It's an interesting thread. Sellers are admonished over and over to walk away if they get a bad feeling, or if they detect any red flags. Of course, in that case, the seller is going to go by his/her own subjective feelings. Here, apparently, there was a legit buyer but, for whatever reason (personally, I don't need to know), the seller became uncomfortable. He then had two choices: 1. Communicate his discomfort to the buyer. If you do this, though, not knowing the buyer personally, you have no idea how the buyer will react and it might be badly, or, 2. Just pull out of the deal. It's kind of a damned if you do; damned of you don't type of situation.

Glad this worked out okay.

The seller here developed a ďfeelingĒ before he shipped that watch that sent red flags up in his mind and caused him to reconsider. The buyer played by all the rules but still the seller had that feeling in his gut which many of us have experienced before. Communication issues aside it would be helpful to know from the seller what those feelings were which gave him pause. This could potentially help other legitimate buyers and sellers in the future. Nonetheless, i am glad that the parties here have worked it out and hope the buyer finds the watch he is seeking! Best
The title is misleading. It says "beware". Maybe it should be re-titled. It seems most people (including on this forum) jump to conclusions just based on the title of a thread. Right now title is a black mark for the seller. It even comes up on google as a negative thread https://www.google.com/search?q=ckpe...hrome&ie=UTF-8

Each transaction rests on its own merits and losing the memorialization by deleting the thread would dis-serve TRF members.

ckpeters beware

I would be wary of dealing with this seller based upon the OPís statement about accepting payment then subsequently cancelling sale.

This is not the behavior TRF members expect from trusted sellers here.

Further, that seller lurked on this thread and chose not to respond - so we are left to believe the OPís version of the transaction.

My guess is the seller got a wire deal for better money, and told the OP to look elsewhere. Not an upstanding way to do business. But we will never know how it really worked from the sellers standpoint. I know who I'm not doing business with....
