Forum member leob44517@gmail.com messaging me regarding my “wanted to buy” post for a full gold day date 228238.

He Says he has one brand new for £29,000

I said my budget is around £23000 for a used one

He says he will sell it for £23300! (Convenient £6k discount!!).

Says he is located in UK and wants me to email him direct and not through the forum. Strange as his profile says he is from Fort Worth in USA.

My barge pole is at full length and I’m touching him with it.

What do you all think?!

I have been messaging this guy to wind him up and see how far he would actually take it! This guy is a f***i** thief!!!

I have sent him messages asking him to send me a tagged photo of the watch with the time set at a day, date and time “just for my reassurance”. He has photoshopped the watch that is on Chrono24!!! See below at his photoshop “skills” lol.


I also told him that I have sent payment just to get his greedy thieving heart racing!

He replied back with screen shot of his PayPal account saying that the money hasn’t yet been received - his PayPal account screenshot showed dollars.

I said to him: “sorry I missed a letter from your PayPal email address, I will resend it now. Also I thought you were in London? Your PayPal account on your screen shot shows dollars?!?!”

He said “sorry I sent the wrong PayPal account screen shot, here is my UK PayPal account screen shot”

He then Sent me a photoshopped screen shot of his PayPal account in ££ - see below.

His PayPal account in dollars. Then when questioned why his account is in dollars if he lives in London. He sends me photoshopped UK (£) PayPal screenshot

This guy needs punishing! Can the police do anything?!

Also I feel sorry for “Robert rask” on his PayPal account.

If anyone knows Robert please show him this thread.

Thanks. I’m not sure why the payment keeps getting rejected on PayPal?! Ok, I will do bank transfer now for the full amount. Please confirm once received. Just one question, how come your bank account is in Sunderland but you live in London? Sorry for all the questions but just playing it safe. Thanks.

Mods can we put this thread somewhere where it gets seen more so that nobody falls for his dirty thieving scam?

Should I contact the police? This guy needs to be located! It seems he scams other people too if you google search his email address!

It’s exactly where it should be in the forum. If you’ve been a victim then absolutely contact the police as well as your bank.

He’s now sent me a copy of his passport to prove he is genuine. Haha!!! This guy must be on the edge of his seat and shouting to his wife “get out the red panties, we are about to get £23,000!”
