Stall tactics, BS support, etc.

The first red flag is that his GF is going to keep the watch. And thats before he picks up an empty box. I feel for the OP, but he clearly needed the school fees.

The OP wired the seller money way before the "first red flag" appeared. What would you have done differently if it were you in that situation, at that point, that might have yielded more success?

It has been two weeks now. Maybe I can smell BS sooner than most.

Either way, life is the best teacher. Willing to bet the seller didn't have either watch.

The seller already gave the OPís friend the Hulk (in person). The Hulk is currently being mailed by the OPís friend (in Cali) to the OP. So heís already getting one watch. The Batman is the one still MIA.

Again- really sorry about the lack of integrity in some individuals
can't possibly get my friends to keep helping me run around dealing watches.

this is a 1 off assistance by them which i am truly grateful for.

for those who wants to try scamming, beware, anything can be dug out.

first win for me as of now

Congrats! Some are saying the hulk is possibly a fake. Have you authenticated it just to be sure?

Yes they do. This story would seem to be quite convoluted. No questioning the OP but, its very strange.

So sorry to hear this bud. I got robbed for my hulk in New Orleans. I'm still shook over it.
