Beware of scammer

Hey folks,

Iíve been contacted by several forum members who I know, who have been contacted by a scammer posing to be me. This scammer has offered a WG Pepsi GMT w/ box and papers for $19,500 among other Watches and is posing to be a seller. Chances are he contacted me regarding a watch at some point, asked for references, which I provided and he is using them to have people vouch on my behalf so that he can scam them. He used the name Autaviano Augustus (Enrique)

He is contacting folks using this email address: aautaviano@gmail.com. Notice the two AA in the beginning of the email address. My original address only has one A.

He is located in Philadelphia and this is his cell phone number 267-483-9444. When called he will say something like this is my personal number or some BS.

Please spread he word and be careful out there guys. $20k is a lot of money to be scammed out of.

Best

A

Good morning folks,

I woke up to several more emails from forum members stating that this scammer has contacted them and offered up Pateks, APs, Hublots and other vintage pieces in the +20k range. For those who know me, I never carry or offer modern pieces to sell.

Please be careful folks. Again he uses a similar email address that has a double A in the beginning. AAutaviano@gmail

Be careful guys!

E
