Beware: Timewarped80

Account could be compromised. Listed a BLNR for $13k, then dropped to $11.5k. Emailed the address in the post. He wants a wire or crypto. Finally agrees to PP f/f, but the PP address belongs to someone else, supposedly his father-in-law. I looked up the PP name, address matches a 20-something chemist in Oregon.

Proceed with caution

I am new to the forum and had the same experience with this guy yesterday. Tried posting the warning this am with links but said I couldnít because I didnít have enough posts (need 10) so I just replied to a bunch of threads to get my posts up so here goes.

Iím in the market for a new blnr and saw this guys post on the classifieds. Posts 13K in original post see below:

https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=717979

Few days later drop to 11.5K (red flag #1)

I email him offering 10.8K he accepts right away. (Red flag #2)

Wants only a wire which I am not comfortable with. I offer a F2F he declines.
Now I know itís as shady as can be so I just want to expose him. Tell him I want to proceed. He sends me bank info with the name Larry Gregg Smith. Lives in FL. US Bank bank account with routing #. I google Larry Gregg Smith and I find this:

https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=701627

I continue my investigation lol by googling the routing # which is a US Bank in Minneapolis, MN. And the guy lives in Miami?? Wayyyyyy too many red flags here. I email him back this morning telling him deal off and attach the link above with the Larry Gregg Smith story and he never even replied to me! This guy is a old fashioned con artist and should be thrown off the forum.

Just wanted to get this out there ASAP!!

Click the red triangle to report it to a Mod.

Otherwise they might not see it for some time

Guys I just took care of this, in the future please do as posted above, use the red triangle. These things are very time sensitive and people could be out thousands. It’s fine to start a thread but do the proper reporting to the moderators first.

I had the same experience and figured out it was a scam via reaching out to reference on the forum that had done business with timewarped80 in the past. From there figured out the account was likely faked. One other clue was the account had turned off private messages making reaching the real account owner impossible.

Stay safe people!
