Fake Sold Posts

I was looking on the sales board and noticed a seller listed a SubC at a high price and then posted again a minute later as sold. I was surprised because it wasn’t at a great price and there is nothing special about the watch. My curiosity led me to go through his older posts and noticed he did this on other watches as well, but posted that they were sold the very same minute. It seems this is a blatant attempt to manipulate buyers’ perceptions, but is this common?

Many sellers make a new thread advertising the old thread as sold, to draw attention to the fact of the watch being sold.

Nothing new and nothing to be wary of.

Watches are so hot nowadays, some people trade-in their brains for them.
