Ebay seller with fake dials

Told the seller that they have fake dials and they need to pull their auctions, but their pleading ignorance and selling them anyways. Please help report to eBay.
Thanks!


https://m.ebay.com/itm/ROLEX-116610L...T/122892963972

After i told the seller they were fake...

As far as i know they are genuine they all hsve rolex marked on the back these were my lste husbands dials he dealt and collected watches and clocks all im doing is trying to sell whats left, as he left me with no money just assets which i need to sell i will look into this a bit more i dont think they are fake but if they are i will close the listings.

whats wrong with them? all have rolex marking's on the back? and seller has lots of genuine rolex items for sale? perhaps they are innocent? if her story is right I feel sorry for her they may be redone dials? did you think of that?

just looked seller has other make watch dials for sale for smiths watches which look original, perhaps they are just redone dials? the certainly look good condition id give her the benefit here I mean 100% feedback? 815 positive feedback as well so not your typical scammer plus she says in your message she will look into it? you have to give her time to do that id say give her 48 hours and if shes found out more about them then its up to her, ive seen many other same dials for sale on ebay being offered as original? but I cant tell the difference to be honest, but ive seen other dials that look the same to me, perhaps give her a break. you cant tar everyone with the same brush.

in this day and age

I did ask a question earlier the response was "Looking into it as we speak going to local AD in the morning to show them" I'm always suspicious when sellers a vague about the items they are selling. lets wait and see the outcome.

Are you sure the ebay link posted in this thread isn't your acct? These stories seem awfully similar? https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=408971

You could just pop around the corner and ask her.

The description has now been changed on the ebay link. It doesn't have the whole story about her husband not leaving her anything. Allforfun and smithscollector (ebay) are the same person. IMO...

Interesting that the seller on eBay (when looking at other stuff he's selling) and the AllForFun bezel he was selling on our forum had the exact same background.

on our forum


and on eBay

Jesus same background? Really? And 3 years apart? Get a life Sherlock Holmes it's not me I'd say if it was I mean I've done nothing wrong, I don't think the seller has either if I'm honest.

How do you explain the same background?

Coincidence?


Nevermind, banned, thanks guys!!!

Good job, this went deeper than I initially thought!

Moral of the story, good feedback can fool you on ebay!
