Acquanutilus scammed me on a Tudor Bracelet.

He reached to my inquire on WTB a Tudor Bb58 bracelet. I sent him the payment via PayPal and he never responded to me after the payment.

You have not provided any facts, data, timeline, or other information that would lead anybody to conclude that you have been scammed?

Accusations are serious for a seller, so making such a statement needs backup for us to evaluate.

He reached out to me on PM, we spoke about the deal and I sent him payment last Wednesday. He stopped responding to any PM and text since then.

I hope that is enough evidence. Still no response via PM, text or phone call from him. I do apologize for any newbie move I have made on my part. Just trying to protect others on larger purchases thru the seller.

I've banned the account pending proof to admin that he is who he says he is.

His designated location is in a completely different part of the USA to his IP location, in addition to this allegation, he needs to redeem himself.

There's too much bad stuff happening on the FSoT section to be complacent.

Thank you for the support. I was worried as I saw his account banned over the weekend but able to post FSOT again this morning.

He tried to scam me as well yesterday. Wanted a large deposit on a 116688. When I was looking up his screen name it said banned. I then asked him why he was banned and he mentioned that he bumped his postings to much and the moderators temp banned him.

Be careful everyone..

I received a scam email from same guy also responding to my want to buy a certain bracelet also. Sorry for your loss, but I spotted it as BS and deleted and it stopped there. Definitely a scam.

Valid question. Acquanutilus redeemed himself? How come the account is no longer banned? What's the story?

He is totally legit. I bought a JLC Reverso from him a couple years ago. English is not his primary language Italian is. However he will still talk to you on the phone.

Can you share the listing link you mean?

You might PM Welshwatchman who originally banned him for the OP’s claim.

Obviously, I wouldn’t engage in a transaction if he is truly ghosting you.

It appears to me that Acquanutilus' account was hacked and taken over by Hasan Chowdury. From my understanding, Acquanutilus original account owner's name was Giulio.

OP, if you're interested;

Hasan Chowdury
