WARNING: "ddhak22@gmail.com"

Fellow TRFers, a fellow member just informed me that there is a scammer out there posing as yours truly using the email address "ddhak22@gmail.com" (which is very close to my real email address: dbhak22@gmail.com - notice the "dd" instead of "db" in the scammer's address).

The scammer is going by the handle 'watchzone22' and here is an example listing: http://chronocentric.com/forums/chro...read;id=107606

Be safe out there folks,

Daniel

Just got approached for a reference check for buddy Daniel here and naturally, it was another scammer with nearly identical email address.

Please always speak to sellers on the phone, check credentials carefully and communicate openly in the forum so we can bring more awareness/safety for all.

Safety before fun

Why do you have 2 accounts on trf? When you click on your FS in your signature on Watchrecon it brings you to this listing: https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=679236
Which is a totally different username than the one you are posting with in this thread?

I donít have two accounts. If you read the listing you linked, it is another member that referenced my username in the listing as someone he has bought from. Watchrecon picks it up from keyword search.

Correct. I donít believe you can link directly to seller accounts but if anyone knows of a way, Iíd be happy to know. I can confirm I sold a watch to David (dvn) as well.

Folks, I completely understand we need to put any seller or ďsellerĒ under the microscope; including myself. That was the the point of my thread here; to help folks as they do their due diligence. If anyone ever has any doubts about me as a seller, Iím always happy to get on the phone, FaceTime, etc. (and have done so many times over the years), :)

I'd take that off your signature, kind of weird and confusing....
