Highly Questionable Milgauss CL Houston/Dallas

Guys, this is highly fishy. The watch is listed on CL in both Houston and Dallas with different pictures but the description is the same. Additionally, the price is a little different but very very low for what it is supposed to be. I've tried to communicate with the seller by email and txt but he will not reply. Maybe someone else can try because he may have sniffed me out. If it turns out to be legit (highly unlikely) I will buy the dang thing to flip

anyone that says "I'm not a scammer" that many times in a row is probably a scammer. I like the way he positions Paypal "hey even if I DID scam you, paypal will cover it. "

The lady doth protest too much, methinks

If you look at the pictures you see that there are two different watches one on the sharp picture and the other one on the blury ones (Look at Oyster perpetual writing in Relation To ROLEX). The sharp picture is probably a stolen one from an Original with an MK1 dial.
