Hello - some folks have informed me that this email has emailed them pretending to be me.
This is part of their email, "I'm emailing you because I ran into some awesome deals on a few watches and was wondering if you would be interested at all. I have a Stainless steel Daytona 116520 black face V serial in mint condition for only $13,000. It's a great price on a great watch, I'm helping my brother in law find a buyer for them as he's wanting to unload a few of his pieces. It has a complete set of box and papers and includes extra links. I would buy it myself but my funds are tied up from the holidays.

I am also selling for him a Rolex Day Date 228235 18kt Rose Gold 40mm like new and complete for $27,000. A Hublot Big bang carbon fiber like new and complete for $7,000 and a Rolex Submariner 116610LN like new and complete for $8,500 If your interested let me know. I'm emailing a few friends and past customers of mine to see if there interested before listing these watches."

Their phone number is 651-299-0638

They also used pictures that I'm pretty sure were stolen from other TRF posts as well.

Their writing style and word choice is not a giveaway, like other typical scams, and they seem somewhat knowledgeable regarding watches. Please be careful!

I can always be reached in here via PM or @

For others who have had this happen to them, what have you done? Any tips or additional precautions I should consider? Please PM me and don't post it here.
