank and even wanted me to send the funds again to another account.

bigbaddom3 has two listings up actively, one for a 2021 Hulk, which is the one that got me. I checked and saw he had been a member since 2013. I contacted him and asked for references he sent me a contact email of someone (which was off TRF) who he sold a Daytona to and linked me to the who's who section on TRF where I saw he was recommended by a derwatch user. I contacted both and they confirmed he was a solid seller, but now it is obvious they were his accounts. I asked for a facetime with the watch, he instead sent me a video of the watch with our email exchanges,dates and user names. I should've known better but let emotions take the lead instead of doing more due dillenegence.

My bank is attempting to recall the wire but it was already completed a few hours ago and they can not gaurantee the funds will be returned, meanwhile bigbaddom3 is saying this is just a misunderstanding and his bank just needs more time to get the funds back to me. Gut wrenching experience that I dont wish on anyone. I've always used escrow services for online deals and of course this the first time I didn't.

His listings are still active , BEWARE!!!
